Clinical Study Finds Melon Juice Concentrate May Reduce Stress Symptoms

September 15, 2009: 01:03 PM EST
A clinical study conducted in France has found that a daily dose of melon juice concentrate rich in superoxide dismutase (SOD) seems to have reduced the symptoms of stress and fatigue in healthy subjects. Scientists tested 70 people, ages 30 to 55, using the concentrate Extramel and a placebo. Four psychometric scales were used to measure stress and fatigue. However, the scientists seem not to have been convinced totally by the results. According to the abstract of the Nutrition Journal article, “a proprietary melon juice concentrate rich in SOD may have a positive effect” on stress and fatigue symptoms.
