5 Reasons Why You Must Eat Your Fruits and Vegetables


As adults, we don’t get told to eat our fruits and vegetables anymore. In one way, it’s great because it is no longer a form of punishment but on the other hand, it is quite a disadvantage. Without the constant nagging, some of us might be neglecting our fruit and vegetable intake, which can be negatively affecting our bodies. Here are 5 reasons why it is essential to eat fruits and vegetables every day.

 

Improves Bowel Regularity

You will probably complain about constipation at least once in your life and if you already have, you know how incredibly uncomfortable this condition is. In naturopathic medicine, less than one bowel movement a day is considered a sign of gastrointestinal dysfunction. Eating fruits and vegetables regularly and in abundance will help keep your bowels healthy and flowing properly.

 

Improves Good Gut Flora

Over the years, we have learned that our bodies are hosts to over 100 trillion microbial cells made of over 1000 different types of bacteria. These microbes affect our digestion, physiology, nutrition, metabolism, immune system, and even our mental health. By eating lots of fruits and vegetables, you can promote healthy and good gut flora (or intestine bacteria) that will help keep you feeling good and running smoothly.

 

Reduces Risk of High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a major risk factor for cardiovascular and renal diseases. Fruit and vegetable consumption can help combat this and decrease the risk of developing hypertension. Fruits and vegetables are great for this because they are full of potassium, which balances out the effects of salt.

 

Regulate Blood Sugar and Prevents Diabetes

Fruit and vegetables are high in fiber. When our bodies are filed with a healthy dose of fiber, our bowels reduce the absorption of carbohydrates. This in turn results in lower blood glucose and insulin levels. Managing these levels will help you prevent diabetes.

 

Manages Weight

Eating fruits and vegetables is always recommended for those who are trying to loose or manage weight. They are effective in this because eating fruits and vegetables make you feel fuller for longer. Some vegetables have extremely low or negative calorie counts, which means that you can eat until you’re full and not have to worry about your calorie count.
