EmpowHER Shares FREE Resources on Good Nutrition to Promote Better Health Among Women

Incorporating the Right Nutrition Plan Can Improve Heart Health, Memory, Energy and Reduce Cancer Risk

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - March 1, 2011) - In honor of National Nutrition Month®, EmpowHER is featuring free information on the benefits of healthy eating. Many health benefits come with incorporating good nutritional habits into a woman's diet, such as reducing the risk for disease, improving energy levels, boosting mood, lowering bad cholesterol, and improving memory.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fruits and vegetables contain essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber that may help protect against chronic diseases. Compared with people who consume a diet with only small amounts of fruits and vegetables, those who eat more generous amounts as part of a healthful diet are likely to have reduced risk of chronic diseases, including stroke and perhaps other cardiovascular diseases, and certain cancers.

"Good nutrition has the ability to positively impact our stress levels, our mood, our hormone levels, our skin, our weight, and the functioning of our heart," says Dr. Daemon Jones, a naturopathic physician, HERWriter for EmpowHER and author of Daelicious! Recipes for Vibrant Living. "The better choices we make about the foods we put in our body the better quality health we create."

Through EmpowHER's Healthy Eating page, women can learn to make healthy eating choices by watching videos from well-known nutrition experts, finding top foods for specific wellness concerns and accessing a full library of healthy recipes for virtually any occasion. The page also includes a survey that asks the question: "The USDA recommends 2-4 servings of fruit a day, how many do you have?" Of the over 130 respondents to the survey, 13% do not eat fruit and 31% only eat one serving a day (data as of 3/1/11).

"It is amazing how much of an impact our diet can have on our overall well-being," says Michelle King Robson, EmpowHER's Founder, Chairperson and CEO. "I know from experience that diet changes can be difficult to adjust to, but the reward is more than worth the struggle. And if you need motivation and support along the way, we have a caring diet community ready to help."
