Uncle Matt’s Juices: Just What the Doctor Ordered!
With this decade’s worst cold and flu season in full swing, it’s good to know that Mother Nature provides natural ways to fight back. Adequate vitamin C intake is key to shortening the duration of sickness, and juices high in vitamin C will help get you there fast. In fact, the right 100% fruit juices should be an essential part of your diet when you have a cold to shorten its duration and get you back to full health.
And we’re happy to announce that Uncle Matt’s Organic orange and grapefruit juice make the list for “Best Cold-Fighting Juices.” They are both excellent naturally-derived sources of vitamin C. And what’s more, all of Uncle Matt’s juices are U.S.A.-grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and herbicides.
One 8 oz. serving of orange juice provides 154% of the daily-recommended intake of vitamin C, while 8 ounces of grapefruit juice provides 134%. Both juices supply 1% of zinc, an essential mineral proven to boost immunity.
So besides stocking up on Uncle Matt’s orange and grapefruit juices during your next bout with the flu, consider this healthy fact: drinking plenty of cold liquids, like grapefruit and orange juice, can also help relieve a runny nose, according to Joanne Larsen, MS, RD, LD.
