BENEFITS 

The dark green color of spinach leaves indicates they contain high levels of chlorophyll and health promoting carotenoids (beta carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin). These phytochemicals have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous properties and are especially important for healthy eyesight, helping to prevent macular degeneration and cataracts.

Fresh 100 g of spinach contains about 25% of daily intake of iron; one of the richest among green leafy vegetables. Iron is an important trace element required by the human body for red blood cell production and as a cofactor for oxidation-reduction enzyme, cytochrome-oxidase during the cellular metabolism.
