YOU and how Chard can help you

The following is from foofacts.mercol.com

Swiss chard is not only a superstar in Mediterranean cooking but also one of the most nutritious vegetables around day.  It has

distinctly large, dark green leaves which are harvested at various

stages of maturity.  The whole plant with tender, young leaves

can be used for salads, while the individual large-sized mature

leaves can be harvested for sautéing and cooking dishes.

 

I juice chard and then I can drink from refrigerator for 3 days if

kept in a hermetic jar and I freeze it in small mason jars and then

add turmeric and olive oil to it for my juice drink.  Of course, what

you have to remember is HOW good it is for your body while it

does not taste like a good fruit juice but is better for your body

then the fruit juice.

 

Chard has an impressive phytonutrient profile, as easily

recognized in its vibrant colors, from dark greens to red, purple,

and a rainbow of colors in its stalks and veins.  Phytonutrients

is a source of antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory and whole body?

benefits.

 

Source of vitamin K, omega 3 fats, vitamin A, and flavonoid

antioxidants such as beta carotene, alpha carotene, lutein, and

zeaxanthin.  It ca also be count to provide B-vitamins such as

folate, niacin, vitamins B6, thiamin, and pantothenic acid, which

are all essential for cellular metabolism to function optimally.

 

The mineral content is copper, calcium, sodium, potassium, iron,

manganese, and phosphorus.  Potassium is considered the “good

salt” and has made headlines for its role in helping lower blood

pressure, while the iron is required for cellular oxidation and the

formation of red blood cells.

One of the primary flavonoid antioxidants found in the leaves of

chard is a flavonoid called syringic acid.  Syringic acid is known for

regulating blood sugar levels, making it the object of much

research over recent years as diabetes diagnosis rates have

continued to increase. Something else noteworthy about chard

nutrition is its anti-aging antioxidants also help to prevent cancer,

heart disease, eye, and skin disorders, neurodegenerative

disorders, and much more.
