Silverbeet, High In Health Benefits

Silverbeet (Beta vulgaris), also called chard, is thought to have originated in the Mediterranean area and it’s use goes back to Roman and Greek times.
It’s winter where I live and the image above is from our garden where there is plenty of this vegetable growing to supplement soups, salads, and pretty well any meal we have.
It’s nutritive value can’t be emphasised enough, the rich green leaves contain an abundance of minerals such as copper, calcium, sodium, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. 
Silverbeet is also a rich source of vitamin-C, vitamin-K and vitamin-A .
It is also plentiful in the B-complex group of vitamins such as folates, niacin, vitamin B-6, thiamin and pantothenic acid.
In all, silverbeet is a tonic plant, easy to grow and full of goodness for the body and mind.
