A phytochemical is a natural plant substance that works with nutrients and dietary fiber to protect against disease. Research suggests that phytochemicals working together and with other nutrients found in fruits, vegetables, and nuts may help slow the aging process and reduce the risk of many diseases, including cancer, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, cataracts, and Urinary tract infection.
