Salads are great for losing weight and reducing risk of obesity because you can eat a full plate of veggies and still have only a fraction of the calories of other meals. Not only will those vegetables help you to maintain a healthy weight while still feeling satisfied, they also contain high levels of important vitamins and nutrients such as vitamins B, C, E, magnesium, potassium, and iron. These nutrients have important benefits for the proper functioning of the brain and muscles; they help regulate and increase moods, keep energy levels high, improve immunity to disease, and help maintain healthy hair and nails.
Everybody knows that green foods, veggies in particular, are healthy for you. But why is that? In general most green vegetables have high vitamin and nutrient contents, but recent research is suggesting that the chlorophyll, the actual molecule created during photosynthesis that creates the green coloration in plants, is capable of doing wonders for our health. Chlorophyll increases red blood cell counts and increases the circulation of oxygen within our bloodstreams. The more greens you eat, the more chlorophyll you take in, increasing the powerful cleansing benefits of this powerful little molecule.
