Category: Phytonutrients

Phytonutrients are the magical elements produced by plants to help them thrive or protect themselves against predators, competitors, or pathogens. By using the word “magical” I am expressing my deep gratitude for the compounds that are of great benefit to humans who eat whole, real foods.

Did you know that the regulatory agencies in the U.S. that monitor how processed food is labeled have decided food manufacturers are not allowed to talk about the health benefits of phytonutrients or phytochemicals on their packaging? There is a growing body of science that can help consumers understand the nutrition in all kinds of foods, and if you are a woman seeking wellness, that’s important knowledge!
