In This Episode:

  • Discover the amazing role of phytochemicals in plants [00:36]
  • Learn about the 5 colors of phytonutrients [02:04]
  • What research has found to be the top 6 benefits of a phytonutrient-rich diet [05:55]
  • These are the 5 most well-studied phytonutrients [07:45]
  • Understand why it’s important that you should eat a “rainbow” [17:13]

Colors are not only beautiful, but they can also be an amazing source of protection depending on where you see them. Deep colors of green, purple, red, yellow, and white are very rich in phytonutrients and can be found in the foods we are consuming daily. In this episode, Dr. Jockers gives a more in-depth discussion about what phytonutrients are, the top food sources that are rich in phytonutrients, and the wonderful benefits you can enjoy from phytonutrient-rich foods.

“Phytonutrients are nutrients derived from plant material that has been shown to be necessary for sustaining human life. Phytochemicals are non-nutritive plant chemicals that contain protective, disease-preventing compounds.”

-Dr. David Jockers
