Bok Choy

Are you a big salad person? If so, it's time that you consider replacing whatever lettuce you normally prepare your salad with and use bok choy instead.  Bok choy is a Chinese form of cabbage that offers a great taste and a number of health benefits so you'll definitely be doing yourself a big favor by adding this to your usual diet plan.

Let's take a look at some of the benefits bok choy will provide you with.

Boosts Immune Function

One of the two nutrients found in bok choy is vitamin A, which helps boost the immune system and keep you healthier on a daily basis.

In addition to that, vitamin A is also vital for good vision and proper growth. These are two additional benefits that you'll get from that nutrient.

Improves Bone Density

While many people think that getting enough calcium is key to maintaining healthy bones, that's not all you must be doing.  The truth is, vitamin K is also a nutrient that plays an important role in healthy bones. Vitamin K is the nutrient that increases the absorption of calcium in the body.

Bok choy is a great source of vitamin K. By pairing it with other foods high in calcium (such as a glass of milk), you will be providing top notch care for your skeletal system.

Helps Regulate Blood Pressure

Bok choy is also going to be a rich source of potassium, which is a vital mineral that's needed to maintain a healthy blood pressure level.

Low In Sodium

Finally, for those who are watching their sodium content, you can put your mind at ease when you choose to eat bok choy as your vegetable of choice.  This food is very low in sodium and since it does contain that powerful potassium punch, it will help to offset any of the sodium-rich foods that you are consuming.

So don't opt for regular lettuce again when preparing your next salad.  Change it up and add bok choy to the picture instead.
