Is drinking 100% pure fruit juices like eating fresh fruit? It would seem so. According to a study presented atEsperimental Biology 2011, ongoing in these days a Washington DC., by researchers at the University of California at Davis, if i juices are 100% natural, or prepared exclusively with fruit, would give the same benefits from fresh fruit while also preventing many diseases.
The study, coordinated by Dianne Hyson, focused on 60 studies carried out since 2005 and showed that i pure fruit juices would retain many components typical of fresh fruits and how these would therefore represent a valid aid in the prevention of cancers and cardiovascular diseases: "While it is universally accepted that the intake of fruit and vegetables is protective, there is no clarity on the benefits of consuming fruit juices - said Hyson. - The analysis of scientific evidence indicates that 100% fruit juices retain important bioactive components that can promote good health and aid in disease prevention ".
In particular, studies have focused on some fruit juices that are definitely beneficial for our body, such as blueberry, which helps reduce urinary tract infections and improve blood circulation, the grape and apple juice, which help prevent age-related cognitive problems, the pomegranate juice, which is a good adjuvant in the reduction of prostate cancer, and those of orange and grapefruit, important weapons for fighting cancers of the respiratory and digestive systems.
But that's not all, according to the study fruit juices - just like fresh fruit - would also have a high antioxidant power, which helps in the prevention of stress, del cancer and aging.
At this point a question arises spontaneously, but if the orange juice loses many of its properties only after a few minutes from squeezing, it is possible that the can fruit juices guarantee the same benefits as fresh fruit?
