Did you know that salads can effectively boost four vital nutrients every person needs?
People across the world are trying to eat healthy, and salads are a big part of that equation.
In a recent issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, a study of more than 9,000 women and 8,000 men found that those who eat salads and raw vegetables have higher intakes and better blood levels of four nutrients: vitamins A and C, folate and the phytochemicals or plant nutrients called carateneoids. These nutrients are tied to reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.
So, make sure to include salads in your regular food intake.
