In a new study published in the journal "Nutrients," scientists from USANA discovered the chemical signatures found on DNA (termed DNA methylation) were different in subjects who consumed whole fruit versus 100 percent fruit juice. These distinct signatures are linked to different cell-signaling pathways and immune cell functions, suggesting that whole fruit and juice may not confer the same health benefits and should not be thought of as nutritionally equivalent.
"We remain at the forefront of scientific research and the development of technology to improve human health," said
"We are thrilled to share the findings of this study. Our hope with each scientific discovery is that we continue to take steps to creating healthier and more fulfilling lives," said
