An Apple A Day: Organic Apple Juice

 

image

In September we introduced our organic juice bar. Our most popular juice is apple. The juice is squeezed from fresh organic red delicious apples. You can drink it straight or mix with carrot. Or, why not try Carrot Beet Apple or Apple Parsley Pear? They’re all great, and really good for you, loaded with natural vitamins, antioxidants and flavor.

  9. Most recently, Dr. Shea’s research team studied 21 patients between the ages of 72 to 93. Each of the patients was diagnosed with moderate-to-severe AD. He gave them two four-ounce glasses of apple juice each day for a month. After just 30 days, his team noted major changes in mood and behavior. Changes included improvement in anxiety, depression and delusion.

    “In addition to changes in memory, there’s a change in mood that often accompanies AD,” says Dr. Shea. “We found that people receiving apple juice displayed fewer of the symptoms. They were calmer, less agitated, and at the end of the day, had a better quality of life.”

    His findings were published in the June 2010 issue of the American Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias.

    In a study last year, Dr. Shea tested lab mice in a series of maze trials. He gave them the equivalent of two glasses of apple juice each day for 30 days. He then put them through a series of traditional tests.

    The results backed up his theory. The mice produced less “beta amyloid” – the protein fragment which forms “senile plaques” – which are often found in the brains of people with AD.
    “Apple juice keep[s] one’s mind functioning at its best,” says Dr. Shea. “It may delay key aspects of AD.”

    His team has also showed that apple juice increases the production of a brain transmitter called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine helps slow the mental decline of people with AD. In that same study, he investigated whether apple juice could also improve memory. He put mice through a series of memory and learning maze tests. The mice who drank apple juice performed better on the memory tests.

    “The study show[ed] that consumption of apple juice can help reduce problems associated with memory loss,” concluded Dr. Shea.

    While Dr. Shea is one of the pioneers in this field, his evidence does not stand alone. There are several other research scientists publishing supportive findings. One such scientist is Dr. Eric Larson from the Group Health Center for Health Studies in Seattle, Washington.

    Juice Beats Out Whole Fruit

    Dr. Larson concluded a huge study, observing 2,000 people over the course of 10 years. He reported that people who drink fruit juice three times a week reduced the risk of AD by a whopping 76 percent. People who drank it twice a week reduced their risk by 16 percent.
    Surprisingly, the best benefits came from drinking fruit juice, as opposed to whole fruit. Dr. Larson theorizes this is because of the higher antioxidant quota in juice. According to him, all-natural fruit juice uses the core, seeds and skin of the fruit. These are the parts of the fruit that have the highest concentration of natural antioxidants. It’s those parts that people usually skip – and thus miss the best antioxidant benefits.

    He also notes that fruit juice contains more antioxidants than vitamin C or E supplements.
    “The brain accumulates damage due to oxidation as we age,” says Dr. Larson. “If you protect the brain from that damage, you protect the person from AD.”

    Team member Dr. Qi Dai says “drinking fruit juices was [linked] with a decreased risk of AD. These findings suggest that fruit juices play an important role in delaying AD.”
    It’s important to note that the team used all-natural, pure fruit juices. Those juices shouldn’t be confused with high-sugar, “fruit” beverages, which only include a limited percentage of actual fruit juice.

    Build Your Own Brain-Boosting Diet!

    Many other studies say that apples fight AD. Adding apple juice to your diet is one safe and simple solution that may offer huge benefits.

    But apples don’t just benefit your brain. They also help maintain good heart health.

    While apples are a great source of brain protection, many other foods also promote good brain health. You can combine these with a glass or two of apple juice each day to optimize brain-health benefits. Keep in mind that consuming too many fruit juices each day means additional sugar in your diet, which can affect insulin levels. Most AD studies limited daily apple juice consumption to just two four-ounce glasses.

    Several key factors make up a good brain-healthy diet. The Alzheimer’s Association suggests that an effective brain-boosting plan should include:
    Antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies;
    Vitamins E, D and B-12; and
    Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.

    Brain Healthy Foods

    Dark skinned fruits and veggies offer brain-boosting benefits. Fish that are rich in omega-3s are also great sources. Opt for mackerel, salmon and tuna.

    Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, MA supports this theory. Tufts research says antioxidant-rich foods fight the onset of AD. Foods with high levels of antioxidants prevent short-term memory loss. They also boost brain cell activity and protect blood vessels against oxygen damage.

    Supercharge Your Brain

    It’s easy to build an antioxidant-rich diet. The following foods are guaranteed to deliver a rich stream of antioxidant fuel. Use them to supercharge your brain power!

    Blackberries
    Blueberries
    Broccoli florets
    Brussels sprouts
    Cherries
    Eggplant
    Grapes, red
    Kale
    Onion
    Oranges
    Plums
    Prunes
    Raisins
    Raspberries
    Red bell peppers
    Spinach
    Strawberries

    A brain-healthy diet is easy to build and the benefits are great. Anyone who wants to enjoy brain health well into their old age will be smart enough to incorporate these simple foods into their diet. So don’t delay: start building today to enjoy better brain function tomorrow.
