Kale (Brassica oleracea or wild cabbage) prevents

macular degeneration and brain degeneration 

I’ve just read an article in Natur&Heilen 2/2024 that Kale can prevent macular degeneration- this eye disease leading to blindness. It also prevents brain degeneration. It is thanks to carotenoids Lutein and Zeaxanthin. 

To absorb these ingredients one should eat kale with some fat. And not heat it over 40C. 

Brussels sprouts, broccoli, spinach would also have these ingredients.

It is said in the article that it would also slow down the degenerative process, if it has already started, but not reverse the degeneration.

Apart from these carotenoids, kale has Vitamins A, B2, C, E, K, and Calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron…

Kale improves the capacity of the brain, reaction, short memory and …. Apart from caring for the eye sight, it reduces wrinkles…

What a vegetable!

By the way, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, spinach have similar qualities. 

One can google Dr. Henning Vollert microbiologist.
