Your grandmother was right. You should eat your greens. Why? You ask. Because they are good for you!! But, do we really know how good those bright green leaves are for our nutritional armor and overall good health?
Green leafy vegetables carry an impressive list of nutritional credentials. This food group includes stars such as spinach, broccoli, collards, turnip greens, kale etc. which all deliver an armory of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients (nutrients found only in plants)
Some grasses are included in this list of nutritional gems such as wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, and lemongrass.
Green leafy vegetables have been credited with having the most concentrated source of minerals including iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. The vitamin armory includes vitamins K, C, E, and many of the B vitamins.
Spirulina and chlorella are algae which are in the group that has been credited with boosting the immune system, detoxification, and chelating effects (heavy metal cleansing).
Consuming dark leafy vegetables help to alkalinize the body, thus ensuring another set of health benefits.
This food group has also been credited with certain phytonutrients including beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which protect our cells from damage and our eyes from age-related problems. Some studies suggest that lutein and zeaxanthin may help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.Dark green leaves are said to even contain small amounts of Omega-3 fats.
Because dark leafy greens have very few carbs, and their fiber content is high, they are slow to digest, and so have a low glycemic index, helping to maintaining healthy blood glucose levels.
