New Evidence Ups The Ante On Fruit And Vegetable Intake Recommendations for Heart Health To 8 Servings Per Day!
The importance of fruits and vegetable consumption for overall health, maximal longevity, and warding off chronic disease is well known. We've been told for years now that we need to "strive for five" servings every day. But new research published in the European Heart Journal just raised the bar to 8 or more servings each day. They point out that the evidence from an observational study of over 300,000 people shows a 22% lower risk of dying from heart disease for those eating 8 servings of fruits and vegetables compared to those eating less than 3 servings a day.
The cardio-protective benefits of fruits and vegetables really aren't all that surprising. Thousands of studies have correlated the nutrients in fruits and vegetables with health, vitality, and longevity. It's an established fact that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is important for long-term health and functional longevity. The nutrients found in fruits and vegetables support everything from healthy immune response to protection from chronic diseases such as stroke, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and certain cancers. In fact, the heart health data has been so compelling for so long that as far back as 2003 the World Health Organization (WHO) established a recommendation of 5-6 servings of fruits and vegetables to lower the risk of CHD.
What's interesting about this new data is that it suggests that easting more than the recommended 5-6 may equate to an increased benefit on heart disease risk, something that was not clear in the past. Researchers looked at data collected from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study over an average of 8.4 years and found that for each additional serving, there was an associated 4 percent drop in fatal heart disease risk, up to as much as 22% lower for 8 servings.
Fruits and vegetables are important sources of not only fiber, vitamins, and minerals, but also key phytonutrients that include carotenoids, flavonoids, lipids and sterols. Carotenoids and flavonoids are fat-soluble and water-soluble (respectively) antioxidants that protect against disease and oxidation. Lipids and sterols provide important building blocks of cellular membranes and can act as cholesterol-lowering agents. These, along with fiber and other phytonutrients confer health and protective benefits for the entire body.
Unfortunately, due to the quick pace of the modern industrialized world, getting this sort of abundance of fruits and vegetables each day is difficult for most folks to achieve. In fact, it's been shown that 90% of us don't eat the recommended 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day let alone a cardio-protective eight.
The only way most of us will ever get anywhere near that level of phytonutrition in our diet is by combining good, whole food choices with great whole food supplements. And that's where we come in.
