April 18, 2012 - PRLog -- There is no doubt we have seen those commercials for energy drinks with antioxidants that purport to be the answer to all your health needs but are those expensive drinks really the best answer for improved health or a clever marketing scheme from Madison Avenue’s spin magicians? Now a new study from Italy gives us the real deal on these high profile health drinks. We have all heard how red wine, nuts chocolate, onions, seaweed, broccoli, spinach and even garlic can help our bodies cleanse itself of cell damaging free radicals but is buying an expensive drink that contains ALL of these ingredients and more really a good idea?

The latest research rejects this concept and many researchers believe a glass of Orange Juice from African Green Oranges (especially those certified by the fair trade organization Sunkwa International) one of the least expensive fruits on the planet besides being more flavorful than American and Thai green orange species is also the best alternative to expensive antioxidant beverages with an even higher content of antioxidants than the chemically enhanced designer drinks found on health food store shelves.
But what about those specialty teas like green tea and herbal teas that purport to have the same benefits as juices? Researchers have found in a recent laboratory analysis bottled tea drinks were lower in antoxidants than fresh squeezed juice especially polyphenols and in some cases the most popular brands had almost no polyphenols.
In recent news it was reported by CITIFONLINE.COM that President John Evans Atta Mills and his Nigerian counterpart Goodluck Jonathan have underscored the need for free trade to be enhanced within the West African Sub-region.  The two Presidents stated this when they briefed press men on the various discussions they had before the Nigerian President emplaned to Nigeria. One subject was the export of Ghanain fruit to the worldwide market.

President Goodluck Jonathan was in Ghana for a two day state visit which saw him hold bilateral talks with President Mills and also awarded with an Honorary Doctorate Degree by Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).The two Presidents also jointly cut the sod for the construction of an ultra-modern library complex at GIMPA. The construction of the library will cost $ 8. 5m.
President Mills on behalf of the government of Ghana pledged to support the project with GHC 2m while fifteen Nigerian companies also pledged $ 1m.
Briefing press men at the Kotoka International Airport, the two Presidents indicated that enhancing free trade would bring enormous benefits. They bemoaned the fact that although the ECOWAS protocol on free trade and movement of people is in force its adherence by member countries is minimal.

Currently there is greater collaboration between Ghana and Nigeria to ensure that enhancing free trade within West Africa becomes a reality. Read More in the New Sunkwa Bi Annual Catalog and newsletter out November 2012
