Collard greens offer a range of health benefits. Not only do collard greens supply good doses of protein, fiber, calcium and iron, but the green vegetables also provide more impressive amounts of other key vitamins and minerals.

Picture this: one cup of boiled collard greens contains 63 calories, 5 grams of protein, 1 gram of fat, and 11 grams of carbohydrate. In other words, it provides over 250 percent of a person’s daily needs for vitamin A, over 50 percent of vitamin C, 26 percent of calcium, 1 percent of iron, and 10 percent of both vitamin B-6 and magnesium, according to the Medical News Today.
