What benefits do fruits and vegetables have?
Fruits and vegetables contain lots of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other compounds called phytochemicals that are essential to good health. These are also the compounds supporting your general health, endurance and recovery.
Vegetables, in particular, are high in fibre. Fibre is a nutrient that helps lower cholesterol and helps keep your digestive system running smoothly as it contributes to your gut bacteria.

Apparently, fibre also helps to prevent constipation, while keeping blood sugar levels stable. Healthy blood sugar levels prevent hunger cravings which can prevent overeating and help to keep you feeling full for longer periods of time.
Fibre can also boost energy levels and reduce tiredness and fatigue. This means that by eating more vegetables, you are helping to improve your general health and well-being as well as your athletic performance.
