Rainbow Swiss Chard Is Full of Disease-Fighting Polyphenols

Rainbow Swiss Chard Is Full of Disease-Fighting Polyphenols

September 05, 2019

Swiss chard, otherwise known as beta vulgaris, is the same plant as the common beet.  Historically, beets have been selected and bred for their colorful and flavorful roots, whereas Swiss chard was selected and bred for its leaves. In fact, it has been bred so much for nutrition and color that one of the commonly grown varieties is called Rainbow chard. Unlike common chard, which is green with a hint of red, Rainbow chard contains most of the colors of the rainbow in its leaves.

 

Although all cooked greens are very nutritious, chard is particularly full of healthy polyphenols, which are the chemicals the plants use to combat disease.   Our Swiss Chard Powder is made completely from organically grown Swiss chard, full of the colors of the rainbow, and processed in a way that mimics how we use it at home.

 

Enjoy our Swiss Chard Powder on any savory dish to add both flavor and a healthy dose of disease-fighting nutrients. 

 

In health,

Tom Cowan, M.D.

March 17, 2020

Clearly, everyone’s attention is on the current crisis going on worldwide.  It is important to remember that our immune system is largely responsible for clearing toxins and “debris” from our cells and tissues. The less burdened our bodies are with toxins, the better we can respond to microbes and other outside pathogens.  With this in mind, here are the six things I do to try to keep my immune system and detoxification pathways as strong as possible.
