Many of us do not get enough nutrients from fruits and vegetables. We struggle with a daily fruit and vegetable consumption gap. Bad conditions can develop if fruit and vegetables aren’t a part of your everyday diet.
If you are vitamin deficient, it can take a toll on your gums, heart, immune system and can be the cause of oxidative stress. The most efficient way to reduce your risk of disease is to eat healthy.
There are a variety of common ailments and diseases that many people face including: gum disease, heart disease, immune system disorders plus concerns about the look and feel of skin and hair. Also, oxidative stress plays a role in sickness and disease.
According to Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D oxidative stress is the total burden placed on organisms by the constant production of free radicals in the normal course of metabolism plus whatever pressures the environment brings to bear (natural and artificial radiation, toxins in air, food and water, and miscellaneous sources of oxidizing activity, such as tobacco smoke). Even exercising which is good for us can cause oxidative stress.
Although less than optimal nutrition does not cause gum disease many researchers believe that a nutrient poor diet can contribute to gum disease and can be a catapult for the progression of gum disease.
Heart disease can be caused by genetics but more cases are arising from poor nutrition. Many people do not have time to eat properly and turn to processed food when they are hungry.
Poor nutrition is linked to immune function suppression and again, since many Americans eat a diet high in processed foods, they are not getting the nutrition their bodies so desperately need.
Also, if your diet is not up to par, your hair may become dry and nails may crack and become brittle.
So, what can you do to get the nutrients your body needs to be healthy and help ward off disease and oxidative stress?
