The Juice Revolution knows whats good for you and these four fruits combined make for a tasty and healthy drink.
Apart from being delicious, orange juice is rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, improves circulation and boosts the immune system.
Grapefruit juice is quite rich in potassium and vitamin C, so it is one of the best treatments for issues related to urination often caused by liver, kidney or heart problems. Furthermore, its high potassium content works as a vasodilator, meaning that blood vessels and arteries relax, thereby reducing blood pressure and lessening the risk of heart attack and stroke. Also, increased levels of potassium have been associated with higher cognitive function because of increased blood and oxygen flow to the brain!
Limes contain unique flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. In addition to their unique phytonutrient properties, limes are an excellent source of vitamin C, one of the most important antioxidants in nature. Vitamin C travels through the body neutralizing any free radicals with which it comes into contact in the aqueous environments in the body both inside and outside cells. Since free radicals can damage blood vessels and can change cholesterol to make it more likely to build up in artery walls, vitamin C can be helpful for preventing the development and progression of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease.
Cranberry juice is an excellent preventative measure against urinary tract and bladder infections. High in vitamins A and C, iodine and calcium, studies have even found that cranberry juice can prevent the formation of plaque on your teeth!
