Did found in citrus fruits this flavonoid works as an antioxidant reducing inflammation in the body to help prevent chronic disease Flava dolls or sitting at the well studied type of Flav now it is found in apples berries tail onions it might help reduce people's risk of asthma certain types of cancer and coronary heart disease found in
00:03:57grapes purple grape juice red wine it acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory some research suggests that Risperdal might play a role in reducing the risk of heart disease and certain Cancers and it may help extend Life Animal Studies have shown but more human studies are needed to establish a clear relationship glucosinolates are found in cruciferous vegetables including brussels sprouts cabbage kale broccoli they give these vegetables there sharp odor and flavor the glucosinolates turn into other chemicals during the cooking process and while you digest these Foods these chemicals may help hold and check the development and growth of cancer phytoestrogens because of their structure phytoestrogens can exert Eastridge in like effects
00:04:57they can also block the effects of your natural supply of Eastridge and soy foods contain isoflavone the type of phytoestrogen some evidence suggests that soy Foods may be linked to lower risk of endometrial cancer lower risk of bone loss in women your body converts lignans another type of phytonutrients into chemicals with some Eastridge in like effects she was especially good sources of Linden are flash seeds sesame seeds however research supporting role for ligaments in preventing endometrial cancer or osteoporosis is limited plants contain more than 100,000 phytonutrients one of the reasons nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day are recommended some phytonutrients are fat soluble and thus need fat to be properly absorbed certain
00:05:57Fido nutrients are also better absorbed from cooked rather than raw food phytonutrients May and Pardo count for the benefits of whole plant Foods in cancer prevention dates berries strawberries coffee Earl Grey tea chai tea and green tea are high in vitamin D3 and milk and soy milk however May block the absorption of phytonutrients variety in the diet appears to boost the effectiveness of phytonutrients do two nutrients energy and also because different plants and vegetables have different phytonutrients a healthy eating index has even been created based on phytochemical consumption phytonutrients when he literally bathe our systems as evidenced by garlic breath and pink urine from eating beets which are packed with
00:06:54bio nutrients on average plant foods have 64 times more antioxidants than animal foods and when it comes to antioxidants the more we eat the more we may benefit boiling and pressure cooking reduce the antioxidant content of foods more than any other method antioxidants also appear to increase skill size which has been associated with a lower cancer risk and protect nose and face the enzyme that produces the artery relaxing signal nitric oxide eating a diet high in antioxidants appears to reduce inflammation in the body beats followed by red bell peppers have been found to have the highest cellular antioxidant levels of vegetables other foods high in antioxidants include dragon's blood Indian gooseberries triphala although lead contamination makes it
00:07:54bad choice dry peppermint and cloves dried pomegranate seeds dried apple rings blackberries cranberries cold steep tea I dared Apples Crab Apples dandelion tea red rice and carrots kale juice has also been found to be high in phytonutrients and eating kale especially cooked Mader's Tower immune system interesting ly tomato juice seems to have greater phyto nutrient availability than eating the actual tomato phytonutrients like lycopene in tomatoes appears to be protective against heart disease the phytonutrients in to kill appear to be helpful in relieving the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome in terms of phytonutrients content cocoa powder is the healthiest form of chocolate phytochemicals found in fruit and vegetable juices may have a protective
00:08:54effect against Health timers purple grape juice rank the highest in terms of protection against Alzheimer's due to the presence of high levels of phenolic vital nutrients and when it comes to attractiveness a Rosy Glow to the skin has been found to be preferred phytonutrients especially Crow toys found in kale for example have been found to increase attractiveness but taking them in pill form does not appear to work the risk of glaucoma the second leading cause of blindness appears to be dramatically reduced by kale or collard greens consumption thanks to the phytonutrient pigments lutein and zeaxanthin booty in and take something have also been shown to be beneficial in protecting against cataracts and macular degeneration carrots collard greens and kale are high in these phytonutrients but again
00:09:54taking them in pill form does not appear to work the phytonutrients and flax seeds assist our body in the formation of lymph nodes which are essential to healthy gut Flora the phytonutrients sulforaphane found in broccoli has been Associated fault with lowering breast cancer risk as well as improving survival rates vital nutrients in broccoli may also decrease the medaesthetic potential of lung cancer the phytonutrients in raw broccoli may help bladder cancer survival sulforaphane is more readily available in raw broccoli sulforaphane is also the most powerful National inducer of our livers detoxifying enzyme system growing your own broccoli Sprouts is probably the most nutrition you can get for your money 100 cups of broccoli day is the safe upper limit for consumption broccoli also appears to protect against DNA damage
00:10:54smokers vitamin C found most concentrated in fruits and vegetables blocks carcinogenic Nitro Sammy and production and our systems however in the presence of fat vitamin C actually increases nitrosamine production so adding it to meet may actually make it more carcinogenic phytonutrients also referred to as phytochemicals are compounds found in plants they serve various functions in Plants helping to protect the plants Vitality for example some phytonutrients protect the plan from UV radiation While others protected from insect attack not only do phytonutrients award benefits of the plants but they also provide benefits to those who enjoy plant food that's because they
00:11:48have health-promoting properties including antioxidant anti-inflammatory and Liver Health promoting activities fruits and vegetables are concentrated sources of vitamin E turians other plans foods like whole grains legumes beans nuts and seeds and herbs and spices also contain phytonutrients many phytonutrients also served as the pigment that gives food so deep Q's you can identify many vital nutrient rich foods by looking for colorful foods for example look for Tuesday are blue or purple like blueberries blackberries and red cabbage rich in flavonoids yellow-orange foods like carrots winter squash papaya a melon rich in beta-carotene red or pink foods like tomatoes guava and
00:12:43watermelon rich in like pain and green foods like kale spinach and collard greens rich and chlorophyll yet since not all phytonutrients give color it's important to not Overlook some off-white Foods as well for example garlic onions and leeks are rich and Powerful sulfur-containing vital nutrients once upon a time it was thought that fats proteins carbohydrates vitamins and minerals were all the nutrients necessary for growth and health now we know there's another essential group of nutrients needed for Optimal Health vital nutrients also known as phytochemicals these are the nutrients often concentrated in the skins of many fruits and vegetables and are responsible for their color Q sent and flavor
00:13:38examples of foods rich in these nutrients include Tomatoes red onions green tea grapes red cabbage is sweet potatoes broccoli kale parsley spinach blueberries raspberries blackberries melons garlic and the list goes on we have known for a while that plant-based foods are extremely beneficial to consume and phytonutrients may be the reason why there are literally thousands of them in our food some phytonutrients help our cells communicate better with each other others help prevent mutations at a cellular level some more anti-inflammatory others are potent antioxidants and Minnie have functions we are only beginning to understand what we do know is they help prevent cancer heart disease and most chronic diseases in general far
00:14:36anti-aging boost the immune system and generally promote Health the best-known phytonutrients are the crow tail lights flavonoids probably feels Ingles the guns and Isis with owns Pro tights include yellow orange and red pigment in fruits and vegetables dark green leafy vegetables are rich in the carotenoid beta-carotene but the usual yellow color is masked by the chlorophyll the green pigment in vegetables flavonoids are Reddish pigments found in red grape skins and citrus fruits while probably smells are found in green tea and berries and those are found in cruciferous vegetables then is in flaxseed and Ice of Amazon's can be found in peanuts lendl's soy and other legumes it's best to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables the more varied the
00:15:35colors the better this is because each classified on your dreams have different effects like other nutrients different phytonutrients offer different benefits and synergistically with each other for example flavonoids and proteins have more Health promoting properties when they're eating together in the same food rather than when they are taken separately it is always best to get your Fido nutrients from fresh organic fruits and vegetables but if you not eating enough of the real thing I highly recommend a green powder drink which contains a broad spectrum of phytonutrients food preparation affects the vital nutrients and raw vegetables usually have more nutrients than cooked ones there are some exceptions cooking broccoli for example releases the enzyme into all that fights cancer when you cross your chop garlic
00:16:34it releases the enzyme unless I nice to produce the active phytonutrient Allison vital nutrients in the diet part on the major food principles like protein carbohydrates and fats large number of food items we consume consists of indispensable components in them known as phytonutrients are planned their eyes chemical substances although their calorific value is insignificant inclusion in our diet and adequate levels of these in Earth compounds is imperative sentence the potential benefits in terms of their direct contribution to health promotion and disease prevention are really enormous change in lifestyle and dietary patterns has resulted in modern world illnesses like irritable bowel syndrome coronary artery disease diabetes stroke answers Etc and higher frequencies than ever before several research
00:17:34and experimental epidemiological studies had clearly suggested that the trends in these diseases patterns linked very closely to the diet we can soon consequently new interest has risen in the medicinal properties of food items like herbs spices vegetables and fruits along with their peels Studies have found that certain chemicals other than nutritional principles in antimutagenic free radical Scavenging and Immunity boosting functions which help promote health and prevent diseases apart from their nutritive value modern science believes that generation of free radicals inside cell is the triggering factor for diseases process in humans free radicals Barnstable free molecules of reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species generated inside the human body they labeled as incomplete items
00:18:34in the sense that they lack an electron attaching to them since they are in stable and freely wondering inside the cells they react quickly with other compounds and their vicinity in order to capture that required electron to form a pair and become stable this inclination and reaction of free radicals with different organelles inside a living cell leads to their structural damage once the rate of damage supersedes repair disease process in suits in the form of depressed immunity easy susceptibility to viruses and bacteria cancers cardiovascular diseases nerve degeneration vital nutrients are present abundantly in the plant world examples include antioxidant vital sterile of plant sterols non-digestible non starch carbohydrates such as tannins pectin cellulose
00:19:33can a cellulose mucilage National acids enzymes and lecithin antioxidants study suggests that cancers occur due to a series of rotational events occurring at the cellular level triggered by free oxygen radicals and reactive oxygen species are os these free radicals have the ability to damage cells DNA cell membrane and proteins like ion channels receptors antioxidants by virtue of their reduction potentials can bind to oxidation radicals at these levels and interrupt free radical injury by reversing are limiting the extent of damage several groups of antioxidants have been identified such a poly phenolic flavonoids and to CNN's examples of certain antioxidants in

00:45:05shows of frog original substitution pattern phytonutrients AKA phytochemicals are compounds found in plants that protect the plan from things like the sun's harsh Rays or predatory bugs more specifically the bright color of a plant's food may act as a sunscreen or the plant might produce a substance that makes it take to hard boil tea bags as a method of protection basically phytonutrients fried for a plan tell when we include plans like fruits vegetables and whole grains in our diets to phytonutrients fight for our health to there are numerous types of phytonutrients many of which are also antioxidants antioxidants are like crime fighters in your body they stop free radicals or unstable molecules that steal from healthy cells in our body to cause damage and changes
00:46:05free radical comes in contact with a healthy sell it turns it into another free radical in the chain of free radical formation just keeps going and going and going antioxidant stop is damaging chain of free radical formation there for protecting our cells and the standings and course I'd each plant has many different types of phytonutrients blackcurrants specifically contain large amounts of N2 CNN's one of the most potent antioxidants in the plant kingdom I understand in these are also responsible for the deep purple color of black currants you may see the terms or a quart EQ used in reference to how much antioxidant activity of food has the oxygen radical absorption capacity or Iraq scores and the trollocs equivalent antioxidant capacity or Chic scores both measure how well do
00:47:05antioxidants in a food neutralize free radicals the antioxidant immune-boosting and other health promoting properties of active compound in plants are being investigated fruits vegetables grains legumes tree nuts and teas are sources of phytonutrients some of the common classes of phytonutrients include car toys flavonoids Palos Hills including Isis LeBron's phytoestrogens I know Stella phosphates phytates lignans phytoestrogens I thought he is cn8 Sandals phone off and cyclic compounds sickening sulfides and feels in turbans phytonutrient power drink ingredients for cups green tea 1 teaspoon Ginger 1 teaspoon turmeric juice of one lemon
00:48:02herbs Choice like mint or Rosemary directions Brew 4 cups of green tea and ginger turmeric lemon juice and herbs refrigerate and enjoy a glass in the morning instead of coffee researchers have compared the antioxidant activity of different theories using a method called teak which measures the antioxidant capacity of the food in the body the darker the color the Richer the fruit is in on the CNN's based on tests conducted by Miller and rice Evans black current score. Almost two times higher in antioxidants capacity than many other types of fruit currently the terms phytonutrient and phytochemical are being used interchangeably to describe those plant compounds which are thought to have health protecting qualities
