Posted By: Lindsay Schroeder Posted In: nutrition Date Posted: March 29th, 2013 Comments: 0

Did you ever watch Popeye as a child and see how much he loved spinach? And how it made him really strong? Well spinach IS good for your body – and it’s also great for your skin! It is packed with antioxidants and minerals including protein, iron, calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Niacin, Phosphorus, Thiamin, Potassium, and Magnesium, just to name a few. Read along to learn some other amazing information on Spinach!

1. UV Ray Protection – Spinach contains Vitamin B which protects the skin from dangerous UV rays that cause sun damage, skin cancer, and premature aging of the skin.

2. Vegetable of Youth – Studies have shown that eating spinach regularly will keep you looking younger longer! It slows down age-related degeneration and stops premature aging of the skin.

3. Clear Complexion – Rich in Vitamin K and Folate, spinach helps to give you clear skin, minimizing acne, bruising on the skin, and dark circles.

4. Keep it Raw – The best way to consume spinach is by eating it raw, as opposed to cooking it. Cooking the spinach can kill some very valuable nutrients in the vegetable and that is never good. Add spinach to a salad, on a sandwich, on sliced tomatoes with mozzarella cheese and basil, on top of entrees, blended into a smoothie, etc.

5. The Most Beneficial Way to Enjoy Spinach – In a smoothie. Why you ask? Well, apparently simply chewing the leafy green vegetable does not allow us to break down the vegetable well enough. The spinach’s cell walls need to be broken down completely for so the vital/essential enzymes can be released and absorbed into the body appropriately. The best way to accomplish this is by blending it in a blender and enjoying it in a smoothie.

6. Glowing Skin – Spinach will add a beautiful glow to your skin! Thanks to all the amazing antioxidants and nutrients in spinach, it will even out  your complexion and leave your skin looking radiant.
