Apple Juice, Apples Get an A+ from Researchers
(NAPSA) Heard the saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away?" Now scientific research finds
that 100 percent apple juice can, too.
University of California-Davis researchers have discovered that "phytonutrients" (active
plant components) in apple juice and apples help slow the oxidation of "bad" (LDL) cholesterol
that can lead to clogged arteries and heart disease.
Evaluating 25 adults over 12 weeks, UC-Davis researchers found that daily consumption
of 11/2 cups apple juice or two apples slowed the detrimental LDL oxidation process. This
first-ever clinical study of apple products, published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, is another
reason why 100 percent apple juice and apple products should be among everyone's five daily
servings of fruits and vegetables.
