Secret Side Effects of Eating Spinach

1. You may lose weight

A 2014 study published in Appetite found that, among a group of 38 overweight women who were given either a beverage containing spinach extract or a placebo,

those given the spinach extract experienced up to a 95% reduction in food cravings and lost 43% more weight than members of the control group during the study period.

2. lower blood pressure

Getting your blood pressure into healthier territory may be as simple as adding some spinach to your diet. According to 2015 research published

in the journal Clinical Nutrition, study subjects who consumed high-nitrate spinach soup over the course of seven days experienced reduced arterial stiffness & lowered their systolic blood pressure.

3. reduce your risk of heart disease

A 2021 study published in the European Journal of Epidemiology found that eating just one cup of nitrate-rich leafy greens, like spinach,

per day could reduce a person's risk of peripheral artery disease by as much as 26%, and can lower people's risk of heart attack, heart failure, and stroke.

4. reduce your risk of vision loss

According to a study published in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, among a group of 380 men and women between 66 and 78 years of age,

those with lower levels of zeaxanthin, a nutrient abundant in spinach, were significantly more likely to have age-related macular degeneration.

5. reduce your colorectal cancer risk

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that, among 2,410 individuals whose data was collected as part of the

US Department of Agriculture-Nutrition Coordinating Center carotenoid database, those with higher dietary intakes of lutein, an antioxidant found in spinach, had lower rates of colorectal cancer.
