3 Juices That Can Actually Be Good for You

By Genevieve Cunningham

If you’ve ever looked into healthy eating, you may have noticed the big push toward drinking more water. Water is king. We’re told to stay away from soda, as it’s just empty calories and sugar and caffeine. We’re told to stay away from sports drinks unless we’re serious athletes. And we’re even advised to avoid juice! If this lack of flavor in your drinks sounds daunting, you might be in luck. Though drinking water is always a good idea, there may be a few juice options that are actually good for you. Take a look at these three healthy juices with big benefits that can boost your health and add a little flavor to your menu.

Orange Juice

Orange juice is one of the most common juices that you find in people’s refrigerators. So what is good about orange juice? It’s packed with Vitamin C, giving you about 70 percent of what you need for the day. It also contains traces of Vitamin A and magnesium, and contains very few calories. And for most people, the flavor of orange juice is familiar, making it a good option for the morning and for anyone who is hesitant to explore new choices.

Cranberry Juice

Cranberry juice can be tart, so you may want to ease into drinking this option. But if you can grow accustomed to the flavor, cranberries can bring a lot of health benefits into your life. This juice can provide you with doses of Vitamins C, A, and B. It also has trace amounts of magnesium, calcium, and iron. But perhaps the best benefit of this juice is its detoxifying abilities. Cranberry juice helps the kidneys in the waste removal process. So if you’re trying to keep the kidneys healthy, this can be a great juice to add to your life.

Pomegranate Juice

This juice, unlike the first two, doesn’t contain Vitamin C. In fact, it contains very little vitamins at all. But it does have a huge dose of potassium. This helps the body with blood sugar, and it can also aid in easing muscle cramps. It’s a delicious flavor, though if you’ve never had pomegranate, you may need to ease your mouth into it. This juice is heavier in calories and heavier in sugar, so if you choose to try this option, make sure that you drink in moderation.

Water is still the best option, but sneaking in a few glasses of juice from time to time isn’t the worst thing in the world. Use these juices to add some flavor and health benefits without harming your health. In small doses, juice can enhance your menu and your life with just the right amount of kick.
