Spinach leaves contain minerals such as potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc and manganese. These help the body regulate body fluids, cell functions, heart rate and blood pressure. And they help create robust, useful enzymes.
Avocados can balance hormones, increase metabolism and fight disease. Avocados contain plant sterols, such as beta-sitosterol, which have antiestrogenic properties. They are able to block the estrogen receptors in our cells and reduce estrogen absorption rates. Thus, progesterone levels in women increase and testosterone levels in men.
