According to a new study, eating more green vegetables may be beneficial to your heart. Researchers found that eating nitrate-rich vegetables (like spinach and broccoli) reduces the production of a hormone called erythropoietin that regulates red blood cell production in the body. The team claims the result is thinner blood without a compromise in oxygen levels, which may help prevent blood clots and reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack.
