Why We Sing Praises To Fruits and Vegetables: The Science Behind Balance of Nature

We don’t push fruits and vegetables for nothing! The bedrock of any thriving business is the solid research that upholds its products. We don’t fall short in that department. Scientific studies unitedly show that eating fruits and vegetables is tied to improved health and a reduced risk of major diseases. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Read on to see just how good for you fruits and vegetables really are—and why we’ll never stop singing their praises.

Here are some studies that specifically document the health benefits of Balance of Nature Fruits & Veggies:

  • A study conducted by Pavlov State Medical University (St. Petersburg, Russia) on the anticarcinogenic effects of Balance of Nature: View Study Document
  • The effects of Balance of Nature upon lactation, a study by St. Petersburg (Russia) State Pediatric Medical Academy, Pathologic Physiology Department: View Study Document
  • The effect of Balance of Nature on patients with cirrhosis (clinical trial): View Trial Document

And that’s just the beginning! Fruits and vegetables are known for positively impacting a myriad of conditions and diseases. To name a few:

Heart disease

Research from the United States, United Kingdom, and the Netherlands suggests that the role of fruits and vegetables in preventing heart disease is a protective one. Risk reduction was estimated as high as 20-40 percent among individuals who consumed substantial amounts of fruits and vegetables. People who were already diagnosed with coronary heart disease were able to reduce blockage modestly through exercise and an extremely low-fat, vegan-like diet rich in fruits and vegetables.

Cancer

Four in ten cancers may be preventable—and diet plays a huge role in reducing—or increasing—the risk.1 Not surprisingly, fruits and vegetables contribute to risk reduction.

Also not surprisingly, sugary drinks, fast food, and bacon do just the opposite. For cancer prevention, the World Cancer Research Fund/American Institute for Cancer Research recommends eating at least five servings of a variety of non-starchy vegetables and/or fruits every day.2 A recent report concluded that fruits and vegetables are particularly effective in preventing mouth, pharynx and larynx, oesophagus and stomach, and lung cancers.3

Studies involving patients who were taking dietary supplements in place of fruits and vegetables ended early due to a high mortality rate among the supplement users. Researchers concluded that dietary supplements (vitamin supplementation) do not have the same positive effects as eating real fruits and vegetables. Balance of Nature is real, whole fruits and vegetables!
