It’s Packed with Vitamins and Nutrients
And when I say “packed,” I mean packed. Some key players are potassium, zinc, magnesium, iron, folate, calcium, and vitamins A, B6, and C. And that’s only part of the list!
It Improves Eyesight
You’ve probably seen those lutein capsules at the pharmacy that promise to preserve your vision. Guess what? Spinach naturally contains it— as well as beta carotene and xanthene, all of which help to keep your eyes healthy and irritation-free.
It Boosts Your Metabolism
Because spinach is super high in protein, it helps metabolism in many ways — think better muscle development, faster healing of wounds, and even curbed cravings.
It Reduces Inflammation
Spinach is also great for inflammation throughout the body, as it contains more than a dozen anti-inflammatory compounds! Although I work on strengthening my knees regularly, my past running injuries still flare up from time to time, so eating naturally anti-inflammatory foods like spinach is a great way to keep my joints moving pain-free, without medicine.
