Fight Back Cold and Flu Season With These SJC Juices

06_sunshine_orangeFirst up is Orange! This juice is delicious and kiddos love it, too. It’s not sticky sweet like grocery store OJ, because we don’t add the extra sugars, but once you try it you’ll be hooked!

How it’s a fighter: Our Orange Juice is high in Vitamin C! With regards to the immune system, vitamin C enhances the activities of immune cells such as monocytes, lymphocytes and leukocytes. It specifically improves the activities of white blood cells, which target and destroy microbes such as the viruses responsible for colds and the flu.

 

04_sunshine_upbeetNext up is UpBeet! This juice is part of our cleanse line and has a bit of sweetness with a kick.

How it’s a fighter: One of the key ingredients in this juice is Turmeric. The chemical compound in turmeric contains potent antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-cancer and anti-bacterial properties. Turmeric is also considered a natural antibiotic!

 

 

05_sunshine_pinkdrinkThe sweet and tart juice that is Pink Drink is next on the list!

How it’s a fighter: Again with double the Vitamin C which you are high in both grapefruit and beets and top it off with apples, making this juice a health trifecta. You know how they say “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”…? There’s a reason that saying starting circulating.

 

 

03_sunshine_meangreenAnother of our favs is Mean Green!

How it’s a fighter: Mean Green is packed with healthy greens. The darker the greens, the higher the nutrient content. So when you’re shoring up your defenses for cold and flu season, choose arugula and kale for great health benefits! Added lemon gives the citrus powerhouse of Vitamin C, making this a great defense.
