EACH 8 OUNCE GLASS OF INDIAN RIVER SELECT BRAND® 100% PREMIUM ORANGE JUICE IS PACKED WITH BENEFITS!
Indian River Select’s Brand® 100% premium Orange Juice is high in vitamin C, which may help aid the absorption of nonheme iron (the iron found in plants like spinach, not meat products). Below are many more reasons why you should drink an 8 oz glass of Indian River Select® Brand 100% premium orange juice every day!
One 8-ounce glass of 100% orange juice is an excellent source of vitamin C, containing 120% of the recommended Daily Value. Vitamin C may function as a powerful antioxidant in the body.
Hesperidin is the most common flavonoid found in orange juice. 100% Orange Juice is one of the best sources of hesperidin as this flavonoid is highly concentrated in the citrus family and is rarely found in other foods. Hesperidin may play a role in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, heart and vascular health, glucose metabolism, and cognition. A clinical study reported that compared to a control drink, older adults who consumed 100% orange juice scored better on cognitive function tests, and the benefits appeared to persist over time.
Calcium for Bone Health
Eight ounces of calcium-fortified orange juice is an excellent non-dairy source of calcium that is lactose free. Calcium aids in bone and tooth development, blood pressure regulation and muscle function.
One 8oz serving of Indian River Select Brand® orange juice contains 14% of the Daily Value of Thiamin. Thiamin is a water-soluble B vitamin (vitamin B1) that plays a critical role in energy production; Thiamin helps your body convert food into energy the body can use. Thiamin may also be involved in nervous system health.
Indian River Select Brand® orange juice is a good source of potassium. Diets containing foods that are a good source of potassium and that are low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke. Important for muscle function, potassium also plays a role in nerve transmission and helps maintain the body’s fluid, electrolyte and pH balance.
100% orange juice is a good source of folic acid or folate, a water-soluble B vitamin. Folate is essential for DNA production, cell division, and amino acid metabolism. Folate is required to produce mature red blood cells and is strongly associated with reducing the risk for birth defects of the brain and spine, called neural tube defects.
