Q: Why is it important to get 7 daily servings of fruits and vegetables?
Fruits and vegetables provide a wealth of nutrients - healthy carbohydrates to
provide energy for the body, plus vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C and
potassium the body needs every day for good health. To get the most health
benefit, current recommendations are that individuals get five to nine
servings a day of fruits and vegetables. But with our busy lifestyles and eating
on the run, many people donít often get all the fruit and vegetable servings
Q: Is that where Garden 7 dietary supplement comes in?
Exactly. Garden 7 was designed to help bridge the nutritional gap for those
of us who donít eat enough fruits and vegetables in our daily diet. It
provides a combination of key plant-based nutrients equivalent to the
phytonutrients in seven servings of fruits and vegetables.
Garden 7 tablets
donít replace the need for fruits and vegetables; rather, they supplement
them to help ensure weíre receiving the daily benefits of all the natural,
colorful phytonutrients for good overall health.
Q: What does the term ďphytonutrientĒ mean?
Phytonutrients are Ďplant-based nutrientsí - substances in plant foods that
are not vitamins or minerals, but which have important health benefits.
Many phytonutrients provide plants with their beautiful colors. Fruits and
vegetables can be classified into seven distinct color groups, based on
the predominant phytonutrient in them. For example, lycopene is a
phytonutrient that provides the red color to tomatoes and watermelon and
the pink color to grapefruit. While strawberries are also red, their color
comes from a different phytonutrient, a pigment common in other berries
like cranberry. So itís not enough just to eat five to nine servings of fruits and
vegetables daily. Itís also important to eat a broad range of fruits and
vegetables to get the benefits of all seven color groups.
