Renewing the Mind, Body, and Spirit through juicing

Kale vs. Spinach

Throwing some leafy greens into your juice is a great way to trick your taste buds into getting added fiber and calcium — it purees so well with the sweeter ingredients that you can’t even taste it. I usually add whatever I have in the fridge.  But does one offer bigger nutrition bang for your buck?

Kale does win for slightly more bone-strengthening calcium, as well as tons more immune-boosting vitamin A. It also offers half your RDI of vitamin C, which is also needed for a healthy immune system. Kale also offers a crazy amount of vitamin K, which is needed for blood clotting and bone health.

These two leafy greens definitely pack a nutritious punch for different reasons, so choose the one that’ll fill your vitamin and mineral needs. If you’re pregnant or have high blood pressure, spinach might be the one to reach for, and if you feel like you’re coming down with a cold, grab some kale. If you’re not sure, add both to your Juice!
