Plants contain thousands of natural chemicals. These are called phytonutrients or phytochemicals. “Phyto” refers to the Greek word for plant. These chemicals help protect plants from germs, fungi, bugs, and other threats.

Phytonutrients are non-nutrient compounds present in plants which function as anti-oxidants, enhance immune system, mimic hormones, detoxify carcinogens and suppress development of diseases, thus rendering a host of health benefits. People consuming generous servings of fruits and vegetables and eating whole grains on a regular basis are less likely to develop cardiovascular diseases, cancer, type 2 diabetes or premature ageing.

3 of 4 adults worldwide do not meet the World Health Organization’s recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.

The gap between the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables and what adults are actually eating also indicates that most adults worldwide are not receiving the quantity or variety of phytonutrients – organic compounds found in fruits and vegetables – potentially needed to support their health and wellness.

While specific recommendations for phytonutrient consumption levels have not yet been established uniformly worldwide, a growing body of research suggests that eating foods rich in phytonutrients may provide a range of health benefits, from promoting eye, bone and heart health, to supporting immune and brain function. Many phytonutrients are powerful antioxidants that can help fight the damage caused to our bodies’ cells over time.


Phytonutrients, the organic components found in plants, can help promote eye, bone, joint and heart health, as well as support immune and brain function.

The human body is an ecosystem that is constantly seeking to maintain inner balance to function optimally. Proper nutrition is a vital factor to reach your body’s inner balance, and a balanced and varied diet is important to get a mental and physical well-being, as well as an overall health for the years to come.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is recommended to consume a minimum of 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. It is important to add in your daily diet fruits and vegetables from all 5 color groups – green, white, yellow, red and purple. Each one delivering specific and valuable nutrients. In fact, plants not only contain different vitamins and minerals  but also secondary compounds known as phytonutrients (phyto from the Greek = plant and nutrients = life-enabling substances), which give plants their typical color and are thought to be beneficial for human health.
