As strong as Popeye

 

spinach is indeed a wonderful plant that can affect lifelong health and improve many bodily functions.

A green leafy vegetable often associated with the cartoon classic Popeye, spinach is indeed a wonderful plant that can affect lifelong health and improve many bodily functions. It is high in essential nutrients, vitamins, iron, calcium, and fiber, and can be served raw or cooked by sautéing, boiling, or adding into baked goods.

There are many varieties of spinach, but no matter which kind you choose, scientific studies are showing that the darker the leaves, the healthier the plant is for you. A rich emerald or deep green spinach plant can have some of the highest concentrations of iron and fiber, as well as vitamins B, C, E, and K.  This intensifies the nutrients that boost the immune system. It promotes heart and cardiovascular health, digestive function, and bone and joint health.

Finally do you know that spinach can last up to eight months frozen but it does lose a large portion of its nutrients this way. It is a “delicate” leaf, which means that it softens with heat, and it’s often served in stir fry, soups, and sauces when cooked.
