The Importance of Healthy Eating
It keeps inflammation under control
Eating antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables and nuts helps keep free radicals, inflammation, and advanced glycation end (AGE) product production in check. Plus, fresh fruits and vegetables contain naturally occurring vitamins, enzymes and co-agents, which are necessary for fighting free radicals and battling inflammation.
It allows the body to function better
Eating the right clean, wholesome foods provides the body with the necessary nutrients—proteins, carbohydrates, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals—to maintain optimum health. Sufficient amounts of essential nutrients allow for the internal organs, tissues and muscles to work efficiently and effectively.
It cuts down on your risk of disease
Certain foods, like refined sugars, white flour, sugar-laden desserts, artificial sweeteners, processed foods, junk food, and foods cooked at high temperatures, should be eliminated from your diet. They offer little to no nutritional value, speed up the aging process, and can contribute to or cause serious diseases and illnesses.
