All about antioxidants
Heard a lot about antioxidants, but still not really sure where to find them and what they’ll do for you once you get them in your system?
Well, naturally occurring antioxidants are everywhere – and they’re found in fruit, vegetables, fruit and vegetable juice and cereals. Basically, antioxidants protect the cells of the body from damage by free radicals. Free radicals are like the bad guys in your body – thought to trigger the initial phase of several diseases by damaging cells and occurring naturally, but can be increased by things like smoking. Naturally occurring antioxidants destroy free radicals and therefore can reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.
Want to know about the different kinds of antioxidants and where you can find them? Here are a few:
Catechins: black and green tea.
Natural vs. Artifical Sugar
So what’s the difference between a soft drink and juice?
Quite a bit really. Our freshly squeezed juices contain nothing but whole fruit, which contains lots of vitamins, which we all need to stay healthy! Soft drinks, on the other hand, have minimal nutritional value.
WHAT ABOUT SUGAR?
Per 100ml, the juices on our menu have less sugar than a can of soft drink. And the only sugar contained in our juices is fructose, which naturally occurs from fruit (we call this good sugar).
DO WE ADD ANY SUGAR TO OUR JUICES?
Simply, no. All our freshly squeezed juices contain is whole fruit and vegies (and some ice if you want it cold!). We make all your juices in front of you, so feel free to watch us if you want to be sure!
