Organic freshly pressed juices are a fantastic way to support your diet and improve your health. Making the juices yourself is the ideal way to go. But, if like me, you don’t have a juicer or you know that you just won’t do it, then freshly pressed organic juices like Biona are a great alternative.
Here are some reasons why you might like to try some juices.
Heart Health: Grapes, red grape juice, and even red wine have antioxidants or polyphenols.
These polyphenols may help the cardiovascular system. Research indicates that they can help relax the blood vessels and may also reduce inflammation. Biona Organic Red Grape Juice is pressed from 100% certified organic grapes. It has a crisp, rich and naturally sweet, full-bodied flavour. One glass per day is a great addition to your diet. If you prefer you can have it with some ice or with a dash of sparkling water. Or use it to add some sweetness in cooking or in baking.
Urinary Health: I think most of you will be familiar with the health benefits of cranberries and their association with urinary tract infections. They contain proanthocyanidins, these compounds are believed to be what helps prevent UTI’s. They work by stopping bacteria from attaching to the lining of the urinary tract. Many people who suffer from recurring urinary tract infections find a glass of pure and organic cranberry does help to reduce the number of infections they get. Choose a juice with no added sugar like Biona Pure Cranberry Juice. Cranberries have a tart flavour, you can mix it with sugar free pure apple juice, or to your favourite smoothie.
Eye Health: Blueberries have a strong association with eye health and are one of the most commonly used berries in eye health supplements. Blueberries are rich in antioxidants that help support the collagen structure in the retina and help protect vision. There is also some research suggesting that they may be useful to improve measures of cognitive performance. Biona’s Organic Pure Blueberry juice has no preservatives or additives. It has a sweet mellow flavour and is a very nutritious juice. You can add it to water or mix with another juice, or add it to yoghurt or porridge.
Top up your diet with organic and freshly pressed juices.
