Benefits of Spinach
There are many benefits of eating spinach and it is actually one of the “free” foods in the hCG weight loss program. Spinach is low in calories and is high in vitamins and minerals. Spinach protects against colon, prostate, and breast cancers and may even reduce risk of heart disease, stroke and dementia. In addition, spinach lowers blood pressure, protects against vision loss, has anti-inflammatory properties, and boosts bone health. Spinach is one of the healthiest, most vitamin-dense foods available on the hCG diet and you can eat as much as you want!
Still need motivation to eat a few servings of spinach every day? Spinach can even protect your brain function from early aging. Spinach accomplishes this by preventing the harmful effects of oxidation to your brain. Individuals who consume plenty of vegetables, especially those of the leafy green variety, experience a decrease in brain function loss. A good rule of thumb: the darker the leaf, the better – and of course, spinach is dark.
