Ever since I was a little girl my juice of choice has been Orange Juice. Something about it is so refreshing and thirst quenching. I could drink it every day with no remorse on how sweet it is because it tastes good and is loading with things that a body needs.
Did you know…Orange Juice not only has the Vitamin C which is the most important antioxidants and helps support our immune system it also has minerals such as potassium that our body needs. Not many people know potassium plays a major role in reducing the risk of high blood pressure and stroke. Just one 8 once glass of 100% orange juice provides 14% of the Daily Value for potassium. Thiamin is also associated with many enzymes in our systems which help repair and produce our DNA. Let’s not forget folic acid which helps cell division and healthy red blood cells and reduce the risk of birth defects in children as well as calcium which is good for the bones.
Long story short, Orange Juice has a natural sweetener and is super nutritious so don’t feel guilty about drinking this fat free, sodium free, and cholesterol free treat 🙂
