Internally ;)

But seriously, off the top of my head, they are very high in trace minerals, fibre, natural sugars. The leaves are very high in iron and Vit. K (which is essential for blood clotting so you don't bleed to death from a paper cut). And a bunch of other good stuff that I bet someone else here can give you in more detail.

Basically they are a really good food for cleansing toxins and for the cardiovascular system. I've often seen them included in anti-inflammatory diets.
