Glow foods are those that are rich in vitamins and minerals, such as fresh fruits and green-leafy vegetables. They are essential for keeping the body healthy. They are known to make the hair shine, the skin glow, the bones strong and the eyes sparkle.
Two other essential substances found in glow foods are fiber and antioxidants. Soluble fiber aids in good digestion, lowers bad cholesterol and maintains blood sugar levels. The antioxidants, including vitamins A, C, E and selenium, help the body fight cell damage and strengthen the immune system. Generally, the recommended daily intake for vegetables is five servings. Two to three servings of fruit are recommended per day.
