Orange and grapefruit juices make your bones stronger
The regular use of orange and grapefruit juice prevents the development of osteoporosis. This conclusion was reached by scientists of the Texas A&M University. Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by progressive thinning of the bones with reduction in bone mass. In most cases the illness develops after the age of 50.
During their two month experiments, the scientists under the supervision of Dr. Farzad Deyhim came to the conclusion that freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juice not only stops the process of thinning of the bones, but also reverses it. According to the experts the explanation lies in the presence of vast amounts of antioxidants, which are renowned for preventing development of cancer and occurrences of heart diseases and strokes.
Citrus fruits contain approximately 400 active components. Which one is the one responsible for the increase in bone thickening is yet unknown, but scientists suppose that this is limonite.
