So with phytonutrients often being mentioned as something Soylent lacks, I figured I would revive the topic.
We can all agree that they are basically not essential to life, otherwise we would call them vitamins but with claims and some studies showing health benefits from various phytonutrients/chemicals… I figured it would be interresting to compile what was known already here on the forums… A list of different phytonutrients and their (claimed) benefits, related studies, how much would be needed for benefit, how they work and sources (prices?)
Hope you guys can help compile a list (and already existing lists) so we can talk about what is known and weed out psudoscience.
If something is found to be very important to health in the long run eventually, people could choose to supplement or perhaps a future Phytosoylent could be worked on
