Benefits of Green Vegetables - Why Should You Have Greens Daily?
Greens are an important part of a healthy diet. We all know that. Densely packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber, green vegetables contain a hoard of benefits for your body, including reduced risk of heart disease, high BP, obesity and mental decline.
Despite being a convenient and ready source of some of the hardest to find minerals and vitamins essential for the body’s wellbeing, greens have been traditionally frowned upon. Whether you blame its taste, or whether you blame pop culture – the truth is, in a country like India, we need to step away and eat more greens.
Why? Because approximately 39% of the global adult population is classified as overweight. The prevalence of overweight and obesity in India is actually increasing faster than the world average. For instance, the prevalence of overweight women increased from 8.4% to 15.5% between 1998 and 2015, and the prevalence of obesity increased from 2.2% to 5.1% over the same period.
In such a time, it’s important to find an easier way to consume your leafy veggies – and that’s one of the biggest reasons why we came up with Daily Greens. Made from 39 Farm Fresh Vegetables, this tablet is packed to the brim with nutrients and all the benefits of green vegetables for easy consumption.
Four main ingredients of Daily Greens are Spinach, Kale, Aloe Vera and Broccoli. Here’s how they help your body.
Benefits of Spinach
Popeye may have oversold the benefits of spinach, but it’s still a ‘superfood’ in its own right. Rich in calcium, magnesium and iron, spinach helps reduce blood pressure, promote bone health, reduce hypertension, and boosts your immunity too.
Furthermore, its anti-inflammatory properties means that it helps you prevent acne and get glowing skin, and being low in calories, it helps you on your weight loss journey as well.
Benefits of Kale
One of the most nutrient dense foods on earth, kale is rich in vitamin A, K, C, B6, manganese, calcium, potassium and magnesium.
Being rich in antioxidants, kale helps counteract the effects of oxidative damage, helps lower cholesterol and reduces the risk of heart disease as well.
And like spinach, it helps you lose weight as well. No wonder it’s a part of every salad, ever!
Benefits of Aloe Vera
The topical benefits of aloe vera are very well known, but consumption of its juice has numerous benefits too. This healthy elixir keeps you hydrated, improves liver function, battles constipation, gives you clear skin, heartburn relief, and greater digestive balance too.
It also contains calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium and zinc, making it nutritionally beneficial as well.
Benefits of Broccoli
A terrific source of fibre and protein, broccoli is full of iron, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, as well as a range of vitamins essential for your wellbeing. In fact, it is packed with minerals and bioactive compounds as well, truly helping it earn the moniker of a ‘superfood’.
Furthermore, broccoli contains potent antioxidants, reduces inflammation, helps control your blood sugar levels, supports heart health, and promotes healthy digestion as well.
