There is a reason kale is one of the most popular superfoods out there. Kale is an extremely nutrient-dense leafy green. It contains important nutrients like vitamin K, vitamin A, and vitamin C. On top of that, it is powerful supporter of the immune system and brain development.
Although they are small, microgreens pack quite the healthy punch. According to Healthline, they are rich in antioxidants and a great source of potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, and copper. Also, because their nutrients are more concentrated, you can receive many health benefits when only using a small amount. Microgreens are a perfect choice for smoothies!
Perhaps one of the most popular greens, spinach is an easy green to incorporate into any smoothie! It provides a variety of vitamins and minerals and even contains calcium which supports healthy bones. According to Healthline, spinach may also improve oxidative stress, eye health, and blood pressure.
