Foods in the white color range have a variety of health benefits. White fruits and vegetables have been shown to support healthy enzyme function, maintain healthy bone metabolism, and help preserve arterial function.

Including white foods in your diet gives you the phytonutrients allicin and quercetin, plus many others. Allicin is found in onions and garlic and is most helpful in supporting heart and  cholesterol health. Quercetin is commonly found in apples, onions, and green tea and is a member of the bioflavonoid family of phytonutrients, which function as antioxidants and help vitamin C perform in the body. Quercetin is especially beneficial in promoting blood vessel health and supporting heart health.
