8. Swiss Chard

Chard (Beta vulgaris subsp. cicla), is a leafy green vegetable and the word “Swiss” was used to distinguish chard from French spinach varieties by the 19th century seed catalogue publishers. A leafy green vegetable indeed, it is a rich source of Vitamin K and protects you from Alzheimer’s disease.

All parts of the chard plant contain oxalic acid and if you’re wondering just what oxalic acid is, here comes a quick explanation: Oxalic acid is an organic compound with the formula H2C2O4 that’s pretty toxic when consumed in large quantities, so moderation is the key here.

The same way a lot of certain medicine can make you sick and the right amount healthy. Vegetables can keep us healthy in several ways and can also aid in weight loss. Include the vegetables we have discussed in your daily diet and see the results yourself. There’s no magic or one miraculous plant that’s going to help you fight diseases and infections, it’s the healthy attitude that keeps doctors at bay.
