Cloudy Apple Juice Better, An Apple The Best

Most of us know the importance of antioxidants - those little superheroes that help our bodies neutralize free radicals that otherwise reap havoc on our bodies. A new Polish study reveals that for those who consume apple juice, the cloudier the apple juice the greater the concentration of antioxidants present. In fact, researchers found the cloudy juice contained up to four times the level of antioxidants. So what's the reason most apple juice sold is clear? Clear juice is more appealing to consumers and has a longer shelf life. It should be noted that as good as the cloudy apple juice is as compared to the clear, no apple juice beats the nutrients and antioxidants consumed by eating a fresh apple with the skin.
