Drinking as little as two to three glasses of fruit and vegetable juice each week may help reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by up to 75 percent. The study reporting these results, published in the American Journal of Medicine (2006, vol.119: 751-759), examined data regarding dietary consumption of fruit and vegetables among 1,836 dementla-free Japanese American subjects with an average age of 72. The researchers assessed cognitive function every two years for up to 10 years. They discovered that people who drank juices three or more times per week were 76 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease. The study also suggested that it was the antioxidant polyphenols contained in the juices that provided the benefits.
