Fruits and vegetables can help lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and digestive problems. They also have a positive effect on blood sugar, which can help keep our appetite in check. But, 9 out of 10 Americans aren’t getting the recommended daily amount. Are you?
The Doctors are joined by Michael Kuech and Kristel Degroot, co-founders of Your Super, who say there is a good chance you are not getting enough fruits and vegetables. Michael was diagnosed with cancer at 24 and says Kristel helped him by improving his diet with organic superfoods, like berries, leafy greens, seeds, and vegetables that contain a high volume of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. Antioxidants are man-made or natural substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage.
But how can parents get kids to eat more of these kinds of foods, especially if you have a picky eater at home?
"To help busy moms keep themselves and their families healthy, our company, Your Super, has created organic nutrient-dense superfood and protein powders," Michael says. Kristel adds, "All of them have a specific health benefit ranging from immunity to healthy skin."
Studies show that 90 percent of Americans are vitamin/mineral deficient and 40 percent of Americans want to eat more plant-based, something Michael says is easy to improve. He explains you can sprinkle their superfood and protein powders on foods and beverages like water, smoothies, oatmeal, snacks, dips, dressings, as well as baked goods. Also, Your Super is available in on-the-go packets, which is great for busy parents.
