CHOOSING HEALTHY JUICES

The definition of ‘healthy’ varies from person to person. The process of juice selection will vary depending on the benefits and outcomes you seek from drinking juices. Not all juices are same- some juices are low in calories while others are low in sugar content and some other juices may be high in nutrients. Juices also provide you other health perks such as glowing skin, boosting brain function etc.

Here us a guide on how to choose healthy juices:

 

1st Method: Defining healthy juices

1-Calorie count should be considered: Pure virgin apple juice and orange juice have more calorie amount than an equal volume of regular cola per portion size. It’s better to select juices with low-calorie counts like beet juice, grapefruit juice, or a mixed juice containing cucumber and kale.

2-Sugar levels should be considered: Go for juices that contain less added sugar. It’s better to select juices that contain natural extracts. Those juices labelled as “made from concentrate,” contain higher levels of sugar. So, they are to be avoided.

3-The amount of nutrients should be considered: Nutrients are of utmost importance to our body. Choose nutrient packed juiced for the best health benefits. Juices made from watermelon, berries, papaya, guava, honeydew, and citrus fruits are good for our health.

 

Method 2: Identifying healthy Juices

1-Drink grape juice: Grape juice might help maintain blood pressure, reduce the risk of blood clots, and lower cholesterol levels along with boosting brain functions. Purple and Red grape juices tend to have more antioxidant levels than white or green grape juices.

2- Drink pomegranate juice: Pomegranate juice helps in lowering cholesterol levels in the body, thus ensuring heart health. It is also packed with antioxidants that can help to improve your heart’s longevity.

3- Drink Orange juice:  With the amount of junk food we consume daily, your blood vessels stand a high chance of getting damaged. The flavonoids, plant pigments and the anti-inflammatory properties of orange juice decreases inflammation to a large extent.

4-Choose vegetable juices: We tend to drink fruit juices more but, vegetable juices contain lots of vitamins and minerals. Carrot juice, tomato juice, broccoli, celery, and spinach juice are all fantastic options. They also decrease your chances of procuring cancer.

 

Method 3: Using healthy juices

1- Drink a small portion of the juice: Drink a small portion of the juice if you are worried about the fact that the juice consumption is adding more calories to your diet. Consuming around eight fluid ounces is ideal.

2- Mix your juices: Feel free to combine two juices with two different healthy qualities. For example, mix grapefruit juice with beet juice, apple juice with cucumber juice.

The importance of consuming fruits and vegetables is well-known to everyone. Consuming them in the form of juices is more tastier and healthy option. Incorporate fruit and vegetable juices in your diet to stay fit and stay healthy.
