The fruits and vegetables of today are really different than the ones our grandparents ate
Wilmington, NC (Vocus) July 22, 2009
Many of the fruits and vegetables we eat today contain only a fraction of the nutrients they contained nearly 100 years ago, making it harder than ever to fully benefit from the nine servings recommended per day. Dr. David Friedman , health expert on Lifetime Television's popular morning show, "The Balancing Act", recently described this problem and offered a simple solution from an unexpected source.
"The fruits and vegetables of today are really different than the ones our grandparents ate," explained Friedman on the July 20 episode of the show. "For instance, you would have to eat 26 apples today to equal the nutritional content of one apple from the year 1914, and eat 10 tomatoes to equal the nutritional content of one tomato from 1940."
To find food that has not lost its nutritional content over time, Friedman recommends looking to the ocean.
"Sea vegetables contain over 70 whole food vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, and have the same nutritional value as they did 100 years ago. Plus, sea vegetables do not contain the pesticides and chemicals often used in the cultivation of land-based fruits and vegetables," he said.
Sea vegetables also contain the only natural vegetable source of Vitamin D on the planet, and are an excellent source of calcium. But how can we add these nutrient-rich sea vegetables to our daily diets?
"If you live in Asia these vegetables can be found in grocery stores, markets and restaurants nearly everywhere," Friedman explained. "But for Americans, you primarily have to find them in supplements. This is why the supplement I formulated, Chews-4-Health , contains four mineral-rich sea vegetables--dulse, kelp, bladderwrack and nori. My research indicates they help nourish, strengthen and revitalize the body."
Friedman is a renowned chiropractic physician and doctor of naturopathy, author of three books and creator of the best-selling CD, "America's Unbalanced Diet." The product he formulated is a delicious, natural, chewable dietary supplement derived from 16 of the world's most nutrient-rich sources from land and sea.
