Derived from the Greek word phyto (plant) and nutrient (a constituent of food necessary for normal physiological function), phytonutrients—also known as phytochemicals—are natural, bioactive compounds found in plant foods. Most phytonutrients overlap and complement one another, boasting complete benefits that include antioxidant effects and immune system stimulation. In short, specific phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables work together with other nutrients to protect your health.
More than 900 different phytonutrients have been found in plant foods. And even more will be discovered in coming years. These protective plant compounds are an emerging area of health and nutrition, with new research reported almost daily.
