Concentrated Fruits Vegetables

  1. 1. Concentrated Fruits And Vegetables Workshop
  2. 2. Why Fruits And Vegetables?  Researchers now realise that plants contain compounds that can help promote good health “ There’s more to food than vitamins, minerals, fibre, calories, and protein. We are discovering a plethora of bioactive substances in foods” - John D. Potter, cancer epidemiologist at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
  3. 3. Health benefits of fruits and vegetables  Fruits and vegetables are antioxidant sources  Diets high in fruits and vegetables have many health benefits – Heart disease – Eye health – Diabetes – Cancer
  4. 4. Fruit and Vegetable Intake in Malaysia Less than 5 servings per day 100 Less than 3 servings per day 90 % of Population 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 18-29 30-39 40-49 50-59 60-69 70-100 Age Dietary Intake Not sufficient! WHO Global Info Database: 2003 National Data from World Health Survey, Malaysia.
  5. 5. Why Fruits And Vegetables?  Loaded with phytonutrients – plant based nutrients  Phytonutrients help protect your body and keep it healthy There are literally thousands of phytonutrients in plants!
  6. 6. Why Phytonutrients? What do they do?  A part of optimal health  Supports healthy cell growth  Antioxidant protection  Assists the body’s natural production of protective enzymes  Supports the immune system
  7. 7. Phytonutrients and Antioxidants  Many phytonutrients are antioxidants  Antioxidants inactivate free radicals  Antioxidants help to reduce damage to cells, lipids and DNA  A mixture of antioxidants is thought to offer the most health benefit  Fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of antioxidants
  8. 8. ORAC Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity  Is a measure of the total antioxidant capacity of the product  The higher the ORAC value, the better it is at quenching free radicals  Fruits and vegetables with high ORAC values have health benefits  Researchers suggest that ORAC intake range between 1000-2000 units per day to promote improved health and decrease the risk of chronic diseases  Other researchers suggest intake between 3000-5000 units per day
  9. 9. Which fruits and vegetables do I choose?  Phytonutrient profile of each plant is unique  Amount of each phytonutrient profile varies in different plants – Important to eat a range of different fruits and vegetables to get the full benefit of the various phytonutrients
  10. 10. Latest Research – Interesting Results!  Men who eat the most tomatoes have the healthiest prostate tissue  People who eat the most leafy green vegetables maintain healthy vision  People who drink the most green tea generally have a healthy cardiovascular system
  11. 11. Lycopene  An orange-red coloured carotenoid  Exhibits potent antioxidant activity  Epidemiological studies have indicated – a correlation between increased tomato intake and reduced risk of prostate cancer Tomato
  12. 12. Lutein  Also found in green leafy vegetables  A yellow coloured carotenoid that possesses high antioxidant activity  Promotes eye health  Specifally absorbs blue light  Lutein and zeaxanthin – reduce the risk of macular degeneration Source: Seddon J et al. Dietary carotenoids, vitamins A,C, and E, and advanced age –related macular degeneration. JAMA 1994; Marigold 272:1413-1420
  13. 13. Quercetin  Also found in apples, onions and green tea  Plant – derived bioflavonoid  Function as antioxidants  Helps supports the health of blood vessels  Could reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease Green Beans
  14. 14. Ellagic Acid  Protects against DNA damage  Inhibits activity of selected group of enzymes – (N-acetyltransferases) – lead to changes in DNA structure Pomegranate Source:Festa F et al. Strong antioxidant activity of ellagic acid in mammalian cells in vitro revealed by the comet assay. Anticancer Res 2001; 21:3903 – 3908 Lin SS et al. Ellagic acid inhibits arylamine N- acetyltransferase activity and DNA adduct formation in humar bladder tumour cell lines(T24 and TSGH 8301). Urol Res 2001: 29:371-376
  15. 15. Hesperidin  Excellent source of hesperidin  Together with diosmin(citrus flavonoid) is effective in reducing the severity of varicose veins  Effective in reducing hemorrhoids and chronic venous insufficiency  Helps support good cardiovascular performance Orange
  16. 16. Hesperidin  Individuals who drank up to 3 glasses of orange juice daily increase their HDL levels by 21%, and lower total cholesterol and triglyceride levels. The positive effects have been attributed to the hesperidin level in the orange juice. Source: Ibegbuna V etal. Venous elasticity after treatment with daflon 500mg. Angiology.1997; 48:77-85 Presented at the American Heart Association Meeting in Atlanta , GA, 1999.
  17. 17. Epigallocatechin(EGCG)  Contains phytonutrients called catechins  Rich in epigallocatechin  Green tea catechins are Green Tea effective antioxidants
  18. 18. Epigallocatechin(EGCG)  Especially beneficial in women  Women who drank 4+ cups of green tea per day could reduce the risk of aortic atherosclerosis Source:Geleijnse JM et al. Tea flavonoids may protect against atherosclerosis: The Rotterdam study.Arch Int Med 1999; 159: 2170-2174.
  19. 19. Carotenoids  Carrots are excellent sources of beta and alpha- carotenes  Function as beneficial antioxidants to limit the damage of free radicals  Beta carotene can be converted to vitamin A in the body on an as –needed basis Carrots
  20. 20. Rosmaridiphenol, Carnosic and Rosmarinic Acid  Rosemary extract contains a number of natural antioxidants - Rosmaridiphenol, Carnosic and Rosmarinic Acid  Function as beneficial antioxidants to limit the damage of free radicals Rosemary
  21. 21. Anthocyanins Blueberry  Berries such as blueberry and elderberry are important sources of anthocyanins  Protect the body from free radical damage Elderberry  Evidence indicates that anthocyanins may help protect against DNA damage
