If you want to know where the REAL medicine is, let me introduce you to the phytonutrient. Also called phytochemicals, these are plant-derived compounds (“phyto” means “plant”) that have a lot of amazing properties. These include:
- The ability to remove free radicals in the body;
- Stopping inflammation in the vessels and organs;
- Improving the power of the cells in the immune system;
- Eliminating the oxidative damage in cells, and
- Deactivating cancer causing agents.
In short, Phytonutrients are why your mother always told you to eat your vegetables!
