Green vegetables are the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet; they’re very low in calories and pack one helluva nutrient punch.
They’re high in antioxidants; carotenoids; flavonoids; vitamins A, C, E; folic acid and calcium among a myriad of other vitamins and minerals. They’re also packed with dietary fiber that won’t irritate human body’s digestive system like other fiber.
Besides protecting against heart disease and cancer, eating green vegetables keeps the vision sharp and bones and teeth strong as the person older.
Green vegetables are very alkaline food and can help regulate human blood to healthier alkaline state. Disease and destruction occur more readily in a body that is mostly acidic (also known as acidosis).
The strongest members of the green team are the cruciferous vegetables: broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale and bok choy. These vegetables are especially rich in a huge variety of antioxidant phytonutrients as well as vitamins and minerals.
