This post is sponsored by Simply Beverages, but all opinions expressed are my own. Unless you live under a rock, you know about the food pyramid. This handy tool tells us how much of what foods we are supposed to eat each day to stay healthy. When it comes to how much fruit we are supposed to eat, depending on which organization you query, it can range from 1.5 to 4.5 cups per day. Now that does not sound like a lot, but it can add up when you are doing it every day. Many people only have a handful of fruits they prefer, so that can lead to boredom pretty quickly. That is why many people prefer to drink fruit juice in addition to the fresh fruits they buy. Here are 3 reasons why this is a good idea:

3 Reasons You Should Drink Fruit Juice Each Day

3 Reasons You Should Drink Fruit Juice Each Day

  1. Get It In One Glass: You need fresh fruits and veggies in your diet, that is a fact. To eat them in their raw form can be a lot of added bulk you are not used to. Instead, drinking fruit juice condenses that intake into a reasonable amount. I would rather drink a glass of juice than eat 8 oranges every day! (http://www.discountjuicers.com/healthbenefits.html)
  2. Added Health Benefits: When you drink juice, you are adding much needed antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and nutrients. These help you repair your body and boost your immune system. (http://njaes.rutgers.edu/pubs/fs542/)
  3. Lower You Risk Of Disease: When you drink one glass of juice, you can reduce your risk of heart disease by more than 20%. If you drink 3 glasses per day, you can also reduce your risk of lung cancer by more than 25%. (http://www.discountjuicers.com/healthbenefits.html)
