Kale has a 3:1 carbohydrate-to-protein ratio, which is a very high amount of protein for a vegetable. It also contains all nine essential amino acids needed to form proteins in the body as well as nine other non-essential amino acids. Kale contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Kale is rich in carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin, vitamin C and many essential minerals. New research shows kale might be of value in treating cancer, lowering blood lipids, and reversing glaucoma.
