Captain Citrus Says . . . Go Orange Juice!
Drinking 100% Florida orange juice can help you get more fruit in your diet. As part of a healthy meal, orange juice offers these benefits and more:
Vitamin C helps the body make connective tissue. This vitamin also helps support the healing process and the immune system.
The potassium in orange juice helps muscles work properly. It also supports the cardiovascular system.
Folate is needed to help form the cells that are part of the growing process. One kind of cell that folate helps produce is the red blood cell. Red blood cells supply oxygen to the body. This helps people have the energy needed to work and play.
Calcium and Vitamin D
For even more benefits, look for orange juice with added calcium or vitamin D. Calcium is a building block for strong bones. Vitamin D helps the body build or keep calcium in the bones.
In addition, 100% Florida orange juice is free of fat—naturally!
It has no sodium either. Though some sodium is good for the body, too much sodium can be harmful.
A glass of 100% Florida orange juice also has no cholesterol.
Florida orange juice is a good choice for what it has . . . and what it does not have!
