The benefits of juice

Fruit Juice, A Heathy Asset:

Quite naturally, fruit juices offer the same nutrional value as fruit. They are low in calories, high in water, and a good source of:
- energy-inducing vitamins
- various minerals that build and regulate your system
- protective antioxidants
- fiber which is helpful to the digestive tract .

The nutrional value of fruit juices lies in the source of vitamins they provide. Offering a large spectrum of vitamins that are essential to proper cell function.
They are particularly high in vitamin C, which has an antioxidant action and is essential for resistance to infections.
Provitamin A which is crucial to growth.
Vitamin B9 which is necessary to red blood cell production.

Fruit juices provide various minerals including potassium that prevents water retention, magnesium which relaxes muscles and many other trace elements essential for nutritional balance.
They also provide protective antioxidants to help stop the harmful effects of free radicals on body cells. They can be found in fruit juices as polyphenols, carotenoids, vitamins C & E and help protect against cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

Fruit juices contribute to body hydration as they contain 90% of water in average. They provide fibers and are low in calories and provide as much energy as the fruit they are extracted from. A glass of fruit juice can provide 30 to 90 kilocalories, just like a fruit of 150 grammes. The sugar found in fruit juices most often appears in the form of fructose: it tastes sweet with high sweetening power and low caloric provision. Fruit juices are low in lipids.
