Why salad really worx!
There are many proven health benefits derived from eating salad leaves. Our salad leaves are fresher than many you can buy elsewhere, the health benefits therefore tend to be greater. Vitamin C levels for example, drop significantly after just a few days following the harvest.
saladworx salad leaves contain:
vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, folate which is one of the B vitamins, dietary fibre, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc and omega 3. A 100g portion of salad leaves provides a large percentage of the RDA, the recommended daily allowance.
Darker green leaves tend to contain more nutrients.
Because our salad, herb and flower product is a mixture of colours, you are assured of a quick and easy way to reach the 5 a day and make a significant contribution to the recommended daily allowance of many essential vitamins and minerals.
Herbs have been prized since ancient times and have for a long time had an important place in our wellness. The addition of herbs in our salad mix add extra vitamins together with minerals such as potassium, manganese and selenium and also add important essential oils. The chemical constituents of herbs have anti-inflamatory, anti-bacterial, digestive and calming properties, amongst many others. Herbs are medicines in smaller doses. They taste good too!
Edible flowers were known to have been eaten by the Romans and even before that. They are 95% water, and so virtually calorie free. They are a visual delight, come in so many colours and shapes, have a pleasing aroma a delightful taste and have medicinal and nutritional qualities. They are rich in nectar and pollen and have anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties.

There are health benefits to adding a little dressing to your salad!
Vitamin K is fat soluble which means that a little oil or dressing increases the bodies ability to absorb the vitamin. Carotinoids too, are best absorbed by the body when eaten with a little oil.
