One of the benefits of kale!!
The Anti-Cancer Health Benefits Of Kale

Skeptics question, “is kale really that good for you?” With a resounding “yes”, kale is actually one of the world’s most health-promoting superfoods. Yet, sadly, if you did a search at the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen or any other conventional resource (online) – you’ll find nothing on the health benefits of kale. Why?

While cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts have long been studied for their anticancer compounds, the vast health benefits of kale put it at the top of the list as a potent cancer preventive.

Clinically proven to offer widespread immunoregulartory effects, kale contains a myriad of compounds that have been shown to help stop the conversion of certain lesions to cancerous cells. As a result of these combined compounds, kale has been shown to prevent and fight against cancers such as breast, prostate, oral, colorectal, kidney and esophageal.

Studies show kale enhances immune function and prevents cancer growth

The immune-enhancing and anticancer health benefits of kale are a result of several compounds such as indoles including di-indolemethane (DIM) and indole-3-carbinol (I3C) plus isothiocyanates, derived from glucosinolates.

Isothiocyanates, in kale, were first observed to reduce activation of carcinogens while increasing their detoxification according to Chinese researchers who published their findings in a 2009 review in the journal, Nature. Since then, dozens of studies have focused on understanding which target tissues these compounds act on to assist in developing human trials and to determine therapeutic anticancer dosage ranges.

How does eating kale support the ‘front-line’ of the immune system?

Immunoglobulin A or IgA is an antibody that is responsible for maintaining and enhancing the integrity of the mucosal lining of the gastrointestinal, respiratory and genitourinary tracts. When IgA is deficient, this first line of defense becomes penetrable allowing microbial invaders and other proteins to easily pass into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, other tissues throughout the body can become compromised leading to atypical cellular division.
