Adverse effects of using natural berry juices
1. In some types of diseases, the use of certain berries should be completely excluded or limited. Similar restrictions apply primarily to diabetes. In case of pancreatic dysfunction (associated with the secretion of the hormone insulin), berry fruit juices in which the glucose content is the same or higher than the fructose content are not recommended for patients with diabetes.
2. Fructose is almost twice as sweet as glucose and does not require the participation of insulin for its decomposition in the body. Therefore, in disorders of secretion of this hormone, preference is given to juices rich in fructose (and not glucose test). The use of juices with high glucose content (grape juice and quince juice) should be avoided.
3. In case of metabolic disorders, obesity and tendency towards obesity, it is necessary to limit the treatment with sweet berry juices. The chemical composition of these many juices does not contain fat but contains a high percentage of carbohydrates (sugar-glucose, fructose and sucrose). The sugars contained in these juices are rapidly usable sources of energy. Under certain conditions, sugars can be converted into fat (metabolic disorder, sedentary lifestyle), which increases body weight. Therefore, it is necessary to limit the use of those juices that contain a high percentage of sugar (quince juice, grape juice, strawberry and blackberry).
4. Patients with severe and chronic gastric and intestinal disease, i.e. inflammatory processes of the stomach and intestines (accompanied by irritation of the mucous membranes of these organs and increased intestinal motility, e.g. gastritis, enteritis and colitis), liver and pancreas, blackcurrant juice is not recommended because it contains a large amount of citric acid) and sour gooseberry juice.
5. People prone to dental diseases are recommended to exclude or limit rosehip juice because rosehip destroys tooth enamel.
6. In the case of liver and gallbladder diseases, the use of berry fruit juices of acidic varieties is not recommended.
