Reasons why you should eat fruit after meal

Published June 10, 2022

Opera News published a story about the benefits of eating fruit after a meal and mentioned 2010 research from UB that promoted the role of flavonoids in orange juice as “scavengers” in the body. Two antioxidants, naringin and hesperidin, neutralize the oxidative stress and inflammation generated by an unhealthy meal and prevent damage to the blood vessels. Husam Ghanim, PhD, a research associate professor in the Department of Medicine in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biological Sciences, was the first author on that study.
