Swiss Chards Anti-Inflammatory Spotlight

Swiss Chard a leafy green that does not get enough time in the spotlight in my opinion is a shining star when talking about anti-inflammatory. Not only does this dark leafy green pack a punch when it comes to Vitamin C, E and A. chard is also has an abundance of antioxidants as well as phytonutrient antioxidants. Why are these phytonutrient antioxidants so special? These antioxidants have been shown to have great anti-inflammatory properties.
These phytonutrients can be found in the plant’s leaves, and colorful stems. Although not a lot of research has been done on the impact of these phytonutrients on disease like arthritis you can rest assure that research will be emerging on the effects of this nutrient dense plant.
