In folk wisdom plants have long been regarded for their medicinal and protective properties; they‘ve shown evidence of sustaining resistance to disease.  These green foods are now known to have nature’s health supporting substances called phytochemicals. 

 

“Phtyo” comes from the Greek word for “plant.”

 

Phytochemicals by strict definition are chemicals produced by plants.  They’re natural molecules produced to protect plant cells.

"These phytochemicals not only protect the plant itself from solar radiation or insect invasion, but consumption of these chemicals by humans has shown to keep cells in the body healthy and stable in many ways."

Phytochemicals Support Human Health

 

When oxygen is metabolized in your body, it can be converted to a highly charged form, a free radical.  Free radicals will react with neighboring molecules, causing damage.  Antioxidants act as free radical scavengers, defusing free radical damage, thus reducing wear and tear on your body. 

“Just a few years ago, scientists didn’t know phytochemicals existed…  In the world where science merges with health, phytochemicals are the next big thing.  The National Cancer Institute is so excited, it has launched a multi-million dollar project to find, isolate and study them.  Private firms are eyeing them as a health blockbuster.  For among their most intriguing talents is an apparent ability to block the multiple processes that lead to cancer…”

                                    -Newsweek Magazine, April 25, 1994

 

Up to date over 4,000 of these plant substances
have been identified and about 150
have been studied in detail.

 

Fruits and vegetables are packed with naturally occurring plant chemicals.  The more fruits and vegetables you eat, the more of these natural compounds your body will have available to boost a strong effective immune system.

 

Fruits and vegetables are associated with the prevention and/or treatment of at least four of the leading causes of death in the United States:

  • Cancer

  • Diabetes

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • Hypertension

-Bloch, A. et al. 1995. Position of American Dietetic Association: Phytochemicals and functional foods. JADA. 95:493-496

 

“Medical research into these powerful plant extracts is uncovering a wealth of health benefits, including the reduction of the risk of cancer, arthritis, heart disease, and other conditions that rob us of quality of life and lead to premature aging and death.”

                      -Carol Ebnother, M.D.

 

According to the American Cancer Society- "eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day as part of a healthy diet can help reduce your risk of cancer."

 

A recent discovery concerns the importance of phytochemicals that are found in vine-ripened fruits and vegetables but are not found in those that are not vine-ripened.

 

Today, in the U.S., produce is picked green for long distance transport to cities.  This “green harvest” is the primary reason for low phytochemical content in fruits and vegetables.

“The biological signal for a plant to synthesize initial micronutrient molecules is maturation of the fruit, vegetable and seed.  When fruits and vegetables are picked green, it is before the micronutrient molecules are present.”

-Journal of the National Academy for Child Development: The Role of Phytochemicals in Optimal Health, 1997 Vol. 11, No. 1

That basically means fruits and vegetables picked before ripening have less, if any, of the phytochemicals needed to strengthen your immune system.

 

In the U.S., most adults and children don’t even come close to the minimum recommended daily servings of 2-4 fruits and 3-5 vegetables.  And if you’re getting your fruits and vegetables from the market, more than likely you aren’t getting an adequate dose of maturely present phytochemicals.  

 

Is Something Missing?

“When phytochemicals are added to the diet, the capacity of human genes to protect and restore optimal health is far greater than previously recognized.”

-Journal of the National Academy for Child Development: The Role of  Phytochemicals in Optimal Health, 1997 Vol. 11, No. 1

“Studies are showing that as we drift from the diets of our ancestors, we succumb to modern diseases (auto-immune disorders).  Centenarian tribes are clear evidence of this.  These societies live in remote villages in the Andes Mountains.  They have not lost grasp to traditional dietary practices.  They have been reported to live extraordinarily long lives free of illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, and arthritis.       

                  -Phytochemicals: Nutrients of the Future, Marcia Zimmerman C.N.

Are you getting your daily dose of phytochemicals? 

New processing techniques allow manufacturers to soften, dehydrate, and flash-freeze dry raw fruits and vegetables.  These techniques protect the vital components of the “whole food,” including precious phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

 

Feed Your Natural Defense System Daily! With a dozen fully ripened raw
fruits and vegetables.

 

You can now get the support and help to maintain good health by nutritionally supplementing a flash-freeze dried blend of whole food components. A Phytochemical Complex has been developed that includes:

  • Broccoli

  • Brussels sprout

  • Cabbage

  • Carrot

  • Cauliflower

  • Garlic

  • Kale

  • Onion

  • Tomato

  • Turnip

  • Papaya

  • Pineapple 

These are important nutrients in addition to your daily servings of fruits and vegetables.  A significant assortment of plant nutrients your body can readily have available to support a strong effective immune system.

A strong effective immune system helps the body:

  • Build resistance to diseases

  • Recover when ill or run down

  • Support other bodily functions

Nutrition experts, medical advisors and leading health organizations routinely recommend 5 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables every day.  These are minimum recommendations that we should all try to follow.  The more phytonutrients you consume, the more support your immune system will have for a stronger and healthier you. 

 

Phytochemicals for Optimal Health

"With a greater understanding of biochemistry and human physiology, phytochemicals could well drive the food and supplements industry forward through the 21st century."

-Phytochemicals: Nutrients Whose Time Has Come
by Marcia Zimmerman, C.N.

 

Nutritional supplements are designed to improve nutrition rather than treat disease or substitute for a doctor’s care or proven therapy.  Everyone, regardless of state of health, can benefit from improved nutrition.

 

Learn more about phytochemical nutrients called phytosterols and phytoestrogens which help regulate hormones, fat metabolism, mental alertness, stress, and suport your immune system.
