Complementary Juice

If you are a frequent visitor of every Monday night's seminar which is held in our company, you would have probably heard a lot of information about antioxidants, and a piece or two things about oxidation reaction. Just in case you are not aware of these terms, please allow me to explain them again here within this post.

Firstly, what is antioxidant? Extracted from wikipedia, antioxidant basically is a molecule which slows down or prevent the occurrence of oxidation of other molecules. So it generally leads to the next question, what actually does oxidation reaction do to our body as it can reach a very bad and serious extent that many people are saying that oxidation could make us looked older? Oxidation reaction actually produces harmful substances which are known as "the free radicals". These free radicals, they would basically damage our cells and body system.

And before you know it, we have actually "consumed" a large amount of free radicals into our body. What are the foods which contribute to this? It is none other than foods which are high in fat and calories. These types of foods could generate free radicals in our body which in turns destroy or harm our body cells.

In a recent study, it shows that when we are consuming these foods, there is actually a complementary food which we could take into consideration in order to reduce the production of free radicals.

A study which was conducted by researchers from University of Buffalo involved 10 strong individuals. This study requested them to consume a 900-calorie breakfast after fasting in the previous day of the study. After the consumption of those delicious foods, one group of them were asked to drink a 300-calories orange juice, the second group were asked to drink a 300-calories glucose drink while the third group drank plain edible water. There was no significant difference in inflammatory mediators among these participants, and these participants were requested to finish the meal in 15 minutes.

Next, subsequent 1, 3, and 5 hours were the moments where their blood samples were collected. As a result, it showed that oxygen free radicals increased an average of 62 percent with water, 63 percent with the glucose and 47 percent with orange juice. This generally explains that original orange juices could potentially reduce the production of free radicals.

Hence, when non-existence of the best possible products, which is GTF Products occurred, and at the same time you feel that high fats and calories foods which are placed in front of you sometimes are inevitable but to swallow them into your tummy, might as well take a glass of fresh orange juice as your companion.
