Curly Kale protects
Kale contains 3 important phytochemicals: glucosinolates, bioflavonoids and sterols. These help protect the body from certain carcinogens, offering cancer fighting properties. They also help reduce oestrogen activity in the body, giving protection from oestrogen related cancers.
Bioflavonoids stimulate the immune system. They also make blood platelets less sticky helping reduce the risk of blood clots and heart disease.
Sterols influence the absorption of cholesterol from food and its metabolism.
