JUICE DURING COLD AND FLU SEASON?

Since I am a diabetic, I don't drink fruit juice.  It is more important for me to eat the whole fruit.  But if diabetes is not a concern for you, it is suggested you drink juices that are high in vitamin C during cold and flu season.  Vitamin C is important in helping the immune system function well.  Studies show that people who regularly get vitamin C in their diets have shorter colds with milder symptoms*.  Juices suggested by doctors include orange, grapefruit, and papaya.


*Note this says, "Who regularly get vitamin C in their diets".  This is not a recommendation for taking vitamin C tablets, etc.
