What are the benefits?

Raw spinach is high in soluble fiber, which helps aid in good digestion and can help reduce cholesterol levels. It is high in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, B6, C, and E, which all help regulate immune function and fight off infections. Spinach is also an excellent source of vitamin K, folic acid, iron, and magnesium.
