Drinking fruit juice on an empty stomach affects beneficial stomach bacteria

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Eating fruit juice in the morning on an empty stomach may cause an effect on beneficial stomach bacteria, a new study suggests. Where researchers found that fruit juice contains high levels of fructose sugar, which is rapid access to the intestine after consumption. Also, the stomach in the morning is unable to treat large amounts of fructose, leading to large amounts of intestinal spills, so that they become in contact with good bacteria, which are not designed to treat sugar.

Although previous studies indicate that sugar is processed by the liver, the new research means that 90% of fructose is digested in the small intestine!

Other results show that the small intestine is best treated with fructose, when consumed after a meal. The findings from mice showed that feeding mice before exposure to sugar helped strengthen the ability of the small intestine to treat fructose, which protects against exposure to sugar, the researchers at Princeton University said.

Eating fruit is better than drinking its juice because it has many fibers and is very useful in digestion and protection against diseases. As for juices, it may increase sugar, which is not harmful to many people. One orange contains 60 calories, while a glass of orange juice contains 150 calories Thermal. 

In the end, the study always supports the advice to reduce sweets to reach moderate amounts after meals.

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Taking over-the-counter painkillers, including ibuprofen, may affect women's emotional response, a new study suggests. The study by the University of California found that women who ate some famous types of painkillers such as ibuprofen reported less pain when passing painful emotional experiences than others, but the same could not be said for men who found their feelings worsened when taking pharmaceutical!

Scientists say the effect is that these cheap painkillers may block emotions from reaching the brain, and patients only expect physical pain to be improved or relieved, and do not signify the psychological impact of those detected in the study. The new review by researchers from the University of California included warnings about these popular pills and their risk associated with increased heart attacks and fertility problems and cirrhosis.
