The beautiful array of color of swiss chard that range from yellow to reds & purples, will bring delight to any dish. But its color is not the only thing going for this fancy green. Rainbow swiss chard is an excellent source of potassium, calcium and magnesium, minerals that help maintain healthy blood pressure. Health organizations like the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association recommend that adults consume at least 25–30 grams of fiber per day from food. Fiber is an indispensable nutrient that has many important functions in your body. For example, it feeds beneficial gut bacteria, promotes regular bowel movements, helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels and slows digestion, stabilizing blood sugar levels. Just 1 cup (175 grams) of Swiss chard provides about 4 grams of fiber — 15% of the RDI.
Swiss chard is also high in antioxidants, which fight free radicals in your body that may lead to certain diseases. Swiss chard’s many antioxidants include polyphenols, vitamin C, vitamin E and carotenoid plant pigments, such as beta-carotene. These nutrients help protect cells from free radical damage.
