How does Spinach work?

Spinach contains vitamins and other nutrients.

Spinach is safe during pregnancy and breast-feeding when used in food amounts, but the safety of spinach supplements in pills is not known.

Do not give spinach to infants less than four months old. It can sometimes cause a blood disorder in young infants.

Do not use spinach if:
