When it comes to being healthy, one of the first things that anyone should consider is upping leafy green intake (like kale!) A lot of people, despite trying to be healthy, tend to ignore these otherwise healthy vegetables.
This can be particular true of people who are overweight; one study discussed in Prevention magazine noted that not only do people with higher body mass indexes (BMI) often lack certain nutrients—frequently because of their dining habits—but the lack of those nutrients might actually contribute to obesity.
"Vitamin A, the paper notes, is linked to regulation of fat cells and the hormones they release—and could play a role in maintaining healthy body weight," writes Caroline Predario.
So, eating your kale—not only because it's dense with nutrients, but because some of those nutrients may regulate fat in the body—can be extremely beneficial when it comes to health, as well as weight loss.
Kale is full of vitamins and very low in calories. It offers your body fiber along with high levels of Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, calcium and manganese. So getting a daily serving of kale—whether in leafy form in via EasyKale—may help with weight loss and overall health.
In another study, powdered kale was shown to lower plasma glucose levels as well, which have been linked with weight loss and diabetes prevention.
Flavanoids get a lot of credit for weight loss as well; according to the site centerformedicalweightloss.com, the flavonols (one type of flavanoid) in kale may contribute to weight loss. Flavonols also get credit for weight loss properties in the story "Want to Stay Slim?" in Canada's The Globe and Mail.The good thing about EasyKale over leafy kale is that because of the method used to dehydrate it, EasyKale loses a lot of the bitter taste associated with kale.
That gives you more options for how and when you can consume kale—most of us are unlikely to have cooked or raw kale every day; with EasyKale, that kale can sneak into a smoothie, the mayo on your sandwich, a bowl of chili or even in dips like hummus and guacamole.
