Faculty & Staff Wellness Program: Know Your Micronutrients Part 3 - Phytonutrients and Antioxidants
These important micronutrients come mainly in the form of colorful fruits and vegetables, which is why it is so important to eat a rainbow of produce. Most Americans eat less than 10 different fruits and vegetables per week, limiting their intake of these powerful micronutrients. The number one source of antioxidants in America is actually black coffee(!) Learn why we want more lycopene, beta carotene and allicin in our daily diets, and what foods contain more antioxidants than coffee.
