drinking-orange-juiceDrinking orange juice can stop the bad health effects of high-fat food according to new research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Endocrinologists at the University of Buffalo (UB) in the US show that the potent preventative effect of orange juice is most likely linked to its heavy load of flavonoids, naringenin and hesperidin, which are major antioxidants.

”Our data show, for the first time to our knowledge, that drinking orange juice with a meal high in fat and carbohydrates prevented the marked increases in reactive oxygen species and other inflammatory agents,” says UB assistant professor Husam Ghanim and study author.

Free radicals, or reactive oxygen species, are known to induce inflammation in blood vessel linings and contribute to the risk of heart attack and stroke.

”This did not happen when participants drank water or a sugary drink with the meal,” says Ghanim.

”These issues of inflammation following a meal are important because the resultant high glucose and high triglycerides are known to be related to the development of cardiovascular events.”
