Kale is powerhouse when it comes to brain health. It is packed with iron, folate and vitamin B6. In addition to these brain boosting benefits, studies have suggested that a particular nutrient in kale called lutein may positivity impact the brain health of those middle-age and older. Unfortunately our bodies can’t manufacture lutein so we have to consume it from foods like kale to achieve the benefits.

Kale is also loaded with omega-3’s, the good fat your brain needs to work properly, and vitamin k, a powerful antioxidant that promotes brain cell resilience.

In fact, kale is such a high impact food that a study found that individuals that ate this kale may have cognitive function that is 11 years younger than those who didn’t consume kale.
