The Benefit of Drinking Fruit and Vegetable Juice

September 13, 2006

fruit-juice.jpgI am on my way to Copenhagen, Denmark for the annual convention of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes till the 18th of this month… and for this reason I may not be able to update my blog daily for the next few days.  But let me share with you this new data which I thought of sharing because while waiting in the lounge, I realized that my colleagues were drinking diet coke while I opted for a freshly squeezed orange juice.  I am a diet coke drinker but now I’m giving juices a second look.

Just yesterday while scanning through the different articles that would interest me…I came across this new data published in the September issue of the American Journal of Medicine that has somehow changed the way I look at juices. This involved at participants who drank fruit or vegetable juices for the 10 year period and determined the incidence of dementia among those who drank and those who did not.  This involved 1800 subjects and their mental function were tested every 2 years.

The results are great news for fruit and vegetable juice drinkers:

  1. The incidence of Alzheimer’s was 76 percent lower for those who drank juice three or more times a week than for those who drank juice less than once a week.
  2. Dementia was 16 percent lower for those drinking juice once or twice a week

It is theorized that the benefit is due to a strong antioxidant present in both fruit and vegetables called polyphenols which is present in the outer skin or the peel. So when you process the whole fruit or vegetable, these substances are incorporated into the juice. It is believed that the polyphenols may prevent the deposition of proteins in the brain that can lead to Alzheimer’s.

The authors however concluded that more research need to be done whether there is a specific juice that has more beneficial effect than others. 

I like the way the authors summed up their data that if you like to drink juice, there’s another reason why you should BUT not to the point of saying: ‘If I drink orange juice in the morning, I don’t have to do anything else. ”

A Juice a Day May Keep You Healthy All The Way!

    I like it too with your parting comments. Surely, drinking juice is part of the comprehensive approach in making ourselves physically healthy.

    here in Cebu there is Thristy – an outlet that sells fresh juice. However it is expensive. The smallest is 50 peso.

    Thats 1/5 of the minimum wage.
