Each 8-ounce glass of Florida’s Natural® 100% Florida orange juice is not only packed with vitamin C—it’s loaded with a bunch of other healthful benefits too, like folate, potassium and thiamin, just to name a few. In fact, OJ has more good stuff in it than most other 100% juices.
Vitamin C – We Told You SoYeah, you probably knew this one, but it’s a big deal. Vitamin C is a really important antioxidant, and just one 8-ounce glass of orange juice provides well over 100% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C.
We’re Pro-AntioxidantsWe need antioxidants, like vitamin C, because they may help neutralize free radicals formed as part of the body’s natural oxidation processes. Many scientists believe free radicals may damage cells and tissues over time, causing all sorts of ailments.
Potassi…yum!Why should bananas get all the glory? Each 8-ounce glass of 100% OJ is a good, refreshing and drinkable source of potassium. Diets containing foods that are good sources of potassium and low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.
Your Heart Will Love It, TooResearch suggests that 100% Florida orange juice may help with healthy blood cholesterol levels, blood pressure and blood vessel function, along with other heart-friendly benefits. While many factors affect heart disease, diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Fat-FreeEach 8-ounce serving of orange juice is naturally fat-free, and at 110 calories per 8-ounce glass, has fewer calories than some other 100% fruit juices.
No Body Is Immune… To Great Taste!Research suggests that all the great stuff (such as vitamin C) in each 8-ounce glass may help support an all-around healthy immune system.
Dem Bones, Dem BonesFlorida’s Natural Orange Juice with Calcium and Vitamin D may have beneficial effects on bone health in children and adults. Adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Folate, For GOODNESS' SakeFolate is a water-soluble version of a B vitamin and is good for your brain and spine—two very important parts of the body. An 8-ounce glass of 100% Florida orange juice is a good source of natural folate and is one of the few 100% fruit juices that provides folate. Healthful diets with adequate folate may reduce a mother’s risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord birth defect.
Gimme Some SkinThe vitamin C in 100% Florida orange juice helps with collagen production, which helps with healthy skin and gums.
Mineral AbsorptionThe vitamin C found in OJ helps the absorption of certain types of iron (like the iron found in spinach). So we can help you get the most out of those vegetables.
ScurvyFor all you 18th-century sailors out there, a glass of OJ does wonders for this. In fact, we can actually guarantee that if you drink Florida’s Natural every day, you will not develop scurvy. Arrrgh!
