Fruits and Veggies for Better Health

Fruits and Veggies for Better Health

Studies indicate that vitamins C and E, as well as beta carotene, all found in certain fruits, vegetables and whole grains, may help decrease the risk of heart disease, cancer and improve health.  These vitamins, known as antioxidants, neutralize free radicals (oxygen molecules) in the body that may damage cell walls and contribute to the disease process.

Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits, cantaloupe, green pepper, tomatoes, cabbage and potatoes.  The greener or more yellow or orange a fruit or vegetable is the more beta carotene it has.  Vitamin E is found in vegetable oils, wheat germ, nuts, olives and seeds.

More fruits and veggies in your diet = better health!
