Author/s: Issue: June, 2001
Apple juice is heart healthy, according to new research at University
of California at Davis.
The clinical research, published in the winter edition of Journal of Medicinal Food, found that
apple juice and apples had similar heart-health effects as red wine and tea. A 12-week study
with 25 healthy adults found that 12 ounces of 100% apple juice or two fresh apples per day
slowed oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which when oxidized, tends to clog arteries and increase
the risk of heart disease.
