Food facts from the anti inflammatory kitchen: Spinach.
Beyond its beauty benefits, it’s no news that spinach and other dark green leafy vegetables are excellent sources of nutrients and anti aging antioxidants and pigments. However, you might not be getting the calcium you think you are from spinach due to its high levels of oxalic acid, which blocks calcium absorption. To help mitigate this, pair spinach with a healthy fat such as raw chopped nuts, extra virgin olive oil, goat cheese or feta to your salads to enhance calcium absorption.
