The green leafy vegetable apart from being rich in iron content is also good for weight management. Spinach has certain compounds called thylakoids that boost weight loss by 43% according to a Swedish study. These compounds slow down the digestion process. Therefore if you have a glass of spinach juice before your breakfast your food cravings can reduce. It was found that food cravings reduced by an impressive 95%. In the study, women who drank the green drink in the morning could stick to three meals a day. They didn’t feel hungry or the necessity to have snacks in between. Spinach can now be used as a major aid in healthy weight loss. One has to be clear off pesticides though.
