Researchers at the University of Medicine in Berlin have shown that a supplement made from fruit and vegetable juice significantly reduces the number of days that subjects exhibited severe cold symptoms.
The report demonstrates the potential benefits of a product that may help reduce the number of sick days taken and lower the costs of cold medicines. Scientists carried out an eight-month study that involved a double-blind test. Half of the subjects took the fruit supplement daily, while others were given a placebo.
After two months, both groups had equal numbers of colds. However, those who received the supplement were shown to have much milder symptoms, and were healthy about 20 percent faster than those who took the placebo.
Those who are interested in increasing their fruit and vegetable intake may want to consider taking dietary supplements, like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
Ultimate Reds from Dr. Newton’s Naturals contains nutrients from 20 different fruits and vegetables. Regular intake may help support immune function and neutralize harmful free radicals in the body.
