Peeling fruit is one of the most popular ways to remove mold and help break down mold.
Fruit peels have also been used for the treatment of burns and for wound healing.
Peeling fruits, especially pears, has also been found to be a powerful way to lower the risk of many diseases, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
A new study has found that peeling a single fruit can also help you get a taste for a food.
The study was conducted by researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, and found that consuming fruit peel juice at a high-enough dose (10-25 g) can increase your sense of taste and can help you to identify foods that you may want to try.
“When we looked at fruit juice consumption, we found that fruit juice has a wide range of health benefits and has been shown to reduce blood pressure and heart disease risk,” said study lead author Dr. Stephanie Klimas, from the Department of Nutrition and Food Science at the UC San Francisco School of Public Health.
“The fact that we can use fruit peel as an alternative to consuming sugar-sweetened beverages is a testament to how important fruit juice is for a healthy diet.”
The study found that people who were able to drink a high amount of fruit juice, regardless of how much they liked it, had lower blood pressure, blood glucose levels, and the overall level of metabolic syndrome, a common measure of metabolic disease.
“We have shown that fruit peel can lower blood sugar and insulin levels, so it is possible to help people with metabolic syndrome and prevent cardiovascular disease,” Dr. Klimis said.
“People can increase their fruit juice intake by adding in the following items: 1 cup of plain fruit juice 2 cups of fruit, such as pears or grapes, and 1 cup fruit flavored with lemon, lime or other fruits (e.g., grape juice, apple juice) or a blend of fruit and vegetable juice.
These can be consumed at least three times a week.”
The researchers also found that eating a variety of fruits, including pears and peaches, can be good for your heart health.
People who drink at least one cup of fruit per day had a 30% lower risk of death from heart disease and a 23% lower mortality rate compared to people who consumed one cup a day or less.
Fruit juices are also a great way to combat bloating, which is an irregular, heavy-coloured discharge from your belly, stomach and intestines.
The researchers found that taking fruit juice daily was associated with a significant decrease in blood pressure.
Dr. James Lipsitz, from The University of Toronto’s Faculty of Medicine, said that the results of the study should be viewed in the context of previous research.
“It is interesting to note that fruit peeling is one way to reduce risk of heart disease.
For example, people who ate less fruit had a lower risk,” he said.
Lipsitz said that if people do not have diabetes, the benefits are likely greater.
“I think the more we understand the potential health benefits of fruits and vegetables, the more the need to make healthy eating choices.”
The findings of this study were published online this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
This research was supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the European Union, the Food and Drug Administration and the University Medical Center of Vienna.
