Kale also provides high amounts of Vitamin C and B6, but also extremely rich in carotenes which work as an antioxidant in supporting the immune system. The dressing comprising of lemons, sunflower seed butter, ginger, and apple cider vinegar work together in decreasing inflammation, and supporting overall liver function.
