Vegetable rich in calcium is 36 times more than bone soup, delicious when eaten raw or cooked, readily available in Vietnam

One of the types of vegetables that is often compared to a "calcium powerhouse" is spinach.


Not only animal bones, but also green vegetables are a natural source of calcium that is very good for the body. One of the types of vegetables that is known as a “calcium treasure” is water spinach.

It is estimated that every 100g of this vegetable provides more than 70mg of free calcium. Meanwhile, 100ml of bone broth only supplies 1.9mg of this substance.

According to experts’ explanations, most people mistakenly believe that pork bones are rich in calcium, but in reality, calcium in bones exists in a form that is difficult to dissolve in water.

Therefore, no matter how long you simmer the bones, the calcium in the bone broth is still not as high as we usually think.

In addition to being rich in calcium, water spinach also contains nutrients such as vitamin A, B1, B2, and many minerals that are good for health such as iron, protein, and various trace elements.

Because of its nutritional “wealth”, this vegetable brings many health benefits.

You can use water spinach to cook various dishes, whether raw or cooked, it is very nutritious. Many people use this vegetable as a raw salad, some use it as a filling for dumplings and steamed dumplings, while others like to cook soup or stir-fry it with minced garlic…

Depending on each person’s preference, choose the appropriate cooking method.

Furthermore, cowpea is also a vegetable rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and potassium. Among them, the notable thing is that the calcium content in this vegetable is much higher than in milk and soybeans, about 3 times higher than milk and 2 times higher than soybeans.

This makes cowpea an ideal food to maintain bone health in middle-aged and older adults.

In addition to its abundant calcium content, this vegetable is also rich in fiber, which helps improve digestion and weight control.

Furthermore, this vegetable also contains antioxidants that help protect the body from the harm of free radicals and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
