Salvere Blog: Fruit Juice

If someone suggested drinking a glass of fruit juice daily, what thought initially pops into your mind? Show of hands if you thought no because of something regarding how much sugar it contains?
Now, show of hands if you think drinking a glass of red wine provides heart healthy benefits? How many of you would be more accepting of drinking a glass of wine a day for health benefits vs a glass of fruit juice? I’m talking, real, 100% pure, real fruit juice — Like concord grape, pineapple, grapefruit or something along those lines.
Recently, I started listening to a book on how we hear certain messages without even knowing and the author brought up this topic of red wine and the health benefits. So, wine vs fruit juice– advertisements tout the benefits of glass of wine a day for heart health …. Yet what conversations do we have regarding fruit juice? Look below at my quick google search for “wine” and “fruit juice”.
As an adult, when’s the last time you drank juice? Do you still give your child juice? Maybe the benefits of antioxidants and such make revisiting a daily dose of juice worth investigating??
