Especially the herbal ingredient Hesperidin contained in orange juice is said to have a positive effect on the blood vessels of the human body. Previous studies show that. Thus a glass of fruit juice is to lower daily the risk for strokes by 24 per cent and the risk for koronare heart diseases by 20 per cent. In the context of the new study test persons get six weeks long daily either a small glass of orange juice or one of two placebo beverages, of which one contains pure Hesperidin from oranges. With it the scientists want to find out whether the observed health effects are to be due causally to this substance.
