Numerous studies have proven that spinach has a number of positive effects on the human body. By consuming spinach regularly, you get lots of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
Spinach contains vitamins A, C, and K, B group vitamins, potassium, magnesium, iron, various antioxidants, lutein, zea-xanthin, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and even protein.
Spinach is Rich in Potassium –Spinach is one of the best dietary sources of potassium. A hundred grams contains 558 mg of potassium, which is 16% of the daily value.
By contrast, a hundred grams of bananas (which has always been considered the champion of potassium) contains 358 mg of potassium.
Potassium is responsible for preserving bone mineral density as well as retention of muscle mass.
Potassium is also well known for its properties to prevent the formation of kidney stones as well as control heart rate and blood pressure.
Spinach and Magnesium – Spinach is also the richest dietary source of magnesium, containing 79 mg of this mineral per hundred grams (20% of daily value intake).
Magnesium is important in protein synthesis, regulating neural activity and maintaining nerve function as well as regulating blood pressure and blood sugar levels
Rich in Iron – Spinach is the richest source of iron among other vegetables. One hundred grams contains 2.7 mg of iron, which helps regulate red blood cell production and prevents anemia and hair loss
Spinach and Antioxidants – Spinach leaves contain a great variety of antioxidants: vitamins A and C as well as polyphenol antioxidants, lutein, beta-carotene, and zea-xanthin.
Such a rich and potent antioxidant combination protects your body from oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS)
These two affect the aging process and the development of various diseases.
Spinach is Rich in Protein – For a vegetable, spinach has a surprisingly impressive amount of protein—2.9 g per one hundred grams.
In fact, proteins in spinach are easily digested and broken down by enzymes into amino acids that are especially vital if you’re working out in the gym.
Kaempferol and Nitrates – Spinach is high in an antioxidant called kaempferol, which lowers the risk of developing cancer and various chronic disease.
At the same time, spinach promotes good heart health thanks to its high content of nitrates
Spinach and Eye Health – Zea-xanthin is a crucial dietary carotenoid, which is partially absorbed into the eyes to prevent age-related macular disease. Thus, zea-xanthin provides your eyes with antioxidant and protective light-filtering properties (23).
Lutein contained in spinach improves eye function and prevents degeneration of the retina.
It’s especially beneficial to eat spinach regularly if you spend a lot of time in front of your PC or laptop.
Lutein reduces tension in the eyes by accumulating in the eye tissues.
In fact, luteinalso prevents eye problems that occur with ageing
Spinach is Rich in Vitamin A – Vitamin A contributes to eye health and maintains your skin in good condition.
Spinach is extremely rich in vitamin A, as a hundred grams provide 9376IU of vitamin A, which is 188% of the daily value intake
Spinach and Vitamin K – Spinach leaves are also very rich in vitamin K, as a hundred grams contains 604% of the daily value intake.
Vitamin K is vital for your health, since it strengthens the bones and stimulates the bones’ osteotropic activity.
Spinach contains both soluble and insoluble fiber, both of which have beneficial effects for your health.
While insoluble fiber prevents constipation and improves the functioning of your digestive system, soluble fiber prevents your body from absorbing fat and cholesterol from food
