Yes, we know, oranges have vitamin C and you need vitamin C to help your immune system and THAT’s why we drink orange juice when we’re sick, right?
Well you’re off to the right start, the general public consumes orange juice for immune support for it’s vitamin C content, but is it really effective? The main thing that’s effective about buying OJ when you’re ill is its cost. Orange juice is relatively cheap compared to most juices, which is why it’s the most common juice known for vitamin C. It’s cheap to make and cheap to sell. But there are actually many more alternatives for you and your children that have way more vitamin C, (as well as many other immune supporting nutrients) and they are much better for your health.
Did you know, berries like blueberry, strawberry, and blackberry all contain more vitamin C per concentration than oranges? They are also much more rich in other essential vitamins and anti oxidants that help support your immune system. Drinking a mixed berry juice like our Immune Boost can be far more beneficial to your health than drinking plain old OJ.
Most orange juices actually contain very little orange juice! Many brands use synthetic additives, water down the juice, and add a lot of sugar. This means that you’re barely getting vitamin C and instead you’re consuming harmful ingredients. This is why natural cold pressed juice is far healthier than other juices. They usually don’t contain any additives and are much higher in nutritional content.
So the next time you’re feeling under the whether and go to pick up a bottle of orange juice, try a cold pressed alternative with berries instead! It taste better, feels better, and can help make you better.
