* Curly kale is necessary for every woman!
This is a delicious and nutritious food that must be present in any woman's diet, as this close relative of cabbage is very rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. Due to their nutritional value, Gruncol and Browncol have earned the title of “Queen of Greens” and “Nutrient Generator”.
A source of carotenoids, flavonoids, beta-carotene, vitamins K and C, lutein and calcium, kale is considered more nutritious than many other green vegetables.
Surprisingly, in terms of the percentage of amino acids, it is practically not inferior to meat, and the use of 200 grams of this vegetable daily is enough to fully provide the human body with protein.
Grunkol is especially useful for women as it helps protect against cancer, including breast cancer, as it affects hormonal balance.
The calcium in this vegetable is absorbed faster than calcium from milk. Thus, it is very useful for the prevention of osteoporosis and arthritis.
Protects not only against chronic diseases, but also has a beneficial effect on the skin: antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc stimulate collagen production, thereby preventing premature wrinkles.
With only 34 calories and 1.3 grams of fiber in one cup of chopped browncoli, it is valuable as a supplement to any weight loss diet.
Curly cabbage contains substances that are useful not only for the body, but also for the hair: the iron contained in it contributes to their growth and nutrition, increasing blood circulation on the scalp. Thus, women who want to have long hair simply need to use it.
If you often catch colds, include curly cabbage in your diet, because this vegetable improves the functioning of the immune system.
Curly kale is especially useful for vegetarians - it contains more iron than beef!
