Drinking a glass of fruit juice each day is a great way to increase your intake of important nutrients and maintain a healthy diet.

What is Fruit Juice?
There are many choices of beverages to choose from and so it’s important to understand the health benefits associated with the array of products on the market. Sweetened beverages and fruit and vegetable juices have one main difference. In particular, sweetened beverages have had caloric sweeteners added. Examples of these include soft and fruit drinks. Nippy’s fruit and vegetable juices are made up of the liquid taken directly from the fruit and vegetables. Nippys juices don’t have caloric sweeteners added and are considered 100% juice.
Vitamin C is an important nutrient in order to maintain a healthy diet. Drinking Nippy’s orange juice will provide you with 200% of the recommended intake of vitamin C. Vitamin C is also a powerful anti-oxidant and contributes towards a strong immune system, healthy teeth, bones and skin.
The body needs folates to keep our DNA in good shape and assist during growth and development stages. Children and adults both require folic acid to produce healthy red blood cells and keep a healthy heart. A glass of Nippy’s fruit juice can provide up to 40% of the recommended daily intake.
Potassium assists in the functioning of nerves and reduces the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. Orange juice is a great source of potassium.
Phyto-nutrients are naturally occurring compounds that can be found in plants and are rich in dietary fibers and anti-oxidants. These compounds have been found to help the body battle cancer and heart disease.
