Find out why it’s better to drink vegetable juice instead of fruit juices in the classes below from Dr. Horaţiu Albu, who specializes in Ortho Molecular Nutrition.
Vegetable or fruit juices?
Fruit contains a specific type of sugar called fructose. Of course, it is an excellent way to replace sweets because, unlike sucrose, fructose is slowly absorbed into the blood and gradually releases for energy, which facilitates blood sugar control.
Sweet-tasting fruits, such as cherries or peaches, contain more sugar than astringent flavors, such as lemon.
Consuming sugar-rich fruit juice can easily raise blood sugar, and when the human body receives more glucose, it will be stored in the liver and muscles where it is released and consumed later, when the body needs energy.
The lack of fiber in fruit juices disrupts blood sugar levels.
On the other hand, nutritional research has shown that 3 servings of fruit per day protect us from diabetes, but daily consumption of a glass of fruit juice increases the risk of diabetes by 24%.
The fruit is very good in the diet, but people should be aware of the hidden forms of sugar, and therefore the Romanian population consumes it in excess. Only one Roman consumes 30 kg of sugar per year, 75% of the sugars are in fruits, and only 25% in vegetables. Of course, we are talking about unprocessed variants. This is why vegetable juices are more suitable in the diet than fruit juices, says Dr. Horacio Albo.
