Fruit and Vegetable Juices and Alzheimer's Disease

Here's another reason to drink your V-8 or any other vegetable or fruit juice of your choice. A recent study published in the American Journal of Medicine, concluded that the risk for Alzheimer's disease was reduced among people who drank fruit and vegetable juices, three or more times a week compared with those who drank these juices less than once per week.

The polyphenols in fruits and vegetables may offer stronger neuroprotection than antioxidants in vitamin pills. Polyphenols from apple and citrus juices, such as querctin, cross the blood-brain barrier and protect the brain cells against hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is believed to mediate the oxidative reaction caused by beta amyloid peptide which leads to Alzheimer's disease.

Hi there, people need to wake up to your comments. As a matter of fact years ago people knew how to eat well but older generations have slacked off passing nutrition facts, guidelines and strict habits so now today, more people are buying into disguised vitamins and minerals that aren't complete natural antioxidants or blockers against diseases. I tend to eat fruits and vegetables, fish, breads and stay away from radicals and processed foods, but I would like your comment on a list of Fruit and Vegetables that can have direct improvement on the factors of degradation of brain motor skills, forgetfulness, parkinsons, alzheimer, rheumatoid arthritis, dementia among many others.

For now I'll eat like my ancestors before 1903, its kept me healthy so far.

I agree, i have recently done research into healthy eating since my health is deteriorating. I think parents should pass on the information of nutrition to their kids. My parents did not and its so important.

My best purchase was a blender to make smoothies, a nice easy way for your 5 a day, and all before lunch.

The principle of passing down information from one generation to another is essential.

I am a vauxhall part breaker, and i will be sure to pass on all of my tricks to my replacement before i retire, or sooner. If i don't then my vauxhall part business would not continue passed my retirement.

Anyway nice post

Juices are great for any mental condition, but so are healthy salads. They boost metabolism and fight processes involved in senility.

I agree that polyphenols in fruits and vegetables are better than antioxidant pills. Free radicals has been associated with Alzheimer's disease that's why antioxidants can be very helpful.
