To get clarity on how this single
of your body's health is aging you from
the inside-out and functioning as a
precursor to disease, if left unchecked,
watch this except great animation
illustrating the process and answer.
The clip so clearly illustrates the damaging
chain reaction of this #1 enemy in our body.
It also begins to point to the seemingly simple
While nearly all recent research points to this
free radical damage, and resulting inflammation,
as a key cause to disease and the very process
of aging, the preventive measure seems clear, on
There have been over 350,000 published
scientific papers on the direct benefits of
antioxidants to counter this oxidation process
in our bodies. The most natural and
effective are what we get from eating quality
fruits and vegetables.
The USDA now tells us we need to consume 7-9
servings of fruit daily to get these critical
antioxidants and phytonutrients. Did you
eat your 7 to 9 fruits today? How about
yesterday? When was the last time you did
this baseline minimum?
There are two dilemmas here. Why do less
than 5% of the population eat this minimum level
the USDA tells us is necessary to maintain
optimum health and greatly reduce your risk of
disease such as cancer, heart disease and
diabetes? One is a function of
convenience. Good habit patterns are
difficult to develop considering the time,
effort and money to shop for, prepare and eat
this daily - most fall short of even this
Secondly, even those conscientious about their
fruit intake and who try to eat the recommended
daily servings, are nearly always still falling
short. The dilemma lies in the depleted
nutritional content of commercially grown fruits
today. A recent report revealed that in
1951, two peaches would have supplied the
current RDA of vitamin A for an adult woman.
Today, a woman would have to eat 53 peaches to
meet the same requirement! Modern
agricultural practices, combined with harvesting
and storage methods, are largely responsible for
this disturbing nutritional degradation.
While the habit of eating 7 to 9 fruits per day
may provide an obstacle, and the fact that what
we find in the local produce department has been
called, "empty fruit" - there is strong trend
toward a simple, effective solution.
Functional fruit juice blends are growing at an
exponential pace for good reason. People
are looking for quick, convenient, effective
solutions to counter the antioxidant and
nutrient deficiencies that threaten our quality
