We give you 3 reasons why you should not to drink commercial fruit juice
One of the best sources of Vitamin C is orange and for people who feel it is too much work to peel an orange and eat it, a glass of orange juice is the perfect substitute. All you do is go to the grocery store and buy your favorite brand of orange juice and then bring it home, put it in the fridge and drink as and when needed. There is much emphasis given on drinking juice instead of sugary soft drinks, but you will be shocked to know that you must not drink the store brought, commercial juice at all. We have 3 reasons for you to not do so.
1 Commercial fruit juice is full of sugar
Whichever juice you like and buy from the store in a container or in a bottle is essentially lots of sugar going into your system when you drink it. Since they need to preserve it and maintain the taste of the juice, despite advertising no sugar added, they added sugar substitutes in them. These substitutes have fructose in them which is even more harmful. Dr. Jonny Bowden says, “Fructose creates insulin resistance and significantly raises triglycerides (a risk factor for heart disease). It also increases fat around the middle which in turn puts you at greater risk for diabetes, heart disease and metabolic syndrome.” Pomegranate juice has 45 grams of sugar per 12 ounce serving and Orange juice has 30 grams of sugar per 12 ounce serving.
