HEALTH BENEFITS OF SPINACH AND BANANA

SPINACH: Experts have identified at least thirteen different flavonoid compounds in spinach that provide antioxidant and/or anti-cancer benefits.  These substances, along with other nutrients, offer a variety of healthy reasons to eat spinach – OFTEN!

Lutein, found in spinach, may also benefit eye health by reducing the risk of macular degeneration, according to the American Macular Degeneration Foundation.

Vitamin A and vitamin K are two of the prevalent vitamins in spinach and they are known to help regulate blood flow, maintain bone health, preserve cell health and help the cells in the body grow normally.

The beta-carotene and vitamin C in spinach may also help prevent diabetic heart disease by reducing free radicals and preventing the oxidation of cholesterol so it cannot stick to the walls of the blood vessels.

Fresh banana is a rich source of potassium (100 g fruit provides 358 mg potassium).

BANANA: Potassium is an important part of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure, countering negative effects of sodium.

Banana also contains soluble dietary fiber, which helps “keep you regular”. Small amounts of health promoting flavonoid poly-phenolic antioxidants, like lutein, zea-xanthin, ß and α-carotenes, which all help protect against oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in various diseases processes and aging.  Also found in bananas, are vitamin C as well as vitamin B6, which assists in the treatment of neuritis, anemia, and helps decrease homocystine (one of the factors of coronary artery disease (CHD) and stroke episodes).
