Popeye is a famous character who relies on spinach as his strength source. In fact, spinach is very healthy and nutritious so it should not be forgotten in our diet. This article will discuss the spinach as a useful source of vitamins and nutrients as well as how to treat spinach appropriately.
Spinach can be highly toxic!
Spinach contains a variety of vitamins (A, B, C, and E), valuable minerals, such as nitrate, manganese, potassium, and folic acid. Spinach also contains lutein and zeaxanthin in high quantities. Both of these substances give a strong protection from various diseases caused by viruses.
Although it contains many useful substances, it is not advisable to reheat spinach because reheating will change nitrates into nitrosamines, a carcinogenic agent which can encourage cancer risk.

If you eat in the next day, eat it in cold condition, it is better! In short, the spinach is very useful for our body as long as not heated more than once.
