Are The Foods You Eat Enough Vitamins And Minerals For Your Body?

On 51/100:2

Many organizations such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the World Health Organization, the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, and the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion all agree and stress that you should eat up to 10 total servings of fruits and vegetables a day, which is a lot of food!

Assuming that you enjoy the taste of vegetables, fruits and greens, you have to find the time to shop 2-3 times a week in order to buy the freshest vegetables, fruits and greens possible. Also the preparation of the food, such as washing, peeling, chopping, broiling, steaming, etc. can be a real chore.

Providing your body with convenient concentrated nutrients from actual whole foods grown out of the earth rather than nutrients engineered in a lab is easy. So why mess with Mother Nature and try to fool the body with synthetic vitamin pills?

Synthetic alternatives which are in the form of vitamins and minerals known as isolates are absorbed in the body in small percentages. Since your body knows what to do with the true form, provide it with the natural form of vitamins and minerals. That’s why we created VGF 25+.

The concentrates of 25 Vegetables, Greens and Fruits found in VGF 25+ are nutrient rich and are developed from Nature’s own whole foods. Whole foods are more easily absorbed and used by your body than a synthetic blend.

More about all seven essential nutrient classes contained in VGF 25+ is included later in this report.

Read on to see just a few of the benefits from some of these natural food sources.

Barley Grass: A powerful antioxidant that protects the cells against toxic free radicals is the enzyme SOD (superoxide dismutase). Barley grass contains one of the highest levels of SOD. Barley grass also has 30 times more Vitamin B1 and 11 times the amount of calcium than there is in cow’s milk, 6.5 times as much carotene, close to 5 times the iron content in spinach, and nearly 7 times the vitamin C that is in oranges.

Wheat Grass: Has as much magnesium as broccoli, beets and carrots, contains over eighty different minerals and is high in fiber. Magnesium is essential for muscle contraction and bowel health.

Brussels Sprouts: Sulforphane is one of the glucosinolate phytonutrients found in Brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables. Sulforphane boosts the body’s detoxification enzymes, therefore more quickly helps to clear potentially carcinogenic substances. This and other plant phytonutrients found in Brussels Sprouts enhance the activity of the body’s natural defense systems and protect against disease, including cancer.

A healthier urinary tract system, healthy cholesterol levels and support for your brain and immune systems are other benefits from the 25+ whole foods.

To benefit from the individual properties of these wonderful fruits and vegetables each and every day, you should include plenty of these in your diet. However, it is unrealistic and very difficult to expect to eat such a wide variety of them on a daily basis.

That’s why it is important to make sure you are not missing out on any of these powerful nutrients and benefits. Taking a whole food based multi vitamin may be the best you can do to consume these fruits and vegetables.

Building the base of your nutritional foundation as strong as possible is important so that your body can defend anything that comes against you. It is what I call completing your nutritional foundation.

Are you eating enough fruits and vegetables to build that solid nutritional foundation? If not then check out Whole Food Vitamins.
