Fruit juices can be quite misleading. We think they’re super healthy because they’re made with fruits however, fruit juices aren’t always as healthy as they seem.
Most fruit juices:
- Are high in sugar
- Are high in calories
- Include additives and preservatives
- Lack the fiber you get from the peel and pulp of the fruit
Even 100% natural fruit juice is loaded with natural sugars, and although natural sugars are healthier, they should be consumed in moderation as well.
So, always go for 100% natural with no additives and keep it to a minimum. You’ll get way more benefits by drinking a glass of water and eating the actual fruit.
