Dips And Salads That Make You Enjoy Raw Food More

Dips and salads are healthy

With dips, the salads taste delicious. Salad is low in calories. And you can prepare it in thousands of variations. The days when the salad was considered rabbit food are slowly but surely over.

The long-held assumption that nutrients from salad cannot be used so well has not been confirmed either. On the contrary: Studies show that lettuce and vegetable salads are extremely suitable for raising the level of vital substances in human blood.

Salad and raw vegetables ensure the vitamin supply

Every serving of salad consumed increases the likelihood of meeting the recommended daily vitamin C requirement by 165 percent for women and 119 percent for men.

What seems to be less known is that vitamin C has many other abilities and functions in the organism. For example, it is necessary to be able to absorb iron. Without vitamin C one can therefore suffer from an iron deficiency very well, even if one would consume large amounts of iron.

Salad is also an excellent source of vitamin E. Did you know that vitamin E and vitamin C work closely together? Both vitamins also function as antioxidants and therefore protect our organism from attacks by free radicals.

Salads are also an excellent source of folic acid. Folic acid is one of the B vitamins, works with blood formation, and together with other vitamins, it can prevent atherosclerosis.

Consuming salads and raw vegetables is, therefore, an effective strategy to increase the intake of important nutrients, unfortunately, however, daily salad is not a matter of course for many people.
