Like many green leaf vegetables, spinach is rich in vegetables, iron, calcium and fiber, which greatly benefits the immune system.

Spinach can be eaten raw or cooked. The important thing is that, before eating it, you wash both the leaf and the stalk very well.

To eliminate any type of impurity or pesticide residue, we recommend submerging it in water with vinegar for a couple of minutes. 

To preserve its color after cooking it, it should be cooked in boiled water with salt for no more than 5 minutes. The color of spinach is a product of its chlorophyll concentration, which purifies the blood and eliminates toxins. Also, its consumption increases red blood cell production.
