You have probably heard your mom saying “finish your vegetables” all your life. It’s a directive that all of us have been trying to unhear. But let me put it straight, your mom is right! Vegetables can make you feel like, or better yet, become the best version of yourself. Here’s how.
1. Keep clear of hypertension
Rich in nitrates & nitrites, green leafy vegetables prevent high blood pressure.
2. Dry skin? Veggies are your go to
If you want glowing, healthy skin, consuming fresh vegetables is the best thing for you to do. Orange and yellow vegetables are rich in Vitamic C, which helps in delaying the onset of wrinkles. Veggies are also rich in antioxidants, that prevent dryness and make the skin extremely radiant.
3. Fight cancer like a boss
Fresh vegetables like cabbage and broccoli have a substance called ‘indole’ that prevents cancer. Furthermore, since vegetables are a great source of antioxidants, they go a long way in protecting us from the fatal disease.
4. Dig in to improve your mental health
5. Say goodbye to bad hair days
Voluminous hair is a far off dream for a lot of us, but not anymore. Rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, iron and calcium among others, vegetables help in the production of natural conditioner Sebum in the scalp. They also have minerals that are required to maintain your hair’s thickness.
