Calcium and iron are well known in helping us guard against cancer and fight aging. But don't totally depend on spinach for calcium and iron cause it contains a chemical called oxalic acid which binds with iron and calcium and thus reduces the absorption of these minerals.

If you want your body to absorb minerals more efficiently then Eat spinach with vitamin C foods such as tomatoes or any citrus fruit which works really great.
