Get your Vitamin C in a glass of Indian River Select!
Did you know that our juices, orange juice, grapefruit juice, and lemonade have enough vitamins and nutrients to keep your immune system strong and in good working order? Some studies have even shown that drinking juice can help with flu symptoms and even improve your overall health, as long as it is in moderation.
Dr. Elizabeth Miles* of Southampton University’s Nutritional Immunology Department suggests that citrus juices contain a healthy amount of Vitamin C and folate to boost the body’s defences against bacteria and viruses. Impressive, right?
While we already know that fresh fruits have many nutritional benefits, fruit juices still play an important role in your family’s overall diet, so don’t feel like you have to eliminate your favorite orange juice or grapefruit juice from your lifestyle to be healthy!
Below are some ways citrus juice can affect your health positively, giving you more reason to incorporate it into your daily routine:
- Nutrients – that reduce the severity of cold and flu symptoms
Orange juice, especially those packed with pulp, is loaded with Vitamin C and folic acid which may give your immune system a boost and help you recover from the flu faster than you normally would. This is because Vitamin C helps encourage the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes, which help protect the body against viruses and infections.
- Antioxidants – can help strengthen the immune system
Antioxidants found in fruit juices are important to the body for various reasons. It protects against cell damage that free radicals cause, helping prevent oxidative damage, reduces inflammation, and protects against chronic disease. Another important reason is that with every aspect it protects, it builds up a stronger immune system for your family!If you think that’s it, well there’s more! To take it up another level in health and goodness, our orange and grapefruit juice is packed with powerful antioxidants as well as beta-carotene, which serves as a source of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for growth especially in children!
- Vitamin C – High in for good health
For a healthier immune system, loading up on Vitamin C is a must, since it helps the body’s natural ability to fight infection. On top of this, it also provides the body with an essential source of energy and collagen which may help enhance the skin’s strength and elasticity, and other nutrients necessary for growth, development and the repair of body tissues.
- Calcium – for bone health
Our calcium-fortified orange juice is perfect for families with kids because it’s an excellent lactose-free source of calcium, which aids in bone and tooth development, blood pressure regulation and muscle function.
