How Fruit Juice Leads to Healthy Lungs

Living a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and abstinence from smoking is a great way to keep your lungs healthy. It is also important to have good dietary habits, and that includes eating or drinking fruits that contain antioxidants and vitamins.

Studies show people who consume large amounts of apples and tomatoes are less likely to have lung problems. According to Science Daily, this could be because of all the antioxidants in the peel of an apple and the color of a tomato. Consequently, keep the skin on whenever you are juicing them, or in the case of apples, blending them into a smoothie.

Fruit juices made from dark berries — raspberries, blackberries or blueberries — may help in preventing lung cancer because they contain antioxidants that protect cells from free radical damage. Berries also contain anthocyanins, which also lowers the risk of lung cancer.

Eating 1½ pieces of fruit and a large tablespoon of vegetables per day can reduce the risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease by protecting against emphysema or chronic bronchitis — two conditions that can cause COPD — according to Science Daily. And adding foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as nuts or flaxseeds can lower the risk of lung inflammation and ultimately, lung disease.
