Food Facts

Green tea has been shown to help reduce bodyfat, but it can also help protect your skin from sun damage. According to the February ’13 Prevention, the antioxidant EGCG in green tea “increases the ability of blood cells to protect themselves against damage caused by UV exposure.”

Multivitamins are often said to be useless if you eat right, but new research suggests that they’re good insurance against disease. According to the January ’13 Better Nutrition, a large study featured in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that taking a daily multivitamin reduces the risk of cancer by 12 percent.

High-fructose corn syrup has been implicated in the obesity epidemic, but now there’s something more—learning and memory problems. According to the January/February ’13 Well Being Journal, Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a professor of neurology and integrative biology and physiology at UCLA conducted a study that showed the correlation; however, he also found that omega-3 fatty acids can reverse those mental-depletion effects.

Cherry juice contains a significant amount of melatonin, according to the May ’12 Prevention. That appears to be the reason that it helped people sleep in a new study reported in the European Journal of Nutrition. A one-ounce dose of cherry juice concentrate is all it took for the subjects to get better, longer shut-eye.
