THE BEST JUICE FOR A HEALTHY HEART

Sunday Herald Sun - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

Fruit juice made from grapes, ap­ples, blue­ber­ries and straw­ber­ries has been found to be the tasti­est blend to pro­tect you from heart disease, says a study at the Univer­sity of Stras­bourg in France.

Polyphe­nols, found in fruit as well as red wine, chocolate and green tea, help pro­tect against car­dio­vas­cu­lar disease, but can be bit­ter tast­ing. This blend came up trumps for both flavour and ef­fec­tive­ness. + Don’t overdo it: Fruit juice con­tains less fi­bre than whole fruit and is higher in nat­u­ral sug­ars, so just half a glass (125ml) a day is plenty.
