Phytochemicals: guardians of our health. Medical Journal: Journal of the American Dietetic Association 1997 Oct; 97(10 Supplement 2): S199-S204 Author: Craig WJ Abstract: Consuming a diet rich in plant foods will provide a milieu of phytochemicals, nonnutritive substances in plants that possess health-protective benefits. Nuts, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables contain an abundance of phenolic compounds, terpenoids, pigments, and other natural antioxidants that have been associated with protection from and/or treatment of chronic disease such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and hypertension as well as other medical conditions.
