All through my life, I have always had to struggle to be just great at what I do and be accepted, however, I have just learnt to enjoy my life and accept that I can’t be perfect. I must learn to enjoy the moments, for there are so many people who have lost their lives to Covid-19.
.
You see, life, itself, is a gift. Like a wise sage once said, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift; that is why it is called the Present”

Dear readers, do learn to enjoy your life. Do what you can and leave the rest to God.

Sometimes when we try so hard to get something we don’t often get it, but when you do your best, relax and leave the rest to God Almighty, it comes to you easily.

So today, we will be looking at Spinach.

Spinach is a leafy vegetable that can be found in Nigeria. It can be cooked as a soup and it is very delicious. It is also rich in vitamins A and C, protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Spinach also contains magnesium, folic acid and iron. The 5 health benefits of Spinach are:-

1) It contains MGDG and SQDG that slow down the growth of cancer.

2) It helps to preserve one’s sight and prevent blindness.

3) Due to its rich iron content it helps to treat anaemia

4) It helps to reduce high cholesterol.

5) It is good for prevention of foetal malformation in pregnancy due to its rich folic acid content.

Well, dear readers, this is all we have for you today. Remember, in life, it is not by our will but by the grace of God. Today’s take is “Live life to the fullest, you deserve to”.

Join us again next time as we go through another wonderful fruit. Till then it’s I, OCB, your Nature Pharmacist.
