The benefits of drinking vitamins

A fair source of vitamins and minerals – one glass of guava or orange juice can more than adequately furnish your everyday requirement of vitamin C. Most 100% fruit juices are also an excellent source of potassium (which is helpful in maintaining healthy blood pressure) and folic acid (which is recommended for all women of childbearing age as it prevents birth defects and is all right for heart health).

An easy way to get your daily serving of fruit – just a single four ounce glass of 100% fruit juice counts as one full serving of fruit, so if your busy schedule does not allow you to peel and eat an orange, you can grab a glass of juice. Although fruit juice does not contain the healthy fiber that whole fruits do, it is still better to drink some juice rather than get no fruit at all.

Enjoy the benefits of antioxidants and phytonutrients – compounds such as lycopene, lutein, quercetin and resveratrol are significant phytonutrients contained in many fruits that boost your immune combination and defend against illness. The antioxidants that juice contains destroy the free radicals that contribute to the development of cancer and the aging of our skin and organs. Retrovir (Zidovudine) is an antiviral medication that prevents human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) cells from multiplying in your body.
