IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH BY INCLUDING THESE VEGETABLES IN YOUR DIET

Table of Contents:

We all know about the need and importance of eating vegetables for our health, but how many of us actually do it on a regular basis? It seems that eating a healthy diet is a difficult challenge to meet, although it really only requires a little responsibility and a touch of enthusiasm.

The main reason why we should include vegetables is quite simple: there is no other natural way to obtain the necessary nutrients to keep the body at its best. You should know that all vegetables help regulate intestinal transit and that the vitamins they provide modulate many metabolic processes.

Next, we recommend some of the most nutritious vegetables that cannot be missing from your diet:

SPINACH
This green leafy vegetable is a great source of vitamins, iron, and antioxidants. Thanks to their high content of calcium and iron, they are highly recommended for diets that do not include meat or dairy. In addition, they provide vitamin K, essential for bones to absorb calcium.

BROCCOLI
One cup of sliced broccoli offers the recommended amounts of vitamin K and twice the amount of vitamin C that is advised to consume daily. In addition, new research seeks to verify that the sulforaphane contained in this plant can reduce the number of cancer cells.

BETABEL (OR BEETROOT)
Prepared as a juice, it can help control blood pressure and improve cardiovascular health. It is also highly recommended for diabetics, because it contains an antioxidant called alpha lipoic acid that is useful in fighting diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage).

TOMATOES
These contain a large amount of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that plays a major role in preventing cancer. Other powerful antioxidants that it provides are lutein and zeaxanthin, which help improve and protect vision.

SEAWEED
This type of seaweed is one of the few plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid, essential in most of the body's functions. It is important to note that all types of seaweed are rich in iodine, a nutrient that improves thyroid function.

Join the challenge of eating healthy, just remember that vegetables lose many of the nutritional substances they have when they are cooked, so your task will be to find recipes that indicate the best way to prepare them and that maintain their nutritional value. Your body and mind will thank you faster than you imagine.
