Phytonutrient Chard, Broccoli and Eggplant

Phytonutrient Chard, Broccoli and Eggplant

Vegetables are great sources of phytonutrients.  We don’t always appreciate how unique each vegetable can be in terms of their flavor and phytonutrient potency.

Recent research has shown that chard leaves contain at least 10 different polyphenol antioxidants, including kaempferol,  that’s also found in broccoli, kale, strawberries, and other foods.

With Chard, fewer carbs are broken down into simple sugars and blood sugar is able to stay steadier. It makes sense to think about chard as a vegetable and may offer special benefits for blood sugar control.

Like beets, chard is a unique source of phytonutrient called betalains and they can be found in chard.

Chard has been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. So you can see that in the case of chard, beauty is far from just skin deep!
