We’ve all heard that fruits and vegetables are good for us. But why is that?
Fruits and veggies provide our bodies with a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals. But beyond that, fruits and veggies are rich in plant chemicals called phytonutrients or phytochemicals. These plant chemicals (phyto=plant… get it?) give fruits and veggies their vibrant colours, tastes and textures. Phytonutrients also provide antioxidant protection to fruits and veggies, and when we eat foods rich in phytonutrients, that antioxidant protection extends to us.
The study of phytonutrients is a little more complex than the vitamins and minerals that we know. We all know of Vitamins A, C and E, for example. But phytonutrients are a little more complex. As of 2016, nutritional research has identified nearly 25,000 phytonutrients – some of which you may have heard of, like carotenoids (which give carrots and sweet potatoes their orange colour), chlorophyll (which makes greens, well, green) and polyphenols (which includes berries, cocoa and tea).
What nutritional research knows is that eating a wide variety of colourful fruits and vegetables will provide your body with phytonutrients that it needs. And the best way to get them? Through whole foods and a whole food supplement like greens+!
How do the phytonutrients in greens+ stack up against foods, and other green food supplements?
We put greens+ to the test with a professional, third-party lab to find out just how powerful the formula’s phytonutrient content was – here are the amazing results!
Not only that, all of these fantastic phytonutrients are active in your body, having been proven to elevate blood antioxidant status. Combined with the proven pH balancing and energy boosting elements abilities of the formula, this one of a kind phytonutrient formula protects and balances your body, and most importantly, makes you feel amazing!
