Sufficient servings of white foods also boost the body’s natural potassium levels which also boost and support nerve and muscle function.

The Power of Yellow and Orange

Orange and yellow fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, carotenoids and other essential vitamins. Regular servings of orange and yellow produce can help improve eyesight, boost immunity; are great for skin, and are essential for growth and development.

The Power of Green

Green leafy veggies and bright green fruit contain powerful phytochemicals such as indoles. Green produce are high  in essential vitamins, which support cell health, help to reduce cancer risk, maintain healthy liver function and increase immunity.

The Power of Red

Red fruits and vegetables house essential phyto-nutrients and antioxidants such as lycopene which can assist in stimulating communication between cells and decreasing abnormal cell growth. Sufficient servings of reds support heart health and cardiovascular function.
