Eat Apples to Prevent Memory Loss

New Study Finds Consuming Apple Juice Associated With Brain Health



"An apple a day" now has new meaning for those who want to maintain mental dexterity as they age.New research from the University of Massachusetts Lowell suggests that eating and drinking apples and apple juice,in conjunction with a balanced diet,can protect the brain from the effects of oxidative stress that contributes to age-related memory loss.The study was  published in the latest issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.





The researchers evaluated adult and aged mice using a standard diet,a nutrient-deficient diet,and a nutrient-deficient diet supplemented with apple juice concentrate in drinking water.Supplementation by apple juice fully protected the aged mice from the oxidative stress caused by the nutrient-deficient diet.In addition,stronger mental acuity resulted when the aged mice consumed the human equivalent of 2-3 cups of apple juice or approximately 2-4 apples per day.
Apart from being brain healthy,apples are a delicious source of dietary  fiber,which helps aid digestion and promotes weight loss.Apples have high nutrient content compared to the calorie per serving,promote health,protect against diseases and improve daily functioning.
And what better choice than Washington Apples,when comes to eating apples.Mr. Sumit Saran of The SCS Group,which represents the Washington Apple Commission in India remarked,“Out of 7,500 varieties of apple grown worldwide,the best are planted in the commercial orchards of Washington State.Some of the popular variants of  Washington Apples which are now available in India are juicy Red Delicious,mildly sweet Golden Delicious,green and juicy Granny Smith to name a few.”
