A healthy diet and disease

Did you know that you need to eat A BASKET OF FRUITS on a daily basis in order to get the optimal amount of nutrients for your body?
 

"Fruit and vegetable intake: five a day may not be enough, scientists say":

  • we should instead be aiming for seven a day, and mostly vegetables at that.
  • Eating at least seven portions of fresh fruit and vegetables a day was linked to a 42% lower risk of death from all causes. It was also associated with a 25% lower risk of cancer and 31% lower risk of heart disease or stroke.
  • Vegetables seemed to be significantly more protection against disease than eating fruit, they say.
  • There was a surprise finding – people who ate canned or frozen fruit actually had a higher risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer.

 We need 7 servings of colourful vegetables & fruits daily

Yes, you need to eat A BASKET OF COLOURFUL VEGETABLES for health:
  • If you eat 1 portion of vegetables per day, you have 16% less chances of premature death
  • If you eat 1 portion of salad (lettuce and other leafy greens), you have 13% less chances of premature death
  • If you eat 1 portion of frozen/canned fruit, you have 17% more chances of premature death
Since our cells grow and die on a daily basis, it's important to keep up a balanced diet on a daily basis to ensure that our bodies get the optimal amount of nutrients to keep everything in balance. If you don't, then your body goes out of whack and you're susceptible to all sorts of diseases.

How can I get 7 servings of colourful vegetables & fruits daily?

If you're a busy Mom like me, you'll need dietary supplements. 

Specifically, you'll need supplements that can give you pure extracts of 4 servings of fruits, 5 servings of vegetables from 6 coloured varieties of fruits and vegetables.

NO BINDERS. NO FILLERS. NO ADDED SUGAR. 
NO ARTIFICIAL COLOURING.



Currently, I am taking a top quality supplement that provide:

- marigold extracts (containing lutein, zeaxanthin), tomato lycopene, carotene, gardenia (containing crocetin)
- refined fish oil for DHA, wheat germ oil, blackcurrant extracts, blueberry extracts, 
- vitamin E and vitamin B1, B2, B6, B12

With only 2-3 chewy soft gels per day, I feel more alert and energized, no menstrual cramps and I sleep better :) 

If you'd like to know more about these supplements, please call/text +6012 9122 436 or Email iamsupermum[at]gmail[dot]com
