Variety is the spice of life so, to reap the many health benefits of leafy greens, make sure to include a variety of these vegetables in your diet.

Help with weight loss

Greens like spinach, chards and kale are low energy density foods, low in calories but high in fibre and water. This provides bulk that will keep you, fuller for longer. This helps a lot with weight loss and weight management. Add to these healthy leafy greens some healthy nutrition supplements and you should be able to get your weight down and under control. 

Improve your sleep quality and mood

Eating green, leafy vegetables will make you happier! Collard greens and mustard greens contain a substance called Choline which affects your mood, learning and memory as well as your sleep cycle. Uno Nutrition offers TruFuel, a nutrition supplement for general health, for people of all ages to allow you to live a normal, healthy life and to age gracefully. 

Help bowel movements

Insoluble fibre helps improve bowel movements by pushing waste through your digestive tract and out of your body. Leafy greens that are high in water also help to prevent and treat constipation. As we age our bodies generally become more infirm and we are less able to control our movements.
