Super beneficial fruits and vegetables

 Today, extensive research has been done on the practicality of fruits and vegetables with yellow, orange and green colors.

 The beneficial effects of these plants have been attributed to their fiber content and some compounds in them such as flavonoids and antioxidant pigments.

 Pigments in fruits and vegetables such as carrots, radishes, tomatoes, spinach, oranges, tangerines, apricots, mangoes, peaches, nectarines, melons, watermelons, pumpkins, peas, sweet corn, and flavonoids in soybeans, tea, cocoa, broccoli,  Garlic, turmeric, sour cherries and many berries are found in abundance.

 These compounds can neutralize the harmful radicals resulting from the oxidation reactions created in the body and reduce the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases, asthma, arthritis and vision disorders.

 It is necessary to know that heat or short-term cooking of colorful vegetables and fruits in a small amount of vegetable oil can increase the absorption of pigments several times.

 For example, the absorption power of tomato pigment in its processed products such as paste and sauce is high. Also, mixing milk with carrot juice will help better absorption of carrot pigments due to milk fat.

 Of course, it is not bad to know that receiving antioxidant compounds from the diet in a short period of time will not have much effect on health or preventing the occurrence of diseases.

 Taking too much of these compounds does not have any side effects or symptoms of poisoning, and only excess of yellow and orange fruits causes skin color change, especially in the areas of the hands, feet, and face.
