Hari ini saya ingin berkongsi kelebihan buah epal. Ini adalah ringkasan daripada journal yang saya baca dan saya merasakan ianya sangat berilmu. Nak baca details boleh pergi kat sini : benefit of apples
Jika di dalam penulisan kajian, (academic research), ini dipanggil ‘systematic review” tetapi saya review satu artikel je. Hehehe.
Okei, mari sambung kembali. Ini ringkasan journal tersebut.
“ Research has shown that biologically active components in plant-based foods, particularly phytochemicals, have important potential to modulate many processes in the development of diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pulmonary disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, and other degenerative disease states”.
“Apples and AP (AP-flavonoid consumption), including juices and extracts, have been included in health-related studies around the world due to their rich content of varied phytochemicals. The potential of AP phytochemicals to reduce disease risk and improve health has caught the attention of scientists, practitioners, and the lay public.”
Di dalam ini adalah ringkasan buah epal sebiji tu dengan dibuat jus epal dan juga jus epal dalam kotak yang kita beli di pasar raya tu. Epal sebiji itu lagi bagus taw! Tengok total polyphenols dia tu, tinggiii kan.
Buah epal ni membantu mencegah dan merawat penyakit di bawah
1- Kanser Kolon
2- Kanser Payu Dara
3- Kanser lain juga
“1/3 of all cancer deaths could be prevented by improved diet, particularly increased consumption of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains (13).
There is convincing evidence that diets high in fruits and vegetables are associated with reduced cancer in the lung, oral cavity, esophagus, stomach, and colon (13).”
“The observations that AP intake might be associated with reduced risk of cancer have led to an expanded field of animal and in vitro work with cell models that mimic phases in the initiation, promotion, and progression of cancer”.
4- Penyakit Kardiovaskular
“These include the diet related conditions of hypertension, coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, angina, heart failure, and stroke (33). A group of Finnish women consuming >71 g of apple/d experienced a 43% reduction in coronary mortality compared to women who did not eat apples. In men, the risk reduction was 19% in the group consuming >54 g compared to no apple intake (34)”.
5- Asthma dan Fungsi Pulmonary (paru-paru)
“In a separate study, Shaheen et al. (55) examined the effect of AP on the presence of asthma diagnosis and symptoms (defined as “wheeze”) in children in the UK.
Parents/ caregivers reported apple and apple juice intake and health data of over 2600 children aged 5–11 y. It was found that apple juice from concentrate was significantly and dose dependently associated with reduced wheeze (juice ranging from 1 serving/mo to 1 serving/d) but not with reduced presence of asthma. Fresh apple intake (2–6/wk) tended to be protective but was not significant for a dose-response relationship”.
6- Proses penuaan dan kognitif (memori)
“Because cholinergic depletion is associated with impaired memory and reduced cognitive performance, and acetylcholine reduction in particular is associated with Alzheimer’s disease, there is potential importance in the ability of apple juice to maintain levels of this neurotransmitter”
“However, there are provocative data suggesting that mechanisms beyond antioxidant effects are important, including suppression of neurotoxic mediators in Alzheimer’s disease. The processes associated with aging and amplified in neurodegenerative diseases of aging are complex and not completely understood. The available data show preliminary but intriguing potential of AP to modulate some of these processes in animal models”
8- Kurangkan berat badan
“It is plausible that the low-energy density and fiber content of apples make them effective in weight reduction diets. Thus, apples may be potentially important in weight-related disorders”
9- Menguatkan tulang
“It is estimated that 1.5 million people will suffer an osteoporotic-related fracture each year. Fruits and vegetables provide nutrients that are thought to be associated with improved bone health (vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin K) in addition to producing alkaline metabolites that might improve bone health by reducing calcium excretion (72). Intake of fruits and vegetables is associated with improvement in bone mineral density and other bone markers in epidemiologic studies (73). Only a few studies have examined AP but preliminary observations suggest that AP may have a positive impact on markers related to bone health”.
10- Gastrointestinal protection from drug injury
“The antioxidant mechanisms described in many studies have important implications for a protective effect of AP on not only cancer but also cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, and potentially diabetes”.
“Several studies demonstrate that AP reduce cell proliferation, alter markers of the cell cycle, increase apoptotic mechanisms, and modulate signal transduction pathways.
Although further work is needed to extrapolate these findings to clinical outcomes, it is promising that there are multiple plausible mechanisms by which AP intake might reduce the risk of cancer in humans. The combined phytochemical and nutrient profiles in AP suggests their potential to be powerful in the prevention of several chronic conditions in humans. Ongoing work continues to further delineate multiple mechanisms by which AP might be protective and suggests great promise. Future studies, including well-conducted clinical trials using whole apple preparations and juice, are clearly warranted”.
Jika bertanya pada saya, apa yang saya dapat?
Makanlah buah epal untuk kesihatan. Sebab tu ada jual apple stemcell yang high antioxidant dan ada pepatah mengatakan an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
