Juice Spinach

Not sure if you know this but Spinach has a PERFECT 100 Nuval Score!! For those new to the Nuval game it is a great tool to tell what foods are good vs disguised as good but really bad... Example:

  • Quaker Steel Oats Oatmeal: Nuval Score 60
  • Quaker Chewy Granola Bar: Nuval Score 13

Not to pick on Quaker but this is a prime example of where Junk Food can be advertised as Health Food. Anyways back to Juicing. The point I'm trying to make is that Spinach is what is called a Superfood!! Meaning they are jammed packed with Immune Boosting/Disease Fighting Vitamins, Minerals & Antioxidants... Spinach for example has super amazing health benefits:

  • Vitamin K: Strengthens Bones!!
  • Beta Carotene: Super Cancer Fighter
  • Lipoic Acid: Regulates Blood Sugar
  • Potassium: Reduces Risk of Heart Disease
  • Vitamin A: Enhances Night Vision
  • Fiber: Helps Lose Weight
  • Iron: Improves Brain Activity
  • Lutein: No One Wants Cataracts
  • Niacin: Lowers Bad Cholesterol
  • Riboflavin: Processes Fats & Proteins
  • Phytoecdysteriods... For Popeye Strength

Now you can't overdose on spinach but just a quick word of warning that a cup full of spinach juice is not the most appealing drink however a handful when mixed with green apples or cucumber will facilitate the above benefits while being quite enjoyable at the same time...
