If you are looking for ways to have a healthier diet, green leaves and vegetables are the best solution for you. Apart from their wonderful taste, they offer countless health benefits.
Green leaves like lettuce, parsley, coriander, and dill, are rich in chlorophyll. The greener the food, the more chlorophyll it contains—the substance that produces energy in plants. The chlorophyll in the body contributes to the formation of red blood cells, improves blood circulation, raises the level of iron, and contributes to the cleansing of toxins.
Greens are rich in an important phytochemical called lutein that helps strengthen vision. Lutein is the most powerful antioxidant for maintaining eye health and it also reduces the risk of developing eye diseases from a genetic source as well. Lutein also helps maintain the cardiovascular system and skin system and contributes to overall health.
Green leaves are especially good for the digestive system. Green leaves contain digestive enzymes, thus helping us digest other foods and alleviating unpleasant side effects of the digestive system.
Green leaves are rich in dietary fiber that improves the digestive process, helps lower cholesterol, contributes to satiety and weight loss.
