Benefits Of Kale With A Spinach Kale Power Smoothie Recipe

Did you know that kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods? Of all of the superfood leafy greens that there are, kale wins out for a top spot in nutrients by weight. Kale is a virtual powerhouse of vitamins and minerals.

 

A 100 gram serving of kale contains:

  • 200% of your RDA for Vitamin C
  • 300% for Vitamin A (from beta-carotene)
  • 1000% of the RDA for Vitamin K1
  • Vitamin B6
  • Potassium
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Copper
  • Manganese.
Kale is also low in substances called oxalates. Oxalates prevent the absorption of minerals in the intestine and thus decrease the bioavailability of food. Kale is also loaded with some beneficial bioactive compounds like Isothiocyanates and Indole-3-Carbinol both of which have been shown to fight cancer in some recent studies.

 

Kale with its leathery thick skin provides some other benefits as well. Unlike lettuce and spinach, kale holds up much better in cooking giving it a much wider application in the kitchen. Bottom line is, you don't need a diploma from Yale to know the benefits of kale!

Human Growth Hormone & Insulin-Like Growth Factor - Building Muscle & Burning Fat
Human Growth Hormone & Insulin-Like Growth Factor - Building Muscle & Burning Fat

by Dr. David Minkoff January 27, 2022 6 min read 0 Comments

Growth Hormone (GH or HGH) is a key hormone that helps us build muscle and burn fat.

Your muscles are made of cells that have been fused together into muscle fibers. And on the outside of these fibers are things called satellite cells.

When you work out you damage cells in the muscle fibers. To fix this, your body releases Growth Hormone, Growth Factors (other hormones) and Testosterone. These tell the satellite cells to start replicating to both repair and replace damaged cells in the muscle, and also to add more cells, increasing the muscle fibers in size.

What Causes Cravings For Sugar And Junk Food — And How Do We Reverse This?

If your cells are taking in less sugar because they’re resisting insulin knocking at their door to let in sugar, then the cells have less energy to work with. 

That sugar is there, and insulin is happily converting it to fat, but your cells aren’t getting it so of course they’re hungry and will keep telling you to eat more until they finally get some.

I’ve been asked many times about the one vitamin or supplement a person needs for good health, about this or that diet, about going Vegan or going Carnivore, and much more.

So I wanted to take a moment to look at some things here. Not the pros and cons of different diets or the importance of one vitamin over another, but instead — how you can determine what is right for you.
