Happy National SPINACH Day!!!! 🌴🍀☘️🌿🍃Do you buy organic spinach? How do you add spinach in your diet? 10 Reasons to Be Like PopEye and Eat More Spinach!!! 1. Spinach Aids Detoxification The green color of spinach is not just a color, but it contains a special chemical called chlorophyll, which has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used to detoxify the body from any toxins that affect it. 2. Perfect for Weight Loss If you are looking for a diet that contains less fat and carbohydrates and more nutrients and minerals, spinach is the perfect food item for you. As a bonus, it also contains fat soluble fibers that can help with weight loss through proper digestion, lowering blood sugar and mitigating the effects of overheating. 3. Spinach Keeps Eyes Healthy Spinach contains two essential chemicals that act as protectors of the eyes from cataracts and other age related problems. These two chemicals are Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Another bonus of eating spinach is that it contains vitamin A that is responsible for keeping the mucus membranes healthy, which helps preserve your eyesight. 4. Strong Bones Some of what they showed us in the Popeye cartoon was true. Spinach does make our bones stronger because it contains vitamin K. Most of the vitamin K we receive is produced in our gut (if it’s healthy!) but if we add spinach- it’s enhanced! 5. Reduces Hypertension Hypertension is another name for a rise in blood pressure. A high blood pressure can cause multiple problems in our body such as kidney failure or a heart attack. 6. Spinach Helps You Sleep Better Spinach is the perfect muscle relaxant. You might notice that when you consume a good amount of spinach, you will feel drowsy and want to sleep, which is due to how it contains high levels of zinc and magnesium that may help us sleep better! 7. Provides an Immunity Boost Spinach is a vital source of vitamin A in the body. It helps in strengthening the immune system of the body and helps in replenishing the white blood cells. You have less of a chance of getting sick if you were to consume spinach regularly. 8. You Can Look Younger Eating spinach can improve your complexion and your skin situation as well. It is rich in antioxidants that destroy all skin related problems that may cause premature aging! 9. Combats Hair Loss Iron deficiency mostly causes hair loss. Most of the populations of the South Asian countries are deficient in iron which causes them to lose hair as they grow old, which happens due to anemia, which is a disease related directly to not having enough iron in the body. It contains the necessary folate and iron. They work simultaneously to produce red blood cells and later on carry oxygen properly to all parts of the body. 10. Helps Acne Yes, you heard it right. The biggest problem that teenagers and many adults face is acne. You can even make a mask by grinding spinach and mixing it with a little water. The anti inflammatory properties of the spinach mask work the same as any face wash would. Make a smoothie out of all the vegetables you have available in your house including spinach to detoxify your body of all toxins and help in rejuvenating your skin. Continuous use can produce tremendous results.Read More
Nicole Andrews has become a superstar in my life! Before Nicole I had major IBS and digestive problems that I didn’t understand or control. It was when a prominent gastro doctor referred her to me for these chronic problems that I found hope. She shared her incredible knowledge with joy and enthusiasm and never lost patience with my constant questions. I learned how to discover the culprits that affect my digestive system and cause IBS. From solving my health issues to learning how to prevent future ones through nutritional and wellness guidance I am now a much wiser senior. Yes, she is a wonderful teacher!!! She remains her calm smiling self and probes deeper into the reasons for causing my own downfall and suggests alternative lifestyle changes. Besides nutritional supplements, correct diet and exercise it is the whole person…body, mind and spirit that Nicole works with. Yes, I am truly grateful that Nicole came into my life.
