Why It Matters

“Phytonutrients are naturally occuring substances in vegetables and fruits. They are essential to our health and our best protection against chronic disease. Phytonutrients are an important reason that eating more plants and less of everything else makes people healthier. Eating more plants means you and your family will feel better, sleep better, and most importantly, get sick less often.” -Medical Expert Angelica Hind, M.D.
