We’ve all been told repeatedly how leafy greens are natures super-vegetable because they’re an excellent source of potassium, fiber, magnesium, as well as vitamins A, C, and K.
Furthermore, due to their lutein contents – a phytochemical – they help in reducing the risk of macular degeneration caused by aging. And if that weren’t enough, they contain very few calories so you can go to town on these delicious greens.

As a leafy green, gai lan contains all of these health benefits including the fact that is has zero fat, zero cholesterol, and it’s low in sodium!
