Learning to incorporate dark, leafy greens into the diet is essential to establishing a healthy body and immune system.
Greens help build your internal rainforest and strengthen the blood and respiratory system. Leafy green vegetables are also high-alkaline foods which may be beneficial to people exposed to higher amounts of pollution in urban areas.
The alkaline minerals in our bodies are used to neutralize acidic conditions caused by the environment. Green vegetables will help to replenish our alkaline mineral stores and continue to filter out pollutants.
Nutritionally, greens are high in calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, and vitamins A, C, E and K. They are crammed with fiber, folic acid, chlorophyll and many other micronutrients and phytochemicals.
Some of the benefits gained from eating dark leafy greens are:
- Blood purification
- Cancer prevention
- Improved circulation
- Immune strengthening
- Increased energy
- Improve organs function
- Clearing of congestion in lungs
