Fruits And Vegetables
IMPORTANCES OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLE
Fruits and vegetable are important part of a nutritious diet. They contain vitamins, fiber, and other nutrients.
Though they both make up the basis of a notorious diet, fruit and vegetables have classification based on their botanical structure. The fruits people eat are the seed- bearing structure in following the plant, while vegetables consist of edible plant stem, leave and other plant components.
Half of your diet should be raw, organic fruits and vegetables and whole grains. Even adding one serving a day can lower your heart diseases risk. A serving size of fruits and vegetables is typically one and half cup to one cup, which is four to eight ounces. When in doubt, I tell people to picture the size of a tennis ball. A diet rich fruits and vegetables can often reduce blood pressure as much as medication does. People who eat more than four serving a day have lower levels of bad cholesterol. Studies clearly show that for preventing cancer, fruits and vegetables are the best ‘medicine’. The natural phytonutrients in produce protect against all kind of cancer. In This publication I’ve covered the importance of eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

Research continually shows the benefits of pomegranate-one of the world’s richest sources of antioxidants. Pomegranate protects your heart by protecting arterial walls and improving blood flow to the heart.
Studies also show that pomegranate helps arm your body against cardiovascular disease inhibiting the oxidation of LDL[bad] cholesterol.
In addition, pomegranate may reverse atherosclerosis. In a recent study, Israeli scientists found that among people given daily pomegranate supplements, lesions in the carotid artery decreased in size by 35 percent. The lesions in those who did not take pomegranate actually grew by 9 percent. This means that pomegranate reversed existing atherosclerosis.
In summary fruits is higher in sugar and calories than vegetables, but both fruits and vegetables are rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
