Why is spinach good for you?
Not only is spinach a source of Vitamin A which promotes healthy, clear skin and vision, but it’s also a source of Vitamin C which aids the growth of healthy connective tissue to support the organs and wound healing.
In addition, this leafy veg is also rich in folate, which helps the body form healthy red blood cells and reduces the risk of central neural tube defects to unborn babies.
