Spinach is such a fantastic veggie, so versatile, and also comes along with it’s very own special list of health benefits that help cleanse the body. Phytonutrients, a main ingredient found in spinach, help detox the body and boosts liver function to keep the gut healthy. It also reduces inflammation in the digestive tract using carotenoids. And did we mention spinach is fiber rich? Fiber in the morning will help promote a healthy bowel movement and prevent constipation or other digestive irregularities.

TIP. Other great great sources of fiber include oranges, bananas, avocados, popcorn, carrots, sweet potatoes, cocoa powder and whole grain pastas.

The Cons —
There are none silly***! Spinach has virtually no flavor on its own, is nutrient rich and pairs well with everything. Use it to add color and texture to your salads and smoothies. However people with leaky gut,kidney stones or suffering from fibrosis, fibromyalgia, thyroid disease, arthritis or asthma should eat spinach in moderation.
