Overview

Phytochemicals are bioactive compounds found in natural sources, particularly in plant foods. These elements work with the existing nutrients and fiber in fruits and vegetables to boost the body's immune system to make it resistant to diseases and infections.

Filling up one's diet with fruits and vegetables that are rich in phytochemicals lowers the risk of developing chronic diseases like cancer, heart diseases, and diabetes. Its antioxidant properties also help in protecting the body from free radicals in the environment and the food we eat. As cancer-causing agents are deactivated and controlled, you can live a healthier and happier life.
