An elixir to counteract aging? Bergamot juice, according to science, as demonstrated by the latest article published just a few months ago on the journal Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity by an Italian team of the University of Pisa (Da Pozzo et al, Jul 2018).
The scientists have indeed observed that the juice of bergamot, Citrus bergamia, is rich in polyphenols and flavonoids, antioxidant substances. Moreover, this amazing juice contains also two types of limonoids, useful to fight chronic inflammations, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases and, for the first time, it has been possible to show that this drink is able to counteract cellular senescence, a process related to aging for which cells stop dividing and lose their functionalities, for this reason bergamot juice has a clear anti aging effect. Bergamot juice is a valid ally for a long and healthy life and, we add, it is also yummy and the slight sour taste is made pleasant by the incredible intense scent! We had the opportunity to drink this juice when we visited a fair dedicated to organic food and to healthy living some days ago. We never miss this date in order to be always updated with the latest news about diet and health. And when taste and science come together, as in this case, it is always something to share.
