If you’ve seen the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, you’re going to understand why kale is such a hyped vegetable. First of all it provides the body with micro nutrients to maintain a strong immune system. But the most interesting and appealing reason why you should eat/drink kale is because of the Vitamins A, C and E. ACE is the solution to declining collagen production in our skin. To make the skin produce new fresh collagen to maintain normal elasticity and protect the skin against free radicals, the body needs huge amount of vitamins and antioxidants. And it’s not enough to put some fantastic anti-age cream on your face, you need to feed the collagen production from the inside. Every bad thing you eat, will appear eventually on the outside no matter how many skin care products you use. Eating the right stuff will solve all your skin problems, if not all your health problems.
