Preparing an antioxidant fruit juice is one of the best ways, if not the best way, to consume fruits that are high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Your body easily absorbs the nutrients in these delicious fruit juices, and you’re able to mix multiple types of fruit within just one batch. Some people opt for powdered variations that simply require mixing with water (Navitas Naturals has quite a few of these), while others like to get fresh fruit and make juice themselves. Another choice for the busy homemaker is to order fruit juice from websites like Amazon.com and online health-conscious stores.
What are the best antioxidant fruit juices out there?
Acai berry juice is pretty high up on this list. When acai berries are harvested, they lose many of their nutrients quickly. This is why it’s important to have them freeze dried. Brands like Navitas Naturals turn these dried fruits into a powder that you can then mix with your favorite beverage or smoothie. Acquiring acai berries that have just been harvested isn’t plausible for many people, so the powders or frozen berries (to be used to prepare a juice) are a much better idea.
Aronia berry is also a fantastic antioxidant fruit. It is particularly great for juice because when eaten raw, the taste can be overwhelmingly astringent; however, when you turn it into a juice and add a natural sweetener (stay away from the processed ones), it’s much easier to handle the taste. Aronia berry extract has been noted to cause death in cancer cells within the medical community – just one way in which its antioxidant properties prove useful.
If you’re looking for a juice you can get locally without many problems, cranberry juice is the way to go. Cranberries contain flavonoids, which human bodies do not produce on their own. In order to reap the benefits of flavonoids (like an immune system strengthened against disease), humans must consume fruit. Cranberry juice is also high in quinic acid, which is why it’s wonderful against urinary tract infections (UTI).
