Spinach boasts so many health benefits. It is a great source of vitamins A, C and K, as well as some fiber, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamin E. You can eat it raw in salads or cook it up and serve it alongside a chicken breast. If you don’t like the taste of spinach, throw a handful into a homemade smoothie. You won’t be able to taste it at all – and your body will still reap the benefits.
So take it from Popeye, and if not take it from the experts at Harvard Medical School, who claim spinach is good for combating a range of conditions, such as ovarian cancer. The 2002 Harvard study monitored a group of 66,940 women who ate diets high in the flavonoid kaempferol (evident in spinach). Data proved that the flavonoid reduced the risk of ovarian cancer risk by 40-percent compared to women who consumed low to no levels of flavonoids.
