We all know the saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” and a study led by USANA scientist, Dr. Jessie Nicodemus Johnson, shows why it’s a good idea to heed that advice. The study shows that eating whole fruit provides different benefits to the body versus drinking fruit juice. Although juice consumption may help with vitamin and mineral absorption, the immune system pathways associated with juice consumption are different than that of the humble whole fruit consumer, likely because the fiber in whole fruit is regulating what and when different compounds that are consumed are taken into the body.
