And now researchers at University College London are recommending 10 portions for a really ‘health defensive’ diet. That level significantly reduces cancer, heart disease and indeed all other mortality risks, say the researchers in a report published by the British Medical Journal.
Based on the 12-year study, the researchers also found that vegetables had a four times healthier impact than fruit.
But few people can realistically manage 10 portions of fruits and vegetables EVERY day.
Although whole fruits and vegetables are ideal because they contain so many different health-promoting compounds, we do know that polyphenols (some of which are also called flavonoids) are amongst the most beneficial. So adding selected polyphenols in extract form can make a worthwhile contribution towards your overall nutritional targets.
