Skip bottled juice for the benefits of all-natural
(NC)—We all know that we're supposed to consume 7 to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables on any given day as outlined by Canada's Food Guide. Many of us turn to bottled juice to help meet the daily intake recommendation, but we may not be getting what we think.
Many commercially bottled juices are processed and lack nutritional content, while freshly juiced fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. A lot happens in the bottling process, including heating and pasteurizing that reduces the nutritional content. Many bottled juices also have added preservatives, colour and artificial sugars.
Instead, juicing a selection of fresh produce is a simple activity you can do to ensure you're getting a sufficient amount. Reliable guidance is available on the Reboot with Joe website: rebootwithjoe.com. You will see that freshly juiced produce provides the essential vitamins, minerals and enzymes, all needed for a healthy body. Juicing is a fast and efficient way to absorb immune boosting nutrients and to get the daily required amount of fruits and veggies our bodies need.
