  2. Prevent Constipation: High fiber content supports healthy digestion, helping to prevent symptoms of digestive irregularities.
  3. Support Weight Loss: Salads are low in calories while still being nutrient dense.
  4. Increase Hydration: Leafy greens have a substantially high water content.
  5. Protect Eye Sight: Lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids found in dark-green leafy vegetables, are concentrated in the eye lens and macular region of the retina, thus playing a protective role in the eye.
  6. Prevent Inflammation: Quercetin, a bioflavonoid found in leafy green vegetables, contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that host unique anticancer properties.
  7. Support Bone Health: Leafy greens are a rich source of calcium, contributing to bone health.

  9. Fight Cancer: Rich anti-oxidants prevent oxidative damage to cells, preventing free radicals from causing cancer.
  10. Strengthen Immune System: Vitamins and minerals found in leafy greens work together to prevent colds, flu, and infections.
