Swiss chard is a nutrient dense green leafy vegetable that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, C, & K, and minerals such as iron, calcium, and magnesium. Swiss chard is incredibly important for bone health and to help prevent breakage, fractures, and osteoporosis. Swiss chard also contains a compound called syringic acid which has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels in the body making it a great food for those who have diabetes or blood sugar issues.
It is also particularly beneficial for anemia, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, constipation, and breast, prostate, ovarian, bone, liver, stomach, pancreatic, and colon cancers. Swiss chard has powerful anti-inflammatory properties making it an ideal food for those who suffer with autoimmune disorders such as cardiomyopathy, fibromyalgia, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, lyme disease, and type 2 diabetes.
It also contains a large number of phytonutrient antioxidants such as betalains which have been shown to help protect the body from chronic illnesses such as heart disease, multiple sclerosis, and COPD. The nutritional benefits of swiss chard are most readily available when eaten raw or juiced.
Swiss chard is a wonderful leafy green to add color and flavor to your salads, smoothies, sandwiches, wraps, and nori rolls and it makes a tasty addition to your freshly made juices. It is also a relatively easy vegetable to grow in containers and in the garden for the freshest variety. Swiss chard can be readily found in your local supermarket, health food store, and farmer’s market.
