Phyto-Nutrients are the most significant finding in nutritional history. We would venture to say that if you put all other discoveries together this discovery would dwarf them. These disease-preventing compounds that naturally occur in whole unprocessed and unheated food reveal the magnificence of nature’s genius. We now know that nature planned for us a way to recover from the poor lifestyle choices that we were going to make. Further, these phyto-chemicals are otherwise known as phyto-nutrients, phyto-foods or even netraceuticals and they contain health building elements which enable your immune system to strengthen your overall body/mind. We will review many of these nutrients and where you derive them from.

The importance of many nutrients were discovered quite by accident when dietary shortages led to physical symptom. In the days of the roman empire, soldiers stationed along the Rhine River suffered from loose teeth and bleeding gums when they ate the local fare. Then they discovered an herb called sorrel - that would heal their gum problems. Century's later British sailors suffered from the same symptoms until citrus was added to their shipboard staples. It wasn't until much later that scientists recognized that vitamin C was the substance for healing their symptoms of scurvy.

I've often wondered, "What exactly is in non-dairy creamer?" I've never been a coffee drinker - can't stand the smell and I know it's not good for you, but I have noticed others pouring this "dairy substitute" into their mornin' cup-o-joe. it's called "non-dairy creamer" and any reasonable person would conclude there is NO dairy in it. This delineation is important for people who are lactose intolerant, have other sensitivities to milk products such as sinus and mucus congestion or asthma, or for those who simply avoid dairy altogether. It also says on the label there are ZERO trans fats - you know, those artificial, man-made fats being banned (finally), it seems, in every city across this nation? These are two things thankfully lacking in this product that make it appear to be the cream (in a way) of the crop; moving in a somewhat healthy direction. But let's take a closer look.

“Milk: It does A Body Good” no longer holds the glamour it once did. More and more research is showing that dairy products, including yogurt, are not the health panacea that the industry has led us to believe for several generations. In fact, the reverse is proving itself to be the truth.

"Got milk?"  We see it all the time, on T-shirts, television commercials and advertisements. "Milk...it does a body good," we are told by the media and the dairy industry. If you don't drink milk, where are you going to get your calcium? Will you end up with osteoporosis? What about vitamin D? These are the kinds of questions that immediately pop into most people's minds when it is suggested that they or somebody else stop consuming milk. I remember being angry and confused when I first discovered information that seemed to prove that milk and dairy products were not the healthy foods I believed them to be. As a child and young teenager, I religiously drank my milk, thinking that I was doing my body a favor.
