Originally belonging to Persia, spinach is a popular green vegetable that has an array of health benefits. It remains available in the market throughout the year but its peak season is between March and June. It is a rich source of essential pigments, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Belonging to the Amaranthaceae family, spinach can improve your eyesight and is good for heart health too. Here we tell you about some more benefits of eating spinach.

Provides neurological benefits:
Having a high level of antioxidants, spinach can improve cognitive function. Spinach also reduces the occurrence of Alzheimer’s disease due to the presence of folate in it. This means that people with cognitive difficulties can consume spinach. It has potassium, which is a significant part of brain health. Its daily intake can increase your blood flow to the brain and can increase concentration, and neural activity.

Relieves haemophilia symptoms:
Being rich in vitamin K, spinach can increase the production of prothrombin and help in blood clotting. This is how spinach consumption can provide relief from the symptoms of haemophilia, a rare disorder that is characterised by lack of sufficient blood clotting, unusual bleeding, unexplained irritability, pain etc.

Boosts bone health:
Calcium is the most important mineral for good bone health. And, spinach helps in retaining calcium in the bone matrix and leading to mineralisation of bone due to the presence of vitamin K in it. It has a storage of some other essential nutrients including manganese, magnesium, zinc, copper, and phosphorus, that are known to build strong bones. These nutrients can potentially prevent the onset of osteoporosis.
