Health Tip – Feb. 11 – Taste the Colors
Dee Dee – Health Tip
Foods with bright, rich colors are more than just nice to look at. They’re also packed with flavonoids and carotenoids, powerful compounds that bind the damaging free radicals in your body, lowering inflammation. (Sadly, skittles do not count.)
Eat nine fistfuls of colorful fruits and vegetables each day and you’ll reap the benefits without having to give up other foods. Whenever you shop the produce aisle, be reminded that these foods are often more powerful than the drugs sold in pharmacies.
