Health Benefits

Spinach

* With over 25% of the recommended daily intake of fibre, spinach aids in digestion, prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugars and curbs overeating.

* Because of the phytonutrient, flavanoid, present in spinach, cell division in the stomach and cancer cells have been shown to slow down. This phytonutrient also protects against aggresive prostate cancer.

* Antioxidants such as vitamin C and E, beta-carotene, manganese, zinc and selenium found in spinach, help to combat against osteoporosis and high blood pressure.

Blueberries

* Blueberries contain compounds and antioxidants that can help to prevent and cure cancer. Studies show that these compounds can not only inhibit cancer cell growth, but also to kill them as well.

* A large handful of blueberries can aid with constipation, whilst the antioxidants help with digestion.

Strawberries

* Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents found in strawberries, form an excellent defense against many cancer forming cells.

* Eat three servings of strawberries and other fruits each day, to guard against age-related eye diseases, such as cataracts and macular degeneration, by over 1/3rd.

* One cup of strawberries can help to lower blood pressure and ensure a healthy immune system.
