Collard greens are abundant in vitamins A, K, C, Folic acid, iron, calcium, and manganese. These nutrients help to protect our cells from damage and support the body's natural processes for controlling inflammation. Collard greens also contain the phytochemical, indole-3-carbinol, which helps the body metabolize excess estrogen. Collard greens are relatively cheap when compared to other cruciferous vegetables like kale and brussel sprouts. As always, it's best to buy organic vegetable to avoid toxic pesticides, which can inflame the body.
