Modern science still tells us that the best health protection
comes from eating fruits & vegetables.
Introduce your patients to antioxidant protection from fruits and vegetables with Red and Green Protect. Red and Green Protect are a convenient method of increasing vitamin, mineral, fiber and phyto-nutrient intake from fruits and vegetables to help prevent disease and improve health.
Epidemiologic evidence of a protective role for fruits and vegetables in disease prevention is substantial. Current scientific evidence suggests a protective role for fruits and vegetables in prevention of coronary hearth disease, and evidence is accumulating for a protective role in stroke.
In addition, a new scientific base is emerging to support a protective role for fruits and vegetables in prevention of cataract formation, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diverticululosis, and possibly, hypertension.
Each serving of RED & GREEN PROTECT provides the antioxidant protection of 10 servings of fruits & vegetables, combined with probiotics and enzymes. No artificial colors or flavors, no preservatives, no artificial sweeteners, no yeast, eggs, MSG or GMO. Gluten-free.
The health importance of vegetables and fruits in the diet has been emphasized for many years. In 1990, it was determined that 90% of surveyed individuals did not consume the recommended three vegetables and two fruits per day. Unfortunately, today most people continue to avoid vegetables and fruits in favor of refined foods that lack nutrient density. Approximately 60% of our dietary calories are estimated to come from foods made of flour, sugar, and refined seed oils, and no more than 10% of consumed calories come from vegetables and fruit. The host of chronic diseases that afflict modern man are thought to be caused, in part, by a lifetime of eating too few fruits and vegetables.
Efforts made by doctors, educators, and government agencies to increase the consumption of vegetables and fruit have not been successful. Dr. Bruce Ames, a well known toxicologist, suggests the following comparison be made:
“Common micronutrient deficiencies, due to a lack of vegetable and fruit intake, are likely to damage DNA by the same mechanism as radiation and many chemicals, appear to be orders of magnitude more important, and should be compared for perspective.”
In addition to our deficient intake of vegetation, it is important to understand that the nutrient density of farmed vegetables and fruit is thought to be significantly less than wild counterparts that were historically consumed. It is not uncommon for individuals to consider that they can make up for deficient vegetation in the diet by taking antioxidants like vitamins C and E and isolated antioxidant bioflavonoids such as quercetin; if only this practice were true. In fact, the diversity of bioflavonoids in vegetables and fruit is almost incomprehensible and we do not yet fully understand how they work synergistically to support human health.
Examples of flavonoids that we cannot adequately derive by isolated supplementation include apigenen, chrysin, cyanidin, delphinidin, fisetin, hesperetin, kaempferol, luteolin, malvidin, myricetin, naringin, naringenin, pelargonidin, peonidin, petunidin, sibelin, and taxifolin. For several years, researchers have suggested that the consumption of these compounds leads to an increase in plasma antioxidant capacity. Recently the total antioxidant capacity of plasma was increased in most subjects within just one week of consuming vegetable juice three
The antioxidant capacity of a vegetable or fruit is currently determined by the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) assay. It is generally thought that the higher the ORAC value of a food, the greater its contribution to plasma antioxidant capacity. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has compiled a list of ORAC values for common foods and is available at the USDA’s website.
In addition to eating vegetables and fruit and drinking vegetable/fruit juice, it is possible to derive ORAC benefits by consuming powdered vegetables and fruit. For many individuals, powdered supplemental vegetables and fruit is an effective way to increase the antioxidant potential of their diets.
