The Leek is a staple British vegetable that is both tasty and nutritious, having many health benefits including maintaining a healthy heart and circulation plus generally boosting the immune system.
Leeks are full of antioxidant agents such as flavanoids which are most concentrated in the bulb and leaves adjoining it. Extremely rich in kaempferol, a flavanol that produces Nitric Oxide(NO) that dilates and relaxes blood vessels and protects them from damage.
Another very important nutrient found in leeks is folate, helpful for a healthy cardiovascular system. These also comprise nutrients and minerals like Vitamin A, C, E, K, potassium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium along with anti-inflammatory properties.
