Researchers have been trying to make connections between certain types of fruit juices and whole fruits.  In previous years people were mostly concerned with the vitamin C content, but now the focus is directed toward expanding their expectations of the benefits of certain fruits.

Potassium from bananas can help lower risk of stroke.

Cranberries have been used to alleviate the symptoms of urinary tract infections for years.  I have found effective relief when feeling very uncomfortable, and maintain a level system with cranberry extract capsules.

Tart cherries are associated with the relief of muscle pain and reducing the signs of inflammation from exercise. 

Pomegranate juice is touted in almost ‘folklore’ status.  The list of symptoms it helps is long.  It helps circulation, prostate cancer, slows down hardening of the arteries in those with coronary heart disease, and even article dysfunction.http://www.buzzle.com/articles/pomegranate-benefits-for-women.html  

Berries (blue, strawberries, blackberries, cranberries) have been shown to help memory.

Some fruits that were promoted heavily in the media, haven’t shown their advertised benefits over time; acai, noni (ancient herb thought to cure certain medical issues), and mangosteen (a fruit that is high in carbohydrates that claims to improve the immune system and blood circulation, strengthen the body's ability to fight disease and infection preventing diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease).  The claims did not hold up over time through research.

Be careful when utilizing fruits and fruit juices to accommodate their calories in your daily food plan.  Otherwise you may be surprised when you pack on the pounds while trying to reduce your symptoms.

Also, check in with your trusted pharmacist if you are taking medication regularly to check for negative drug-interactions with your medicines.
