Fruit Fiesta

by Karen Brooks on November 5, 2009

Juices from real, fresh fruits are the healthiest ones. All other supposedly good juices are not as good as everyone says.

On the market you can very rarely see 100 percent natural juices. Most of them contain lots of sugar and other harmful substances. Not even to mention that these juices are imported from abroad and are additionally mixed with lots of water. When juices are left outside the refrigerator on high temperature, they lose the quality of vitamin C and amino acids they contain and the carbohydrates inside become very harmful for your body.

Nectar is a very artificial drink which is obtained from concentrate, sugar, water, and sometimes citric acid and vitamin C are added for good flavor.

Therefore: Try to eat if possible fruits from the list below. Buy the freshest fruits, get a juicer (liquidizer or a mixer) and drink as much as you want. Enjoy the great tastes of fresh and delicious fruits and live healthy.

Citrus juices

Orange juice is rich in vitamin C, minerals and antioxidants. In addition to keep our body slim, the orange juice contains substances that could prevent us from getting stomach, mouth or throat caner.

Lemon juice contains a lot of minerals, vitamin C and lemon acid. You can squeeze the juice from half a lemon and mix it with half to one glass of hot water. It is extremely helpful for gastrointestinal disorders, kidney stones and impaired metabolism.

Grapefruit is the partner of lemons. According to many people it has a little better taste than lemons. However, it all depends on your own taste and whether you like bitterer fruits. The grapefruit is famous with its dietary and medical usefulness. It improves digestion, lowers blood pressure; it improves the normal functioning of the liver and restores strength. If you are one of the many people who have a high blood pressure or feel constantly tired, a fresh grapefruit juice is a great choice for you. Try to have a 1/4 cup of fresh grapefruit juice 20-30 minutes before every meal, and if you can?t sleep well at night, have half a glass before your go to bed.

Juices from berries
