Apple Juice: An Alternative Solution to Prevent Obesity?

Irregular and uncontrolled eating patterns have adverse effects on health. This behavior can result in significant impacts, particularly obesity. Why? Due to overeating combined with minimal physical activity. As a result, the body tends to expand and grow larger due to gaining excess weight.

That is not a good sign, as referenced by the NHS (Inform Health Website), which highlights several diseases linked to obesity, including type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, cancer, and stroke.

The Health and Economic Consequences of an impending global challenge report states that obesity-related diseases are now among the top three killers globally, except in Sub-Saharan Africa. Recent data shows that since 1975, obesity has nearly tripled and now accounts for 4 million deaths worldwide every year.

It's no wonder people are now focusing on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They are not only paying attention to portion sizes but also the types of food they consume, trying to avoid unhealthy fatty, sugary, or excessively oily foods.

Many people choose to control their food intake to keep their bodies healthy. For example, there's been an increase in the consumption of healthy fruit juices. According to Statista, at-home revenue in the juice market amounts to US$81.4bn in 2024, with an expected annual growth rate of 5.27% (CAGR 2024-2028). In the Juice market, at-home volume is expected to amount to 34.2bn L by 2028, with a projected volume growth of 1.2% in 2025.

Almost all fruits can be consumed by the public either eaten directly or processed into juice. One of the most popular fruits is the apple. According to Maximize Market Research, in 2022, apple flavor will be the second favorite after orange juice.

Furthermore, other studies also found the same result, with apple juice being one of the favorites for consumption. Impactful Insight (IMARC) notes that apple juice is one of the favored flavors consumed by the public.

Aside from its delicious taste, apples also have health benefits. The journal titled Apple-Derived Pectin Modulates Gut Microbiota, Improves Gut Barrier Function, and Attenuates Metabolic Endotoxemia in Rats with Diet-Induced Obesity explains that apples can improve the digestive system to prevent obesity.

Considering that obesity and related metabolic disorders are attributable to a combination of genetics, an unhealthy diet, and lifestyle, recent studies have shown that disturbances in gut microbiota, especially the ratio of Bacteroidetes to Firmicutes phylum, are closely related to obesity and metabolic disorders.

Meanwhile, apple juice, when processed, retains the same benefits as whole apples. The journal titled Health Benefits of Apple Juice Consumption: A Review of Intervention Trials on Humans, published by the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, explains that apples are rich in fiber.

Fibers are non-digestible polysaccharides that can have positive health benefits through their passage into the gastrointestinal tract. There is a strong relationship between the consumption of dietary fibers and the reduction of several diseases and disorders, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, gastrointestinal disorders, and cancers.

In conclusion, apple juice also plays a role in preventing obesity and can improve digestive health. If you are interested, you can consume apple extract processed into a healthy juice drink.
