Arugula is a great health food! This leafy green is full of vitamin K, a key component for maintaining healthy bones and brain activity. Arugula is also a great source of all kinds of other nutrients, including calcium and potassium.

Spinach Health Benefits

Spinach has all sorts of powerful health-boosting benefits. First, it’s a great source of iron, and also provides a ton of vitamin C and E. Together, these nutrients help support a healthy immune system.

Grapefruit Health Benefits

Like spinach and arugula, grapefruits are fantastic for your health. Grapefruit is full of nutritious fiber that helps maintain a healthy heart, gut, and cholesterol levels. Grapefruit is also known for its high levels of immune-boosting vitamin C.
