Why is it a big deal? Anti-aging is the big deal. It sounds simple to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables but in practice is it?
The World Health Organization has affirmed that a lack of fruit and vegetable intake is a primary force in driving the worldwide chronic disease epidemic. Data collected from 10 years of study by the National Fruit and Vegetable Alliance, a government action team lead by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Cancer Institute shows that 96% of Americans do not get enough fruit and vegetable nutrition each day. More than 9 out of 10 children today fail to get sufficient fruits and vegetables.
Health authority recommendations call for at least 5, and up to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables each and every day. Wow! That’s a lot of food and a lot of preparation time – especially for active, working families. In addition to that not everyone likes the variety of fruits and vegetables that our bodies need each day – especially our kids! The anti-aging process needs to start young.
A variety of fruits and vegetables help reduce the risk of developing a wide range of anti-aging common diseases such as macular degeneration, cancer, weak immune system, heart disease, cataracts, nerve problems, mental problems, weak bones, hormonal related problems, diabetes, etc.
When shopping for fruits and vegetables, look for those that have color in the flesh. They are the richest in carotenoids, flavonoids, and cruciferous properties. Most are better consumed raw, lightly steamed, lightly stir-fried or roasted in olive oil.
Carotenoids and flavonoids are the best sources of antioxidants which reduce oxidation of the body thus slowing the risk of heart disease and cancer.
Carotenoid rich fruits and vegetables are those that easily oxidize when the flesh is cut and exposed to the air so they must be consumed fresh or protected against oxidization until consumed. Foods with flesh colors of red, yellow, orange, and deep green such as carrots, tomatoes, spinach, red bell peppers, peaches, strawberries, and apricots are rich in carotenoids. Carotenoids especially protect against eye diseases, cancer, sun burn, heart disease, nerve and mental problems. They also boost your immune system to help fight disease and stay healthy.
Flavonoid rich fruits and vegetables are those with flesh of purple, blue, and deep reds as well as citrus. Some flavonoid rich fruits and vegetables are beets, black grapes, cranberries, elderberries, grapefruit, kale, lemons, oranges, and red grapes. Flavonoids particularly support heart health, reduce the risk of breast and stomach cancers, promote normal healthy cellular tissue, and ease inflammation associated with overuse of joints.
Cruciferous rich fruits and vegetables are foods such as black mustard, broccoli, brown mustard, kale, licorice root, oranges, radishes, soybeans, and watercress. Cruciferous rich foods support healthy cellular growth and renewal especially in breast and prostate tissue, support healthy hormonal activity, and have the ability to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and neutralize toxins.
Super Fruits such as pomegranates, red and white grapes, and deep dark berries—blueberry, elderberry, bilberry, cranberry, black currant are rich in a special group of nutrients called polyphenols. Polyphenols play a wide range of critical roles in supporting and maintaining optimal health, longevity, and cognitive/mental capacity throughout life. Research tells us that when these polyphenols are absent from or deficient in our diets, aging processes are accelerated and disease risk is higher. When they are abundant in the diet, aging is slowed and disease risk is lowered. Inflammation and oxidation, leading causes of heart disease, cancer, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and fibromylagia can be reduced by consumption of these super fruits.
So tell me how many servings of super fruits, carotenoid, flavonoid, and cruciferous rich fruits and vegetables did you have yesterday? …. And the day before yesterday? …. And the day before that?
