The Power of Colours

According to the American Cancer Institute, we should aim for an average of 7 serving of fruits and vegetables daily to decrease the risk of abnormal growth of cells. This is because fruits and vegetables contain phytonutrients which are powerful free radical scavengers and immune system boosters. In fact, the more 'colourful' our diet, the higher number of phytonutrients it contains. Generally, phytonutrients come in 7 colour groups. Adequate intake of all colours group is important as each addresses different oxidative reactions.
