Red and orange vegetables and fruits are rich in antioxidants
Red and orange vegetables and fruits are rich in antioxidants – which prevent the impact of carcinogens on the body.
Poor nutrition is the cause of serious diseases (in 40% of men and 60% of women) – concluded experts who researched cancer. That is why it is important to consume useful products.
Lycopene, this powerful natural antioxidant, prevents aging, the development of cancer cells, helps normalize cholesterol exchange and prevents the onset of arteriosclerosis and cardiovascular system diseases. Lycopene is found in grapefruit, watermelon, tomatoes, apricots, pumpkins, and dates. Tomatoes are especially rich in lycopene. Just one tablespoon of tomato paste per day reduces the risk of prostate cancer, digestive organs and sexual organs. This is also a prevention of cardiovascular diseases. By the way, there is 10 times more lycopene in tomato paste, ketchup, juice and sauce than in fresh tomatoes. But this applies only to domestic products prepared at home – without added preservatives and other harmful ingredients. Grapefruit contains lycopene but also monoterpenes, which also expel carcinogenic substances.
Beta-carotene (provitamin A) – is converted into vitamin A in the body. This is also a powerful antioxidant found in vegetables and fruits of bright yellow and orange colors (yellow peppers, carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, peaches, apricots and bananas).
Indole is found in broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts. It prevents the excess production of estrogen (which can become the cause of cancer, especially tumors and mammary glands). For maximum indole preservation, vegetables should be eaten raw or after a short steaming.
The daily norm is 5 or more pieces of different fruits and vegetables (500 to 800 grams).
