Plant nutrients are essential to good health. To be as healthy as you can, you should eat every color of fruit and vegetable every day, because each color contains different plant nutrients, or phytonutrients, which act as antioxidants to protect your cells and also have specific health benefits. Most people, however, find it difficult to attain the recommended goal of 9–13 daily servings.
Fortunately, the healthful plant-nutrient compounds that make fruits and vegetables so colorful are plentiful in NUTRILITE® supplements. You can trust NUTRILITE vitamins, minerals and supplements to fill in your daily nutritional gaps as you "color yourself healthy."
To keep your heart healthy, you should eat every color of fruit and vegetable every day. Especially if you’re one of the estimated 230 million people around the world whose lifestyle choices result in smoking or carrying excess weight. Those lifestyle factors make focusing on heart health even more crucial. So it’s even more important to eat a lot of different fruits and vegetables.
The foods you eat need to support healthy brain functions. By eating fruits and vegetables of every color, you are providing your brain with nutrients that promote healthy cognitive functioning and improve both short- and long-term memory. For example, grapes contain resveratrol, which improves memory.
Nutrients that maintain strong, healthy bones build a stronger, healthier you. The bones you have today have to support your body for your entire life. By eating fruits and vegetables from each color, you are providing your body with nutrients that promote healthy bone cell growth and increase calcium absorption. Asparagus and artichokes, for example contain inulin which has been shown to promote calcium absorption for strong bones.
Healthy joints are necessary to live an active lifestyle. By eating fruits and vegetables from each color, you are providing your joints with nutrients that promote strong joint structure. For example, tangerines and oranges contain vitamin C, which has been shown to improve the absorption of calcium, an important nutrient for healthy joint function.
To keep your immune system at its peak, eat every color of fruit and vegetable every day. That’s because eating fruits and vegetables from each color gives you nutrients that help protect your cells and keep your immune system healthy.
One of the best ways to ensure you have the energy needed to make it through your busy day is to eat every color of fruit and vegetable every day. That’s because eating fruits and vegetables from each color gives you the nutrients for optimal energy production. Kidney beans, for example, are a red color food and contain fiber to support healthy blood sugar levels.
To keep your vision clear, you need to take good care of your eyes. By eating fruits and vegetables of every color, you are providing your eyes with nutrients that help maintain healthy eye tissue and enhance sun protection. Yellow peppers and cantaloupes, like other yellow- and orange-colored foods, contain beta carotene which is crucial for maintaining healthy eye tissue and preventing free radical damage.
