You’ve probably heard that it is important to have iron in your diet. There are a number of reasons why this is the case, but in a nutshell, iron is a mineral in our bodies that play a vital role in helping blood carry oxygen throughout the body.
Without enough iron, you can become anemic: Tired, dizzy, cold, headaches and some difficulty breathing. Leafy greens are a great source of iron, so adding some spinach to our Green Super Smoothie is a great way to get the iron your body needs.1
Tip: In addition to being a good source of iron, spinach is also chock full of antioxidants and good for your skin. The honey also contains antioxidants and is also good for digestive health.
