A study in the Experimental Biology (EB) reveals
that, the children who consume fruit juices daily have a superior nutrient level
when compared to the children, who were non- consumers.
The daily drinkers have significant supply of vitamin, magnesium and potassium.
Along with the study at Experimental Biology (EB), two independent studies from
Baylor College of Medicine and State University Agricultural Center, also
confirm the benefits of drinking fruit juices which are 100% preservative free.
The data was taken from the 2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination
Survey (NHANES) for the year 2003-2006. With direct connection to increase in
the consumption of whole grains and wheat, the health of the children was much
better than the non-consumers.
Drinking juices daily also confirmed that the Healthy eating Index was also
elevated. Non- consumers usually don not even meet the recommended levels of the
nutrients in the body. Due to lack of healthy eating practices, the levels of
nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin A and folate are pretty low. This condition
can also lead to various diseases like scurvy. The condition of low nutrients
also leads to various other deficiency diseases.
More awareness and practices should be applied to increase the consumption of
juices for a healthy lifestyle.
