Spinach is a great source of vitamins and minerals:

One spinach leaf contains more than half of the daily requirement for this vitamin.

Folic acid: Also known as vitamin B9 or folate. This vitamin is essential for normal cell function and tissue growth and is much needed by pregnant women.

Iron: Spinach is a rich source of this mineral. Iron helps create hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to the body’s tissues.

Calcium: A very important mineral for maintaining bone health.

Spinach also contains other vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin E, but in smaller amounts.

Spinach is extremely healthy and has been linked to numerous health benefits. Helps reduce oxidative stress, improves eye health and lowers and regulates blood pressure, which facilitates the work of the heart. It stimulates the functioning of the pancreas, which helps the kidneys work. Spinach is a real detoxifier for the body, cleanses toxins and awakens all the slowed down metabolic processes.
Spinach also strengthens the hair follicles, strengthens the nails, and preserves and maintains the vitality of the skin. It maintains the health of the nervous system, but also strengthens and maintains the immune system, thanks to the high amounts of vitamins it contains. The huge amount of folic acid clearly indicates that spinach should be consumed by anemic people and pregnant women, it also contains a lot of iron, so it is effective no matter what the anemia is.
