When Life Hands You Kale…

When life hands you kale, make lemonade!

Listen, we know what you might be thinking. “If I see one more article about kale, I’m gonna scream.” Or maybe you can’t help feeling like people are forcing kale where it doesn’t belong — who didn’t roll their eyes when they first read about chocolate-chip-kale cookies?

But this is way different, and you’re already reading, so get hype for Organic Kale Lemonade, people, cause it’s no joke.

It’s your favorite sip with a green kick in its step. So clean and refreshing, you won’t even know what hit you. Made with organic kale, fresh-squeezed lemons, and raw organic agave nectar, our Organic Kale Lemonade packs a healthful punch and is sure to put a boost in your day. 😎

And let’s not forget, there’s a reason for all the hype around kale! It’s just as healthy as it is trendy. But in case you did forget, here’s a reminder of what makes kale such a seriously super food:

Beta-Carotene and Vitamin C

Scrap those sugary blue gummy bears! Kale is rich in beta-carotene and Vitamin C, which are essential to the growth and moisturization of your hair, nails, and skin. The beta-carotene in kale is also important for reproductive health. And if that’s not enough, Vitamin C aids in iron absorption which can help prevent hair-loss associated with iron deficiencies.

Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is found in all leafy greens and can bind to carcinogens from cooked meat to prevent absorption. Of course, if you’re a regular at HipCityVeg, you might not be eating any animal meat anyway…but if you do indulge in the occasional side of bacon, chlorophyll in kale could help prevent related forms of cancer. And even if you are a strict vegan or vegetarian, we imagine the extra chlorophyll couldn’t hurt.

Fiber

Kale is loaded with fiber and fiber is loaded with amazing health perks. A fiber-rich diet can support heart health, digestion, and can even improve blood glucose and insulin levels, especially for those with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Potassium

High potassium intake can reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, ischemic heart disease, stroke, and kidney stones. Decreasing sodium intake along with increasing potassium intake can really help in lowering your blood pressure. Potassium is also great for preventing cramps, preventing loss of muscle mass, and preserving bone mineral density. We don’t know about you, but we like our bones and muscles to be strong and healthy. 💪

We may love kale more than some people, but we hope that by sneaking it into our delicious Organic Kale Lemonade everyone will have a refreshing way to enjoy its incredible health benefits.
