Kale. We have all heard about this leafy green superfood. In recent years it has surged in popularity with the general public. It can be found in most grocery stores year round, and in different varieties as well. Red and green kale can be found in the produce section, and kale chips, smoothies, salad mixes, amongst other products can be found as well.

The health benefits of kale, along with other cruciferous vegetables, have been widely studied. This leafy vegetable has been found to work to prevent oxidative stress in the body, as well as preventing chronic inflammation. The combination of these two ailments have been known to lead to certain cancers, including bladder, breast, and prostate cancer.
It is quite clear that eating kale is beneficial for our health, and your local grocery store has responded to the demand by ensuring that fresh kale is available all year round. But many people often go for the processed versions of kale. They feel that it is easier to get the benefits of kale that way then through preparing it at home.
