At least 2000 years ago, the ancient Greeks cultivated collard greens, with evidence showing they are different types of collard greens.

Collard greens provide excellent amounts of vitamins (C, A, K, and B6), minerals (calcium and magnesium). Among the other nutrients contained in them are thiamin, choline, niacin, and pantothenic acid. After kale, collard greens are a rich source of vitamin K. Vitamin K aids in bone growth as well as clotting. Low vitamin K intake may also contribute to osteoporosis, which is characterized by fragile, easily-broken bones.

When you consume enough vitamin K daily, your body absorbs calcium and strengthens your bones. The consumption of collard greens can help you reduce your risk of degenerative bone diseases such as osteoporosis.
