Spinach is a nutritional superpower, with high amounts of antioxidents, vitamins, and minerals. It can also help improve eye health, promote healthy hair and skin, reduce blood pressure, and more (click here for a full list of benefits).
For a long time, most people didn’t get too creative with this treasured vegetable. They had it in salads, as a dinner side (creamed or sauteed spinach, for example), and that’s about it.
More recently, spinach has become a popular juicing ingredient. Salads and sauteed spinach are great, but they don’t go down nearly as smoothly as fresh spinach juice.
Plus, a glass of spinach juice can be enjoyed at any time of day, from early morning to late at night. Unless you like eating spinach salads for breakfast — in which case, power to you — juice is probably your only palatable option for any-time-of-day spinach consumption.
