Well, there are some things in the world which we already know, and despite them being useful to use, we do not apply them in our real life. One such thing is the consumption of healthy food; everyone knows that our top priority should be fewer calories and fewer cholesterol foods but despite this, the sales of fast food are increasing every year and there seems to be no stopping it. Another instance can be smoking cigarettes, on the front of the packet itself the warning signal is mentioned that smoking cigarettes lead to cancer, still, smokers drink packets of it in a day.
So, one can see that what is unhealthy is most attractive to men. But the situation can improve if men give emphasis on leafy vegetables from now on. A common consensus is always present that leafy vegetables are healthy but very few usually eat them. This habit must be changed for good, and it is important to spread awareness among men of the health benefits of leafy vegetables.
Good for weight management
Obesity is a major health concern nowadays, gone are the days when you could just overlook overweight because it is even causing heart attacks in current times. When more than 30 per cent of the youngsters below 30 are obese in a developed nation like the US, it indicates that the problem is real. With increased weight, the whole productivity of the man decreases. For example, now for climbing the same number of stairs, you would take more time, and you get exhausted and panting quickly without any intense physical workout.
The joint bones start causing the pain because now they have to support heavier fats. Such men over time also develop weak bones. This can be corrected if you replace those fats with leafy vegetables. Most parts of the vegetables are leaf which is actually fibre with zero fats and cholesterol. Thus, you may eat a lot of such vegetables and still be healthy as it hasn’t added many calories. So, your stomach is full but you have added negligible calories, what’s better than that. For the same reason, men looking to lose some weight must consider leafy vegetables in their diet at least 2 times a day.
Healthy for gut
Leafy vegetables apart from managing your weight, are good for keeping your gut healthy. Due to high cholesterol food consumption breaking them down becomes difficult and it is one of the reasons men today are suffering from constipation. You cannot clear your bowel by consuming things filled with fats and sugars. In fact, bad cholesterol is one such ingredient that does not even break down by any of the digestive enzymes.
Leafy vegetables, on the other hand, are the direct opposite, they contain a lot of insoluble fibre. Even fibre is not given digestible by the human gut but is specifically helpful for easing bowels. This is because fibre adds moisture to the stool which leads to a smooth exit from the anus. This is why doctors advise constipated patients or even normal men to consume a lot of fibre. And what is more fibrous than leafy vegetables.
If you are feeling low in energy without any disorder, this indicates that your metabolism is very low. This is not a disorder but a usual situation that leads to dizziness, less concentration, daytime sleepiness, depression, mood swings, insomnia and many others if not solved in time. Leafy vegetables are enriched with a variety of vitamins and minerals like Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, magnesium etc.
The vitamins and minerals enhance efficiency by boosting blood pressure, improving coordination between the brain and organs by the better transmission of neurotransmitters. Thus, memorising power increases along with creative thinking. So, leafy vegetables are not just for diseases men but also for maintaining regular health.
COVID-19 has taught us many lessons and one awareness it incited in all of us is to keep our immunity always high. Men try various methods like consuming immunity-boosting pills, powder and even injections. These methods are risky and have the danger of side effects. Why go for these methods if just eating two- or three-times leafy vegetables can make that happen? Leafy vegetables enhance the metabolism of the body, making the organs more efficient. Hence, it is very likely that the body will be more than ready to fight against upcoming infections and allergies.
Thus, boosting immunity indirectly. But in mind that you start adding it to your diet gradually if you are new to leafy vegetables. Otherwise, indigestion and acidity may prevail.
