Introducing the all time favourite classics

Twenty five days into the new year, life seems to be going back to the way it was. We’ve stopped forgetting to write 15 instead of 14 when we write the date, we’re back to hours in front of the TV instead of at the gym. At the beginning of the year, we posted about New Year’s Resolutions.
How many of you have stayed on track till this third week? The trick to keeping any resolution is to pay attention to the not-so-obvious. Being healthy begins with drinking healthy and what’s healthier than fruit juice?

Let’s look at some age old favourites:

Innocent OJ

A glass of orange juice gives you your recommended amount of daily vitamin C intake. Infused with folic acid, potassium and antioxidants, OJ is the perfect accompaniment to any meal or a delight on its own.

Watermelon-Juice

Watermelons are 95% water.
Jellyfish are 97% though!

Watermelon juice keeps the heart healthy as it is very rich source of Lycopene. Lycopene is an antioxidant that helps to defuse ‘free radicals’ that could potentially damage tissues and organs of the body. The presence of Lycopene in it is also beneficial for the skin as the antioxidants tend to decrease free radicals from the body and retards the process of aging
quite effectively.

Grape-Juice-For-Skin

Grape Juice. Not Grape Drink. Sorry, Dave.

Flavonoids found in grape juice raise the level of HDL (good) cholesterol. This prevents blockage of arteries and the heart remains healthy. Resveratrol found in grape juice has been shown to prevent the formation of tumors in certain cases and is hence anticarcinogenic. Purple-colored grape juice has been known to help prevent breast cancer.

Pineapple juice with Shawn Spencer?

Pineapple juice contains the enzyme bromelain which is beneficial in preventing coughs and colds and other flu symptoms. It improves breathing by thinning mucus in the respiratory system. Bromelain breaks down the naturally occurring protein fibrin which helps the clotting of blood. Taking bromelain properly helps to lessen pain in arthritis. It is also beneficial in inflammatory conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and rosacea.

Fruit juice intake in general has been associated with decreasing the risk of developing various types of cancers, preventing the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease and some studies indicate that it might prevent strokes.
