Limoneira cross-tabulated 57 health concerns including the need to increase good cholesterol, prevent cardiovascular disease or ease insomnia, as well as desired outcomes, including improving energy levels or reducing wrinkles, with 74 fruits and vegetables. All of these foods, which can be found in the produce section of most grocery stores, contain 12 essential vitamins and 11 essential minerals that address these concerns or help with desired outcomes. By selecting a concern or outcome, the app then generates foods in the produce aisle that can help consumers achieve their health goals.

The Nature’s Pharmacy App can be found on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Real Foods – Not Supplements

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force doesn’t support vitamin and mineral supplements to ward off disease. People should get most of their nutrients from food, advises the federal government’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Furthermore, we know that consumers are quick to turn to the pharmacy or supplement aisle to aide or prevent common ailments, but medical research has shown that real food can be more effective. Many nutrients in food promote health and protect our bodies from disease.

Eating whole, nutritious foods is important because their unique substances work synergistically to create an effect that can’t be replicated by taking a supplement.
Although our bodies only need small amounts of vitamins and minerals, they’re vital for our health. However, Western diets — high in processed foods and low in whole foods like fresh produce — are typically deficient in vitamins and minerals. Such deficiencies can substantially increase our risk of disease.

The growth of functional foods is set to outpace the growth of conventional foods around the world, across both developed and emerging markets globally. Three-fourths of U.S. consumers believe healthy foods and beverages can be used to increase the quality of their lives. In addition, more than a quarter of Americans believe functional foods and beverages can be used in place of some medicines.
