the spirit of spinach
some of us remember spinach as a childhood nightmare. in many families it was the go-to green being served right from the can! Though it wasn't very tasty from the can, our mothers and grandmothers weren’t mistaken about the incredible nutritional value of this green. The benefits of spinach have been known for ages. From Hippocrates to Victoria Beckham… almost every era of human history knows the true spirit of spinach :)
laser sharp vision - because of the high content of vitamin A spinach helps protect the surface of the eye (cornea)
strong bones - our bones love the combination of calcium and vitamin K found in spinach. these two ingredients work together to build strong bone tissue and help prevent the loss of bone density
weight loss support - thanks to magnesium and thiamine spinach plays a crucial role in supporting a healthy metabolism and transforming carbs into energy
the enemy of anaemia - spinach is loaded with iron ~ a very important component of hemoglobin… the protein in our blood responsible for carrying oxygen to our cells
