Spinach is one of the easiest and the healthiest foods you can consume on a regular basis. We’ve said it before, but it may be worth repeating – the more dark green leafy vegetables you consume, the healthier you’ll be and the more weight you will lose.
Spinach is is loaded with nutritious vitamins and minerals, including folate, iron and lutein. Spinach also contains healthy doses of phytonutrients, natural chemicals which have anti-inflammatory properties that help ward off diseases and germs, making it a great choice for your immune system. Raw spinach is also rich in potassium and vitamin C, which again are natural immunity boosters. Add it to your next smoothie!
One serving of spinach contains (30g) roughly about Vitamins A, B, C and K, very few calories, calcium, iron and beta carotenoids.
