What better way to start your day than with a healthy dose of vitamins? Spinach is the king veggie of providing you with your daily dose and is considered one of the healthiest foods for your body. The heart reaps a ton of benefits from spinach due to its high density of vitamin C and A. This is because of the great antioxidant features that eliminate or greatly reduce the amount of free radicals in the body. The end result? Hindering cholesterol from oxidizing, contributing to an ideal and healthy functioning cardiovascular system. Folate and magnesium also help the cardiovascular system which keeps your heart healthy and in shape.(1) So, if a healthy heart and a delicious drink is important to you, blend this Orange-Ginger Green Smoothie together and drink up!
