Just One Cup Of Leafy Greens A Day Prevents Heart Disease
A new study has found that just one cup of raw leafy greens a day can result in a 26% lower chance of heart disease.
Leafy greens include nitrate-rich vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, lettuce, cabbage and kale.
The researchers examined the health records and eating habits of over 50,000 people in Denmark.
It was found that those who ate a lot of leafy greens had a 12-26% lower chance of developing cardiovascular disease.
There are many ways to enjoy leafy greens, including in salad and in a fruit smoothie. However, juicing them is not recommended.
Blending leafy greens is fine, but don’t juice them. Juicing vegetables removes the pulp and fiber, Dr. Catherine Bondonno, Study Author.
