Fruits are full of vitamins and minerals and are full of health promoting fiber, anti-inflammatory, heart protective and cancer-fighting properties. The phytonutrients in fruits help our body cells to stay healthy, to repair and to fight diseases. Modern science is yet to discover all the phytonutrients in fruits.  

Fruits are the main sources for vitamin C and vitamin C is an important antioxidant to maintain optimal electron flow in our cells. "Health" occurs when there is an ample flow and interchange of electrons in our cells. Impaired or poor electron flow and interchange equals "disease". When the flow and interchange ceases entirely, our cells die. Oxidation, caused by free radicals in our body, involves the loss of electrons. Antioxidants counter the disease process caused by oxidation (loss of electrons) by supplying electrons.
