Benefits of eating Vegetables

• Vegetables are great sources of minerals and vitamins necessary for the proper functioning of the body. They contain calcium, iron and pro-vitamin A which are all necessary for healthy growth and development. 

• They reduce the risk of heart disease.

• They help to prevent being overweight (They contain virtually no fat and their caloric content is very low). They produce a sensation of being full that substantially relieves feelings of hunger.

• The fibre content of vegetables increases the volume of faecal matter and facilitates its passage through the digestive tract thereby preventing constipation.• They increase urine production and reduce arterial blood pressure because of their potassium content.

• They contain phyto-chemicals which have preventive powers against cancer and arteriosclerosis.

• Fruits and vegetables also contain proteins apart from vitamins and minerals.
