Orchard Essentials & Garden Essentials

Dietary diversity is proving to be nature's way to "keep on keeping on." According to a long-term study of 10,000 men and women, eating more food groups lowers the death rate (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 57 (1993): 434-440). Scientists are discovering what ancient peoples already knew--that natural food can be your best medicine.

Fruits and vegetables contain protective nutrients that provide their own immunity against disease, pollution, and other dangers. What scientists discovered was that these same "phytonutrients" in the human body can help restore proper blood pressure, cholesterol levels, detoxify the blood, along with many other outstanding benefits.

Simply put, phytonutrients improve total body health, giving it more power to heal itself of all kinds of ailments, and to prevent future breakdowns. Even if medical treatment is necessary, eating more fruits and vegetables has definitely proven to play a major role in becoming and staying well.

Why Garden/Orchard Essentials?

Most people aren't likely to eat a minimum of two servings of fruit and three servings of vegetables each day to receive the protection they need. And unless these foods are fresh, raw and grown on mineral-balanced soil, even 10 servings may not be enough.

By carefully dehydrating large amounts of fruits and vegetables, significant amounts of fiber, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients are retained, and come to you in a convenient capsule or chewable tablet form!

Do Americans Eat Enough Phytonutrients?

A five-year study of 11,000 Americans reports that on an average day, 45% eat no fruit, or even fruit juice. 48% either eat no vegetable, or include one serving (like fried potatoes), Americans average one fruit and 1.8 servings of vegetables (3+ are recommended by the National Cancer Institute), Only 9% eat the recommended amounts of fruits/vegetables, (American Journal of Public Health 80:1443, 1990)

What do Phytonutrients do?

Reduce free radical damage to cells, helping to prevent aging. Increase our resistance to disease and tissue/organ breakdown. Help the body deal with already-established disease conditions. Improve circulation and blood quality.
