Swiss Chard has great health benefits!
One cup of nutritionally dense boiled chard provides over 100% of your daily recommended intake of both vitamins K and A. That same cup also boasts more than half of your day's needs for vitamin C and loads of other nutrients, namely fibre, vitamin E, and the minerals magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, and a host of B vitamins. It contains 13 different polyphenol antioxidants. It is a source of betalains (found in the stem and veins) which have an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying effect on the body. And you get all of that for a measly 35 calories per cup!
