Kale is one of the excellent vegetable sources for vitamin-K; 100 g provides about 700% of recommended intake.
Vitamin K also has a potential role in bone health by promoting osteotrophic (bone formation and strengthening) activity. Adequate vitamin-K levels in the diet help limit neuronal damage in the brain; thus, kale has established a role in the treatment of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
This smoothie also adds citrus fruits for a good kick of energy and antioxidants. It also helps cover the bitterness of the kale a bit.
