It turns out that the old adage an apple a day keeps the doctor away is really true. Provided of course that it is a fresh, organic apple. This fascinating study shows that just drinking fresh apple juice helps with the negative moods of Alzheimer’s victims. Wow. And it helps lower cholesterol too.
Dr. Thomas Shea, a neurobiologist, and his research team at the University of Massachusetts topped off 10 years of studying apples’ effects on brain health. They used test tubes, Petri dishes, and mice for years. Then finally they confirmed their findings with a human clinical trial.
Twenty-one AD patients from ages 72 to 93 were fed four ounces of apple juice twice daily for thirty days. There were improvements with memory as well as the negative emotional moods normally associated with AD victims.
Dr. Shea concluded that by drinking apple juice only three times per week, you would reduce your chances of Alzheimer’s by 75%. And there are other benefits. Other animal studies have demonstrated that apples protect the heart, increase lipid metabolism, and reduce inflammation.
A Florida State University study by Dr. Bahram Arjmandi, involving several women aged 45 to 65, discovered that a heavy diet of apples reduced LDL in the women by 23% in six months. The women also lost three and a half pounds on average.
