Strasbourg, France, All fruit juices have their own benefits, whether made only from one type of fruit or a mixture of several kinds of fruit. But to get the maximum benefits of juice, a combination of the following 7 pieces proved most beneficial for the heart.
Fruit juice concoction called this supersmoothie among others consists of 4 types of fruit that is quite popular and readily available in supermarkets everywhere. The four fruits are grapes, apples and 2 types of berries that is blueberry and stawberry.
Enhancements may sound a bit strange, among others cowberry or lingonberry, red fruit that is still closely related to cranberries. There was also a Acerola, and cherry-like fruit containing vitamin C 30 times more than oranges.
The latter mixture is also somewhat strange, that chokeberry or aronia a kind of American blackberry is touted as the world’s most healthy berries. There are 3 variants of chokeberry, but used in a mixture of variants supersmoothie is black.
To obtain approximately 200 ml of juice supersmoothie, the mixture is as follows, as quoted from Dailymail, Sunday (08/05/2011).
- 126 ml grape juice (about 30 items)
- 20 ml blueberries (about 15 items)
- 20 ml stawberry (about 9 points)
- 20 ml apple (about half a point)
- 10 ml lingonberry (about 8 cloves)
- 8 ml Acerola (about 5 grains)
- 8 ml chokeberry (about 5 grains).
This recipe is obtained in a study at the University of Strasbourg, which compares 13 different species of fruit juice combinations. When tested on pigs, the most effective combination supersmoothie maintain healthy arteries or veins walls.
The findings are then tested in 80 volunteers and found that the results are not much different. Giving supersmoothie juice can increase blood flow, so that it can maintain a balance of nutrients and oxygen distribution to various organs in the body.
The researchers believe, the benefit is obtained from the content of polyphenols contained in each fruit used. Some polyphenols even known to ward off free radicals, one of the trigger cell damage, premature aging and cancer.
“However, we do not know for sure why certain fruits have a higher polyphenol. A clear, more diverse fruit we eat, the more diverse the benefits,” said Tracy Parker of the British Heart Foundation, commented on the results of the study.
Parker also reminded, however, fruit juices contain less fiber than fresh fruit. Calorie content is also higher because it is often added to sugar, so it is not advisable to drink more than 5 times a day.
