Eat Fruit

The Fifth Petal in the Vida Lotus System is to Eat a plant-based diet.

Everyone loves fruit. And the human digestive system is clearly designed for digesting it easily. We produce in our saliva the exact digestive enzymes needed for digesting fruit. The small intestine is specially designed to absorb the amino acids, vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients from the fruit pulp. The large intestine is specially designed to absorb water from the fruit pulp.
