Popeye Was On To Something!

The Incredible Hulk of the vegetable family are the greens and Mister Spinach here is no exception. Iceberg lettuce needs to be shunned like you would if someone asked you if you want to drink battery acid with your dinner. Okay, maybe a little extreme but iceberg is nowhere near as nutrient dense as spinach.

I recently read spinach can aid in bleeding gums which blew my mind and my fear of a bloody mouth. It also slows the degenerative process, and a great source of calcium. Popeye downed his spinach thanks to it being packed with iron, riboflavin, Vitamins B6, A,C, E,K, as well as calcium and magnesium. It can fight against breast cancer and skin diseases, it’s high in folate (researchers say even cooked it’s beneficial), prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugar, and curbs overeating. Popeye, eat it up! Just get it fresh and not from a can.
