MICRONUTRIENTS

Fruits and vegetables are a valuable source of vitamins, minerals and fibre.


Multiple studies have shown that a diet high in fruits and vegetables is conducive to good health and can help prevent chronic disease and early death. These foods also contain special nutrients called phytonutrients (or plant nutrients) that give us health benefits over and above those that we would expect. Each group of phytonutrients has variety of functions and varying effects on our health. One of it is control our immune system. In next project we are going to look closely how vitamins and minerals effect our immune system.
