Eating real food

A vibrant colourful diet with fruits, berries, vegetables, roots, and herbs provides the richest in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidant and phytochemicals.

My mission is to educate people in functional foods and provide them with tools to find a balanced diet that they can focus on preventative health rather than treating diseases.

Living foods promote a diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins and enzymes, but also a diet low in sodium, zero artificial sugars, gluten-free, and highly nutritious. A large amount of  scientific research shows that certains living foods are part of a balanced diet offering profound risk reduction of many diseases, such as cancers, neurodegenerative diseases, and cardiovascular diseases.

RESEARCH

A research study published in the journal Circulation in 2021, reported information about health and diet from dozens of studies from around the world, which included about two million people who were followed for up to 30 years. They compared people that ate just two servings of fruits or vegetables each day, with people who ate five servings per day.

The results shown the following;

a 13% lower risk of death from any cause
a 12% lower risk of death from heart disease or stroke
a 10% lower risk of death from cancer
a 35% lower risk of death from respiratory disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Numerous studies show that meeting the recommended daily intake of fruit and vegetables is associated with a reduced risk for a number of chronic diseases, with the evidence for cardiovascular disease and stroke being particularly strong.
