# 1 – Kale has strong antioxidant health benefits which gives your body strong cancer fighting abilities!!!
Kale’s cancer preventive benefits have been clearly linked to its unusual concentration of two types of antioxidants – carotenoids and flavanoids.
Like most of its fellow cruciferous vegetables, the health benefits of kale has been studied more extensively in relationship to cancer than any other health condition.
These benefits of kale originate from its antioxidant and anti-cancer properties in the form of glucosinolates and isothiocyanates.
If you have an insufficient intake of antioxidants you may suffer a metabolic problem called “oxidative stress.”
In addition – when you have an insufficient intake of anti-inflammatory nutrients you can possible experience the problem of chronic inflammation.
Oxidative stress and chronic inflammation are risk factors for development of cancer. Having a balanced diet and a regular intake of kale will help to fight this!
