The Star Ingredient: Spinach

Why Spinach Rocks!


Spinach can help with anxiety in both littles and grownups because it's a leafy green that's rich in magnesium and folate:

  • Magnesium: Research suggests that magnesium supplementation can help with mild anxiety symptoms. Mice studies have shown a link between magnesium and anxiety, and diets low in magnesium have been linked to increased anxiety-related behaviors.

  • Folate: Folate helps the body produce dopamine, a brain chemical that can make people feel calm and happy.


Plus, it’s a super versatile ingredient that can be added to almost any dish, including our favorite — pizza!
