Nutritionists around the world insist on adding to our diet five servings of fruits and vegetables in a daily basis. It is widely known that daily consumption of fruits and vegetables helps reduce the risk of many diseases (heart disease, cancer), as they strengthen our body with all the necessary vitamins and trace elements, offering us a better quality of life.
Why eat fruits and vegetables:
– They have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action.
– They reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.
– They help us have a better bowel function.
– They help us maintain our weight stable.
It is important to make clear that vitamin and mineral supplements do not contain the phytochemical or plant properties of fruits and vegetables, so they do not have the same health effects.
