For years we have been told to eat 5 a day, and so we all try to aim for that amount but did you know that in fact the ‘5 a day’ amount was only published and then advertised as the government considered any more to be ‘of not realistic amount’
In other countries the target advised are very different and incidentally always MORE than what we here in the UK have been advised.
For example, Canada recommed 5-10 portions a day
Denmark 6 a day
And Japan recommend 13 vegetables and 4 fruits a day!!!
So what can we do?
You can start to eat more, yes thats right, eat lots more fresh fruits and vegetables, our bodies need this, they contain high levels of vitamins and the phytochemicals protect us from Cancer and Inflammation.
If you struggle to eat 5 a day (and I would suggest aiming for 9 a day) then JuicePlus+ can help.
