The best life insurance policy you can give yourself is sleep

Phytonutrients – what even are they?

They are never talked about in the mainstream media. If you follow nutrition then you will possibly have heard of them but all everyone talks about is macro nutrients and micro nutrients. We really need to know about phytonutients too. Phytonutrients was not even covered in my nutrition training.
