Sauteed Shrimp with Spinach

Benefits of Spinach:
1- Helps maintain brain activity:

Scientists at Rush University in Chicago conducted experiments on 950 people, with an average age of 81, who added spinach to their diet and were more active than those who refused to eat it.

2- Spinach helps you feel strong:

It speeds up protein synthesis, which helps build muscle. The results of experiments conducted at the Swedish Karolinska Institute on animals showed that the nitrates in spinach help to enlarge the muscles, because the person needs 200 to 250 of them.

3- protect the heart:

Spinach contains omega-3s which the body does not produce, so it must be obtained from food. As we know, the high price of omega-3 helps prevent arthritis, stroke, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.

4- Preserve your sight:

Spinach, like other vegetables, is rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, which help prevent cataracts and protect them from the harmful effect of UV rays by 50 to 60%. It also showed the results of a study conducted at the Ohio University of America.

5- Helps control appetite:

Spinach is a substance rich in dietary fiber.

For every 100 grams of spinach, there is 2.2 grams of fiber, or 10% of the amount a person needs every day.

6- Fight against cancer:

Spinach has anti-cancer properties because it contains carotenoids (organic pigments) which give fruits and vegetables their usual colors and act as antioxidants.

7- Reduces the risk of stroke:

Doctors believe that patients who eat a lot of potassium with food are less likely to have a stroke than those who take potassium as a supplement. And in every 100 grams of spinach, 15% of the amount of potassium the body needs per day.

8- It keeps the skin healthy and fresh:

According to the Mayo Hospital of America, spinach is a clean food because it contains a high percentage of vitamin A, which prevents aging of the skin and maintains its health.

9- Anti-depression:

Spinach prevents depression because it contains 19% of the amount of magnesium the body needs on a daily basis. Low levels of magnesium and serotonin, which play a crucial role in improving mood, cause depression.

Ingredients:
1 cup of fresh baby spinach
