It also provides your bod with a healthy dose of protein, phosphorus, vitamin E, zinc, dietary fibre and copper. Stack on selenium, niacin, and omega-3 fatty acids – Spinach is a one-man-show-with-more-to-give! It’s also packed with flavanoids which act as antioxidants, protecting the body from free radicals. That means that Popeye’s favourite lunch can help protect your body from disease.
