If you knew what I know about the remarkable power of fruits and vegetables to transform health for the better at every possible level – I am sure you would do just what I do and never miss an opportunity to pop another one in your mouth. The list of health benefits for partaking on the produce front include pretty much anything you could imagine – even keeping a sharp and agile mind. Based on a new report from the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease (Sept 09), healthy adults who consume the most fruits and veggies (about 400 grams daily) perform better intellectually than those consuming low amounts. Bottom line – eating lots of fruits and veggies is smart and eating small amounts is stupid.
Although all have something good to offer the body – enjoy these superstars regularly to get the most nutritional ooh-la-la for your efforts.
