|What exactly are
Phytonutrients are nonnutritive
plant chemicals that contain protective, disease-preventing compounds.
More than 900 different phytochemicals have been identified as
components of food, and many more phytochemicals continue to be
They are beneficial chemical compounds naturally found in plant
foods (phyto means "plant"
in Greek). They are not vitamins or minerals, but a different class of
biologically active substances. Phytonutrients,
is an umbrella term which covers a multitude of different active
found in various plant foods. Shown in clinical studies to support the
body's immune system function as well as protect against cellular
oxidative damage from free radical formation, phytonutrients
are proving to be powerful antioxidants.
When you consider that the immune system, accompanied by the action of
your natural defenses, is the body's first line of attack against
disease, doesn't it make sense to support it the way nature intended?
And there is no doubt we need maximum protection when we look at the
number of health offending circumstances we are exposed to - from the
food we eat to pollution and numerous other toxins. All this, and us not
eating our veggies! Let's face it - the majority of people do not eat
the recommended 5-6 servings of fruits and vegetables each day (only
9% of the population does!),
making supplementation a viable option we cannot afford to ignore.
I must say even if you are one that gets the recommended 5-6 servings a
day, you are still not getting all the nutrients your body needs, due to
the fact those fruits and vegetables come from a depleted soil that is
not rich in nutrients!
By harnessing the power of phytonutrients
from plants, we can optimize our health in a way that complements
vitamin and mineral function in the pursuit of prevention!
As early as 1980, the National Cancer
Institute Chemoprevention Program of the Division of Cancer
Prevention and Control began evaluating phytonutrients for
safety, efficacy, and applicability for preventing and treating
diseases. Researchers have long known that there are phytonutrients
present for protection in plants, but it has only been recently that
they are being recommended for protection against human disease.
