Popeye was surely on to something with his well-known love for spinach! The dark, leafy vegetable Spinacia oleracea is an incredible source of phyto-nutrients with a host of health qualities and disease prevention properties.
With its crisp, tender dark green leaves, spinach is a recognised, nutrient-dense superfood that packs a punch. It is a storehouse rich with chlorophyll and anti-oxidants including lutein, zea-xanthine and beta carotene as well as Vitamins A and C. All of these compounds act as a barrier against free radicals to help slow down the oxidation and aging process, as well as provide support for healthy eyes and skin.
Spinach is very low in calories yet they are a rich source of soluble dietary fibre. Approximately 100 grammes of leaves provide some 25% of your daily intake of iron, a crucial trace mineral that aids the human body in red blood cell production. Its leaves also contain a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, magnesium, copper and zinc.
Malaysia’s leading supplier of freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juice and smoothies, Juice Works Malaysia, now offers a quick and hassle free way of consuming your daily intake of spinach.
