7. Diabetes management
It has been studied that individuals with diabetes exhibit lower or improved blood glucose levels when they follow a high fiber diet. Kale has a fair amount of dietary fiber that can help improve glucose level readings and there is also an antioxidant known as alpha lipoic acid which is beneficial in lowering glucose levels, increasing insulin sensitivity and preventing oxidative stress in individuals with diabetes.
Inclusion of kale on the menu can contribute to a healthy daily intake of alpha lipoic acid.
