Title: Overwhelming evidence... indicates that a plantbased diet can reduce the risk of chronic disease...t

Scientific Phytonutrition and Life-Long
  • Overwhelming evidence... indicates that a
    plant-based diet can reduce the risk of chronic
    disease...there are components in a plant-based
    diet other than traditional nutrients that can
    reduce cancer risk. More than a dozen classes of
    these biologically active plant chemicals, now
    known as 'phytochemicals', have been
  • Scientific basis of biomarkers and benefits of
    functional foods for reduction of disease risk

    Nutrition, Karolinska Institutet, NOVUM, S-141 86

What the Experts Say
  • When phytochemicals are added to the diet, the
    capacity of human genes to protect and restore
    optimal health is far greater than previously
  • McDaniel M.D., McAnalley, Ph.D., Journal of the
    National Academy for Child Development The Role
    of Phytochemicals in Optimal Health, 1997 Vol.
    11, No. 1

What the Experts Say (Continued)
  • The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension
    (DASH) diet substantially lowers blood pressure
    and reduces blood lipid levels. ... When compared
    with the control diet, the DASH diet is higher in
    flavonols, flavanones, flavan-3-ols,
    beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lycopene,
    luteinzeaxanthin, and phytosterols...It
    therefore is possible that the health benefits of
    the DASH diet are partially attributable to the
    phytochemicals and might extend beyond
    cardiovascular disease risk reduction.

    the dietary approaches to stop hypertension
    (DASH) diet is higher than in the control study

What the Experts Say (Continued)
...fruits and vegetable phytochemical extracts
exhibit strong antioxidant and antiproliferative
activities ...from the combination of
phytochemicals...the additive and synergistic
effects of a "complex mixture" of
phytochemicals...are responsible for these the
benefits...no single antioxidant can replace the
combination of natural phytochemicals....

Importance of Diet
Longevity is associated with increased
consumption of fruits and vegetables(1)
Chemicals in plants are called Phytochemicals.
Scores of common plant foods, spices, and herbs
have been shown to have metabolic activity in
humans and have therefore been dubbed
phytonutrients. These may be grouped into 7 class
es terpenes, phenols, polysaccharides,
organosulfurs, organic acids, amines and lipids.
Some are antioxidants Some support elimination/de
toxification Some modulate immune function Some
modulate hormone function (1) 1998 University o
f Naples Italy
Importance of Diet
Men and women whose diets are high in fruits and
vegetables were shown to have lower rates of
angina, arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, cirrhosis,
gall stones, heart attack, kidney stones and
peptic ulcers. Epidemiology March 1998 Vol. 9, N
o 2 p 208
Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity.
ORAC is a test tube analysis that measures the
total antioxidant power of foods and herbs.
High ORAC foods help our body to prevent most of
the common diseases of aging, including cancer
and heart disease.
Dark greens, brightly colored plant foods and
spices have the highest ORAC scores.
3,500 to 5,000 ORAC units are proven to have a
significant impact on plasma and tissue
antioxidant capacity. Generally, at least 7-9 se
rvings of dark greens and brightly colored fruits
and vegetables are needed to reach this level.
Differing Antioxidant Activities
The Super Greens Spirulina
Spirulina contains scores of vitamins, minerals,
amino acids, enzymes and phytonutrients.
Spirulina is 65-70 amino acid proteins.
It is rich in B vitamins, iron, chromium,
selenium and essential fatty acids.
Spirulina is an excellent prebiotic.
Prebiotics support friendly digestive organisms.
The Super Greens Chlorella
Chlorella is a unique water green algae which
contains high concentration of chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll reduces the absorption of carcinogens
(heterocyclic amines, polycyclic hydrocarbons,
and aflatoxin). Chlorella assists in heavy metal
and pesticide detoxification.
The Super Green Barley Grass
The most nutritious of the green grasses.
Barley grass contains a multitude of enzymes.
Barleys unique antioxidant, 2-0
glycosylisovitexin, is reported to have
antioxidant activity equal or superior to vitamin
E. It contains 13 times as much carotene as carro
ts, 55 times as much vitamin C as apples, and 5
times as much iron as spinach.
The Super Greens Spinach, Kale and Parsley
Dark green leafies are nutrient dense in
vitamins, minerals, carotenes, and the amine
chlorophyll. Dark greens promote alkalinization
, buffering excess acid. A rich source of lutein
and zeaxanthin for retinal/macula health.
Carotenoids Carrots and Tomatoes
Terpene rich foods high in orange and red
carotenoids, like beta-carotene and lycopene,
reduce the risk of many cancers.
The Cruciferous Vegetables
These are rich in organosulfur phytonutrient
isothiocyanates, like sulphorafane, and indoles,
such as Indole-3-carbinol or IC3.
Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussel
sprouts assist phase I and II detoxification in
the liver, most notably metabolizing toxic
estrogens. Thus regular cruciferous intake may he
lp prevent certain types of uterine, cervical,
prostate and breast cancers.
The Berries
Blueberries, raspberries, tart dark cherries and
deep purple plums/prunes are the highest scoring
ORAC fruits. Berries are rich in pigmented phenol
s flavonoids and anthocyanins.
Phenols help protect the cardio-vascular system,
the brain, and the retina/macula.
Grape seed extracts and pine bark extracts are
powerful antioxidants shown to inhibit
pre-cancerous lesions. Raspberries are high in el
lagic acid, shown to lower cancer risk.
More Phenol Flavonoids
  • Quercetin, found in green apple skins and onions,
    is a noted powerful antioxidant and
  • Green tea contains several catechins that protect
    against heart and gum disease.
  • Red wine is rich in the phenol stillbene
    resveratrol, which is thought to be largely
    responsible for the French Paradox.
  • PhytoActive is a broad spectrum of tea, fruit
    and vegetable extracts of concentrated
    phytonutrients of all the colors.

The Prebiotics
Friendly bacteria may prevent cancerous tumors,
inactive viruses, produce natural antibodies and
vitamins, and reduce cholesterol.
Prebiotics support the growth of friendly
bacteria. Spirulina is a prebiotic, as are the po
lysaccharide soluble fibers from fruit pectin,
rice bran, and oat beta-glucan.
The Plant Enzymes
Amylase, lipase, cellulase, lactase, protease,
bromelain and papain. These help digest starches,
fats, cellulose, milk, sugar and proteins,
respectively. These also tend to lower inflammato
ry proteins in the blood and tissue fluids.
Soluble and Insoluble Fibers
Rice Bran is a phytonutrient and micro-nutrient
dense soluble fiber polysaccharide.
Apple pectin polysaccharide soluble fiber binds
toxins and excess bile for elimination, which
helps lower cancer risk and cholesterol.
Oat beta-glucan is the most active ingredient in
oat bran in lowering cholesterol and has immune
modulation properties.
Lecithin 20 PC
Phosphatidyl choline (PC) is concentrated in the
brain and the myelin sheets. Lecithin is a lipotr
opic (fat mover) assisting in reducing the risk
of coronary heart disease and fatty liver.
PC helps maintain memory by optimizing choline
Herbs and Spices
Milk Thistle flavins support liver regeneration
and function. Cynarin from artichoke supports the
liver as well. Red beet root terpene betacyns su
pport both liver and kidney function.
Cinnamon powder organic acids help normalize
blood sugar. Aloe leaf 100-1 concentrate is rich
in polysaccharide glyco-protiens with properties
that promote healing.
Phytonutrient Bioavailability
...the effort to understand the health benefits
of plant foods... is the characterization of
their physiologically active constituents, the
phytochemicals...As our knowledge grows...we will
learn how best to create new products through
altering their concentrations, combinations
and/or their bioavailability.

Phytonutrient Bioavailability (continued)
  • ...antioxidants, which are found in many
    phytochemicals,... are biologically unstable,
    poorly soluble in water, and poorly distributed
    to target sites... we strongly advocate serious
    consideration of the bioavailability of dietary
    supplements... to improve their bioavailability
