What Are the Benefits From Eating Kale Chips?

Kale has many health benefits, from weight management to healthy eyesight.

If you’re looking for a healthy and tasty way to eat kale, try some kale chips. These organic and raw kale chips retain all the nutritional value of the kale, creating a low-calorie, nutrient-dense snack that is quite beneficial for your health.

Weight Management

Eating kale chips can help with weight management when you substitute them for other high-calorie snacks. A whole bag of kale chips contains just 160 nutrient-dense calories. Many unhealthy snack foods like cookies, donuts or potato chips can contain more than 300 calories in a typical serving. Furthermore, the nutrient density is nil. Switch from a 300-calorie snack to kale chips and you’ll save about 140 calories each time. Do this three times a week, and you’ll lose about 7 pounds a year because of that change alone.

Excellent Eyesight

Kale is a nutritional powerhouse when it comes to supporting eyesight. One cup contains 206 percent of your vitamin A needs in the form of beta-carotene and all the other naturally occuring carotenoids. Carotenoids protect the surface of the eye as well as the retina. In addition, a 2011 study from the National Eye Institute found that beta-carotene, in combination with other nutrients, helped reduce the risk of developing advanced age-related macular degeneration. Age-related macular degeneration is the No. 1 cause of blindness in the United States for those over age 55. Though the National Eye Institute study focused on supplements, increasing these nutrients through food is likely to have even greater beneficial effects. Kale is also one of the best food sources of lutein and zeaxathin, two carotenoids that are highly concentrated in the retina of the eye. Your body does not make these carotenoids, so you must get them through the foods you eat. According to the American Optometric Association, lutein and zeaxathin help to reduce the risk of chronic eye diseases, age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. Lutein and zeaxathin play an important role by filtering harmful rays of light and act as antioxidants.

Heart Health

Kale contains no cholesterol and no unhealthy saturated or trans fats making it a good choice for cardiovascular health. The organic sunflower seeds and organic sesame tahini contained in these kale chips are good sources of heart-healthy essential fatty acids. When unsaturated fats are consumed in place of saturated fats or refined carbohydrates, they can help to lower your LDL -- or “bad” -- cholesterol and raise your HDL -- or “good” -- cholesterol. An antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound in sesame tahini known as sesamol, which also harnesses anti-atherogenic properties, is thought to be one reason for the beneficial cardiovascular effects. According to GreenMedInfo, sesamol has been shown to “possess over two dozen beneficial pharmacologically active properties, many of which may contribute to improving cardiovascular health”.

Nutrient Dense

In addition to the nutrients that help with eyesight and heart health, kale chips contain a variety of other important nutrients. In serving of kale chips, you’ll consume 420 percent of your daily vitamin K needs to support bone health and proper blood clotting. These kale chips also contain 10 percent of the daily value for calcium. Kale is considered the single most nutrient dense food in existence.
