Imagine a way to get the equivalent of 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day – in one small serving capsule. That’s what Vegiberries has to offer – the ORAC value of more than five servings of fruits and vegetables in one capsule.
5-9 a Day for Better Health
This slogan reflects a major government-industry campaign to encourage people to eat more fruits and vegetables. Studies by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the National Academy of Sciences suggest that the nutritional goodness of fruits and vegetables, with a diet that is low in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, and that contains plenty of whole-grain breads and cereals, may decrease certain serious health issues. The U.S.D.A. and Department of Health and Human Services’ Food Guide Pyramid recommends 3 to 5 servings of vegetables and 2 to 4 servings of fruit per day.
Experts say that as many as 42% of the population are eating less than this amount!
NOTE: Vegiberries are not intended to replace the total nutrient value of fresh fruits and vegetables.
How can Vegiberries help?
“Phytofoods” that exist in Vegiberries can supply us with the best possible protection against free radicals.
During photosynthesis (the botanical conversion of H2O and CO2 into carbohydrates by means of sunlight), a huge number of free radicals are produced. Plants need strong antioxidants to protect against cellular damage by these free radicals. Antioxidant plant pigments, primarily carotenoids and flavonoids, provide most of the protection. Research has shown that human ingestion of these compounds results in similar protection.
The powerful health benefits of REAL fruits and vegetables are attributed to the high levels of plant compounds called Polyphenols. Polyphenols are powerful flavonoid antioxidants which help protect us from the damaging effects of excess free radicals. Just 550mg of Vegiberries provides 3000 ORAC units! This powerhouse blend provides quality antioxidants from concentrates, plus a liberal helping of fully-intact whole fruit and vegetable phytochemicals from concentrated freeze-dried fruit powders.
