The Disease-Fighting Power of Plants

Evidence shows the benefits of a plant-based include preventing, arresting and sometimes reversing chronic diseases. March is National Nutrition Month, so it's the perfect time to learn about the benefits of adding more plants to your diet.

  • A whole-food, plant-based diet is the only diet shown to reverse heart disease.
  • Feed your body with nutrient-rich plants to optimize both your weight and your health.
  • A plant-based diet, rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, reduces risk for cancer and heart disease.
  • Plants are our only source of fiber, which feeds beneficial bacteria in our gut biomes.

Join a CHIP (Complete Health Improvement Program) session or meet with a dietitian to discuss if a plant-based diet is for you.
