We always hear about how Mother Nature and natural foods can help your body do all sorts of things: lose weight, get more energy, etc. Well, here are foods that can actually save your life. Seriously.
Why it’s life saving: Arugula has one of the highest nitrate levels of any leafy green, helping to increase blood flow and therefore enhance performance. It’s also packed with flavonoids — antioxidants that fight heart disease and even some cancers. New research suggests it may also prevent ulcers.
How to eat it: Arugula can be slightly bitter, so dress it in a salad with a fruity vinaigrette to counter the bite.
