The Healthiest Dark Leafy Green Vegetables

Incorporating leafy green vegetables into your daily diet helps improve your health. They can help reduce the risk of obesity and cardiovascular diseases, as well as control blood sugar levels.

Which green vegetables are the best to include in your diet? Here are some of the best kinds of leafy greens to consume:

1. Collard Greens

These loose-leaf vegetables taste bitter, but they’re packed with a lot of nutrients. They belong to the same family as kale.

Collard greens contain Vitamin C, B9, A, and K, as well as calcium.

2. Kale

Kale greens pack so many nutrients and are one of the most popular green vegetables.

Not only does it contain various vitamins and minerals, but kale also contains lutein and beta-carotene. These antioxidants counter the effects of oxidative stress in the body.

What is oxidative stress? This occurs when the body experiences an imbalance of antioxidants and free radicals. If not countered, it can result in cell and tissue damage.

3. Spinach

Spinach doesn’t just make Popeye strong, it also makes anyone who eats it strong and healthy.

This unassuming green can be added into smoothies, soups, and salads. You’ll love eating it because it contains Vitamin K and A, as well as manganese and folate.

What is folate? Also known as Vitamin B6, this nutrient assists in cell growth and red blood cell production.

4. Turnip Greens

These are the leaves of a turnip plant and classified as cruciferous, which means they can help lower the risk of developing health issues like bowel inflammation and cardiovascular diseases.
They also contain various antioxidants to help the body fight off the effects of oxidative stress.

Other leafy green vegetables to include in your daily meals include arugula, watercress, Romaine lettuce, Bok Choy, and Swiss chard, although not everyone finds green vegetables appetizing.

But now another category of greens is becoming an integral part of a healthy diet: super greens
