LEAFY GREEN VEGETABLES

Because of their chlorophyll content, leafy green vegetables are an excellent way to help alkalize the body, which, as I mentioned before, reduces inflammation and helps maintain bone health.

Chlorophyll also cleanses and oxygenates the blood, making it a true performance enhancer. More available oxygen in the blood translates into better endurance and an overall reduction in fatigue. In their raw state, chlorophyll-containing plants also possess an abundance of live enzymes that promote the quick rejuvenation of our cells. The consumption of green foods after exercise has been shown to help speed cellular regeneration. The consumption of chlorophyll-rich leafy green vegetables combined with moderate exercise is the best way to create a biologically younger body. Ounce for ounce, dark greens are also an excellent source of iron and calcium.

All leafy greens are nutrient-dense and an excellent conduit for minerals in the soil; here are some of the more readily available ones:

•Beet greens

•Butter lettuce

•Collards

•Dandelion greens

•Dinosaur kale

•Mustard greens

•Red leaf lettuce

•Romaine lettuce

•Spinach

•Swiss chard
