Fruit is the most important food. All fruit becomes alkaline in the body.  By eating more fruit and vegetables, which are high in anti oxidants, they help prevent and reduce damage to cells  by free radicals in your body. Free radicals are reactive compounds that damage DNA and suppress the immune system. Increasing organic fruit intake is the optimal way of taking in anti oxidants.

What is really important about your fruit intake is:

  • buy organic
  • always eat fruit on an empty stomach or before meals – Never after meals
  • never heat or cook fruit
  • if you need to drink fruit juice drink only fresh fruit juice. Not from cans. Eating whole fruit is better than drinking the juice
