The active health-protecting compounds that are found as components of plants.
Currently, the terms “phytochemical” and “phytonutrient” are being used interchangeably to describe those plant compounds which are thought to have health-protecting qualities.
The antioxidant, immune boosting and other health promoting properties of active compounds in plants are being investigated. Phytonutrients or phytochemicals that are being studied presently include (and are not limited to) terpenes, carotenoids, limonoids, and phytosterols.
Pomegranates contain tons of nutrition… and best of all, it’s low in calories. In just one pomegranate fruit there is around 100 calories. But that’s only the beginning of the nutrition pomegranate provides:
a great source of potassium
more antioxidants compared to other juices and even wine!
vitamin B and Vitamin C
great source of fiber
helps prevent heart disease
keeps your immune system in top notch conditions
prevents buildup of material in your arteries
Pomegranates are a superfood!
Prebiotics & Probiotics
Prebiotics and probiotics can restore the balance of bacteria in your digestive tract. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that can be found in various foods. When you eat probiotics, you will add these healthy bacteria to your intestinal tract. Common strains include Lactobacillis and Bifidobacterium families of bacteria. Prebiotics are non-digestible foods that make their way through our digestive system and help good bacteria grow and flourish. Prebiotics keep beneficial bacteria healthy.

We take it for granted. We ignore it’s needs. We take antibiotics which wreak havoc with it’s flora. What am I taking about? Your colon, and it’s trillions of beneficial bacteria.
Our gastrointestinal tract is home to a thriving community of good, and bad bacteria. We couldn’t manage without them (particularly the good ones). Our intestinal flora perform countless health-enhancing tasks, like:-
Producing organic acids to maintain the healthy pH in your colon
Producing enzymes and B vitamins for digestive health and nutrient absorption.
Creating a barrier to unfriendly organisms and crowding out bad bacteria.
Protecting us from cancer by:-
Having the ability to bind and deactivate cancer causing substances in our food (like pyrolysates and N-nitrosamines which result from cooking meat at high temperatures)
Keeping the population of bad bacteria in check. An overgrowth of bad bacteria has a detrimental effect on hormones, causing an oversupply which causes excess hormones to absorbed into the bloodstream. Problems associated with excess hormones include, fibrocystic breast disease, PMS, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, prostate enlargement and breast, ovary, uterus and prostate cancer.
To avoid these potentially nasty problems we need to be kind to our colons and supplement our diets with friendly bacteria. These are called prebiotics.
Along with eliminating those bad habits referred to in Part 2 of this series, we must change what we are doing and eating.
Unfortunately, it’s simply not enough to stop the bad stuff, we have to intake lots of the good stuff. We have a lot to overcome, to have average health, let alone optimal health.
Basically, in order for our bodies to function at it’s optimal level, we need a whole spectrum of nutrients. These nutrients can be grouped as below:-
Vitamin, minerals, trace minerals
Essential fatty acids (EFA)
Essential amino acids
Probiotics and prebiotics
Cleansing and detoxification herbs
Boy, that’s a whole heap of stuff we need! Do have any idea how to achieve the result you need?
The problem we have is that a so-called balanced diet only considers proportions of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Most people don’t even know about, say, alkaline promoters. Did your doctor ever discuss brainfood or antioxidants with you? I’ll bet that didn’t happen. Umm, something to think about.
The answer is supplementation. Natural supplements should not be considered alternative or complimentary therapies or medicines. They are natural foods, not drugs.
