Leafy Green Vegetables May Boost Your Heart Health
A new study published in The Journal of Nutrition finds that leafy green vegetables such as kale, parsley, broccoli, and spinach, having high contents of vitamin K, may significantly contribute to heart health.
The new study suggests that insufficient levels of vitamin K may affect the structure of the heart, leading to left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH).
