Plant Concentrate LOWERS CHOLESTEROL
Capsules containing concentrated fruit and vegetable juices can help reduce cholesterol and unhealthy levels of chronic inflammation, according to a study of 56 overweight people age 40 and older. Researchers at the University of Newcastle in Australia noted that phytochemicals in plants are known to counteract inflammation and can reduce health risks for chronic diseases among older adults who are overweight or obese. The study was published in the journal Nutrition. Many green powders and some multivitamins contain concentrated fruits and vegetables or juices.
