Want to Live Longer?
Fruits and Veggies!
Hit 10 portions of produce per day, and you’ll literally live longer. Eating 10 per day will considerably lower your risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer, or premature death. If 10 is a lot to handle, never fear. People who consumed smaller amounts of produce each day still saw more benefits, than people who didn’t eat fruit or vegetables at all.
The fiber in those fruits and veggies helps you feel satisfied and supports healthy digestive function. Fiber also balances blood sugar. Whole fruits and vegetables will provide lots of fiber, but this is one case when juice isn’t a nutritional equivalent.
Eating plenty of produce makes it easier to maintain a healthy weight because fruit and vegetables are low in calories. You’re less likely to indulge in sweets or fatty foods with your stomach full of healthy, fiber-filled produce.
Produce is also packed full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to help your body thrive. To get the full range of benefits, try to eat fruit and vegetables from the full range of the color spectrum.
