A Beautiful Life....A Beautiful Body

My whole family eats all these foods everyday!

17 Fruits, Vegetables, & Grains

We take Juice Plus+ which contains a wide variety of nutritionally dense fruits and vegetables, vine rippened and then reduced to a juice powder concentrate using a proprietary process. Fruits and vegetables contain many phytonutrients, from such familiar vitamins as vitamin C and beta-carotene, to less widely known antioxidant compounds, including polyphenols and flavonoids. It also includes the carotenoids, beta-cryptoxanthin, and lycopene. Below are a few examples of the broad range of phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables, but remember that there are many more than those listed here:

Apple: Pectin along with a variety of polyphenols and other antioxidants
Acerola Cherry: Vitamin C and anthocyanadins
Cranberry: Flavonoid and phenolic antioxidants
Orange: Vitamin C, folate, and several carotenoids including beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin
Papaya: Vitamin C, potassium, and several carotenoids including beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin
