        The Nutritional Benefits of Orange Juices

        Orange juice is imbued with many nutrients, including vitamin C, folate, potassium, magnesium, and thiamin – and in fortified juices, vitamin D and calcium. Studies have shown that people who incorporate orange juice in their diets tend to be healthier and have higher physical activity levels than those who do not. Furthermore, orange juice has been recognized to boost the immune system as its vitamins and minerals encourage the protection and production of immune cells.

        Vitamin D found in fortified in 100% orange juice plays a critical role in regulating and strengthening the immune system to fight against bacteria and viruses. Additionally, orange juice has numerous plant compounds such as color carotenoids and flavonoids that are beneficial to supporting the immune system by inhibiting the production of inflammatory cytokines and facilitating intercellular communication. Compared to other foods and beverages that contain added sugar, 100% orange juice comprises only natural sugars and comes with many health benefitting nutrients such as vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Research has also shown that those who drink orange tend to have lower sugar intake than those who do not.
