Drink only 100% fruit juice
Washington: Fruit juice drinkers were more likely than non-consumers to meet recommended levels of certain key nutrients, reveal researchers at the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center and Baylor College of Medicine.
The new study examined a nationally representative sample of adults 19 years of age and older and found that drinking 100 percent fruit juice was closely linked to improved nutrient intake.
According to the research team, adults who did not drink fruit juice were more likely to fall below recommended levels for several key nutrients, including vitamins A and C and magnesium.
Additionally, a greater percentage of those consuming fruit juice exceeded recommended levels for calcium and potassium – two important minerals for promoting bone health and regulating blood pressure.
The study was presented today at the American Dietetic Association Annual Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo.
