How to cook chard vegetables

Fried eggs with chard vegetables

Chard is high in fiber, which improves digestion and helps bind and eliminate toxins in the body. The leafy vegetables are also rich in folate (folic acid). The vitamin supports together with vitamin B.6 and vitamin B12 the breakdown of the amino acid homocysteine, which is a risk factor for atherosclerosis. In addition, folic acid is particularly important for women: If you want to have children or during pregnancy, the vitamin has been proven to protect against deformities in the unborn child.
