5 Reasons Why Greens Truly Are Superfoods

Greens on greens! Green foods are superfoods, and there's good reason for this. There are great sources of vitamins, fiber and antioxidants (and more). Here are 5 reasons to eat them. 

  1. Leafy greens contain vitamin K, important for bone health and blood clotting.
  2. Greens (like spinach and broccoli for example, among others) are good sources of vitamins C, A and E, antioxidant vitamins.
  3. Vegetables, green and other colors for that matter, are good sources of fiber, which is important for proper digestion and detoxification.
  4. Greens are a source of B vitamins, important for the production of energy. That means they help convert the food you eat into fuel your body can use!
  5. This next one might surprise you. They contain calcium. You likely can't eat enough greens in a day to get in the recommended amount of calcium, but it helps contribute.
