What are the health benefits of juicing spinach?

The health benefits of juicing spinach are many. Spinach is full of valuable vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. If you are not a big fan of the flavor of spinach you may be surprised to know the flavor of spinach juice is not very strong or unpleasant. In addition, learning creative ways to blend spinach juice with other fruits and vegetables will not only improve the flavor, but it will add valuable vitamins, minerals as well as pack a powerful punch of nutritional value to your meals. Plus, let’s not forget the treasure of antioxidants in these wonderful concoctions.

Chlorophyll is another benefit of drinking spinach juice. Spinach contains approximately 300-600 milligrams of chlorophyll per ounce. Chlorophyll has been found to be beneficial in increasing oxygen intake in blood. It neutralizes free radicals and therefore aids in deterring some cancers.

Ideas and things to consider - The fact is, spinach may not be the first choice for many consumers, many do not like the taste of spinach. However, study after study proves that green leafy vegetables are an extremely valuable addition to our diets. Spinach juice is a great alternative. Consider the following ways to creatively add spinach juice to your daily meals.

Ideas for using spinach juice

  • smoothies
  • juice blends
  • sauces
  • gravies
  • soups

Minerals in spinach juice include magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and even calcium. Additional minerals in spinach are potassium, zinc, iodine, and copper.

So why are the minerals in spinach juice necessary? Let's take a look at the various benefits.

Phosphorous – Phosphorous is wonderful for supporting strong bones and teeth by aiding in the absorption and use of calcium in the body.

Iron - Iron is excellent for supporting blood health and directly aids in the prevention of anemia.

MagnesiumMagnesium is an important element in supporting muscle and nerve function. Magnesium also aids in maintaining healthy bone structure, keeps heart rhythm steady and supports the immune system. Magnesium is also known to promote normal blood pressure and regulate blood sugar levels.

Calcium – Spinach is a great way to add calcium to your meals. This is a wonderful alternative for those that have a dairy free diet. Calcium is a necessary component for maintaining and supporting strong bones and teeth.

Potassium - Potassium is essential for heart function, muscle contraction and supports digestive function. Did you know potassium is an electrolyte? Electrolytes are essential for normal cell and organ function.

Zinc - Zinc is vital in making insulin. Insulin is needed in regulating glucose levels in the blood. Zinc also assists in removing harmful toxins and promotes a healthy immune system.

What are the vitamins in spinach juice?

Vitamins in spinach include vitamin C, A, E, K, B1, B2, B6 and Folic Acid.

Let's take a look at why these vitamins are an important addition to your diet.

Vitamin C - important for tissue growth and repair. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can block damage of certain free radicals.

Vitamin A - maintains healthy cells, particularly those which make up the eye. It also assists in supporting a healthy mucous membrane. This is vital in helping these mucous structures fight infection.

Vitamin E - important in the formation of red blood cells. Vitamin E is also an antioxidant and protects our tissues from free-radical damage. It also assists in maintaining an overall healthy cell membrane.

Vitamin K - is a fat soluble vitamin. Vitamin K is essential in the effective process of blood clotting. Vitamin K aids in building strong bones and the prevention of heart disease.

B1, B2, B6 - are vital in converting foods to energy. B1 and B2 are thiamin, which aids in producing enzymes and energy. B6 is pyridoxine and is used by the body to break down protein and maintain the health of red blood cells.

Folic Acid - Folic Acid is part of the B complex set. It is necessary for cell growth and division. Folic aids in the prevention of anemia by aiding in the healthy production of red blood cells.

Weights and Measurements for Juicing Spinach

How much spinach do you need for juicing?

Approximately one pound of fresh spinach can produce just under 4 ounces of juice. Therefore, 1 pound of raw spinach gives you about 1/2 a cup of spinach juice.

I have created a measurement table below. These measurements are approximate and can vary based on the juice the spinach yields and the quality of your juicer.

Remember, low speeds are best when juicing spinach and other leafy vegetables.

Spinach needed for juicing

Fresh Raw Spinach
Juice Produced (approximate)
1 pound
1/2 cup
2 pounds
1 cup
3 pounds
1 1/2 cups
4 pounds
2 cups
Juicing spinach is easier and tastier when juiced with carrots and apples.

Tips for Juicing Spinach

Juicing spinach is easier if you follow these tips.

  • Ball up a handful of spinach before pushing it into your juicer's feeder.
  • Combine the spinach with a non leafy item such as a carrot or apple.
  • Adjust the juicer speed to low. This will assist the blades in effectively capturing the leaf and producing a greater yield of juice.

Spinach can be blended as a smoothie too!

      Nana, yes, you are correct. There is a difference between juicing and smoothies. Some consumers do not like the whole leaf in their smoothies so they juice the spinach first and mix it with other ingredients - just like you described. That is a great point, that juice enters the blood stream more quickly. Beets are great too! Thank you for sharing your approach to juicing and creating smoothies.

      Just wanted to say that there is a difference between juicing and a smoothie. Juicing goes right to the blood stream with little effort from the intestines. I smoothie for lunch with fruit, mostly berries and banana, a handful if greens and a protein powder. And juice the spinach, kale with carrots and apples in the evening. Might add a bit if ginger and beets but it makes the juice spicy. Breakfast I stick to oatmeal or boiled eggs with my green tea.

      Excellent article MO! I wish I liked spinach but I really don't EXCEPT in unhealthy spinach dip. But, more recently, when I am having a salad, I try to add spinach to the "not so healthy" lettuce that I like. Juicing seems like an excellent alternative to get all those benefits from spinach. Thanks for all the great info.

      The taste of spinach smoothies was a pleasant surprise for me. Juicing spinach with apples and carrots are a great combination, but if you'd like a smoothie you can add more fruits. I like adding blueberries and bananas. I have a spinach smoothie hub if you are interested. Thank you for your comment and for your consideration.

The spinach juice when prepared with apples and carrots is actually sweet and tasty. You can also blend it into smoothies with fruit and you won't even know it is there. Thanks for the compliment on the hub design and layout. :)

      biancaalice - I'm happy you came by Bianca. If you blend the fruit with a handful of spinach it will taste fine. Try it as a juice or as a smoothie. Either way, the benefits are undeniable.

      I like spinach too. Diogenes, when I cook the spinach I place the leaves on already hot olive oil and mix it around carefully, only for 2 to 3 minutes. On the other hand, if you are having the spinach rolled as a Burrito, then you can cook it more.

Do you know if the juice can be stored in the refrigerator and how long it will keep? I must try it in soup as the flavor would add to any main dish. Thanks for sharing.

      So glad to see this hub on Juicing spinach. It has to be one of the best vegetables to use when juicing (or eating for that matter) I eat spinach salads all the time. They taste better, a little dressing goes a long way and spinach compliments just about anything. Voted up and shared!

      I love Spinach Rice. I also like another popular Indian dish called 'Palak Paneer' made using spinach. I can also tolerate Spinach soup... but spinach in any other form...nay! Anyway, awesome Hub. Voted up and shared.

      I love spinach. It can be used in so many ways - I also use it in place of lettuce for sandwiches and wilted with vinegrette! You did your homework! I didn't know it was THAT good for me:)

      Good info. I grew up fearing spinach, I'm 30 now and it was fairly recent that I finally discovered the fact that it doesn't have much taste at all. Now I put it in my salads every time!

      I have an upcoming article this will compliment rather well - bookmarked so I can be sure to link over ;-)
