Fruit and Veg EBOOST We all know that EBOOST is chock full of essential vitamins and minerals. However, some people think that a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables is all a body needs. Don't get me wrong--we're not knocking fruits and veggies. EBOOST fans are some of the healthiest folks around. But have you ever wondered exactly how many servings you'd need to eat in order to match the nutrition in a single serving of EBOOST? We did, so we asked Dr Sharon Richter to put together a comparison for some of the major EBOOST ingredients. In case you don't have the patience to read the fine print, here's a summary. You can drink one glass of EBOOST, or you can eat 50g potatoes, 26 cups brussels sprouts, 7 cups bok choy, 3.8 cups papaya, 10 ears of corn, 67 cups celery, 4.2 cups of blackberries and 1.2 bananas. Unless you're living in a zoo, we think the choice is clear. (Disclaimer: EBOOST not recommended for gorillas, elephants and other animals. Only party animals need apply.)
