Plant Pigments, Phytonutrients and Antioxidants

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Plant Pigments, Phytonutrients and Antioxidants?

so recently someone brought up a question they wanted to get the benefit of all these phytonutrients but they don’t like to consume cruciferous vegetables so I wanted to do a quick video just to explain that because you don’t have to consume cruciferous vegetables now the benefit of cruciferous is the amount of phytonutrients but those photo nutrients are in all vegetables and fruits and berries so I’m going to talk about plant pigments in general the the things that give different plants their color so you have all these different vegetables that are yellow red orange green purple and the plants purpose of these pigments is to protect them against viruses bacteria microorganisms as well as UV radiation all these plants are involved in photosynthesis so you have the sunlight that combines with the plant to create all these different chemical reactions and of course you’re doing with radiation so part of the function of these pigments is to protect the plant against the harmful part of that radiation but the cool thing is you can get protection against the UV radiation from the Sun as well if you consume some of these vegetables so let’s talk about a few of them okay so yellow squash for example so I went to the farmers market this weekend and I bought some squash and we sauteed it with some butter sea salt it was delicious but these yellow pigments have the ability to stimulate T cells and B cells within the immune system and decrease the risk of certain types of cancer so I’m not going to get into the chemical names of these phytonutrients the carotenoids like lutein things like that all you need to know is that the different colors have different chemical phytonutrients that give different effects so like the red pigment and tomatoes for example can decrease risk of certain types of cancer to the lung heart and prostate then you have the orange pigment which is like the pre vitamin A which can then turn into the active form of vitamin A retinol but in like egg yolks for example you have the active form which happens to be orange and yellow then we have the green pigment which is in all the leafy greens the wheatgrass which has an ability to repair two in a and decrease the risk of certain types of cancer then we have the purple pigment which is an eggplant cabbage it’s antibacterial antiviral have the ability to detoxify the liver and will decrease your risk for cancer so the basic purpose of these colorful pigments are to help the plant survive but when we consume them we can also survive better thanks for watching we have purple pigments which would be an eggplant it would be in which has properties of anti cabbage cabbage okay so now I got to wait till I stop the hiccups [Music]
