According to a recent study, regular consumption of kale juice offers health benefits to men who have hyperlipidemia, a condition in which levels of lipids and lipoproteins are elevated in the blood, which increases risk of cardiovascular disease.

When men diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia were given 150 milliliters of kale juice a day for 12 weeks, researchers observed favorable improvements to their lipid profiles and antioxidant systems, both of which can reduce the risks of coronary artery disease for men with hyperlipidemia.

The researchers suggest that men living with this condition can achieve similar improvements with regular consumption of kale juice.
