Why Do We Need To Eat More Fruits and Veggies?

Because they're a prime source of "co-factors" - the term professionals use when talking about vitamins, minerals and nutrients your body needs to process food.

Co-factors are crucial for you to be able to absorb nutrition from food, make fuel for energy, neutralize stress and age gracefully. Even low carb fanatics know they have to eat veggies with their meat, fish, eggs or cheese. Otherwise, they get constipated and have bad breath.

Your body can't break down protein well without co-factors. You not only get clogged up, but you can also get leaky gut, which are holes in your intestines. These holes are made by bacteria as they gobble up the rotting protein lodged in your intestines.

A leaky gut allows foreign substances to pass into your bloodstream and land in your joints. This results in inflammation and joint pain. It causes your immune system to start misfiring and your skin to break out in ugly lookin' acne, spots and scabs.

Sometimes, what leaks through causes toxic growths and arterial plaque. Soon diseases emerge, like allergies, arthritis, acne, osteoporosis, lupus, even cancer and heart disease.
