100% Orange juice
All Beckers Bester products are made from 100% natural ingredients. No artificial food colouring, artificial aromas and preservatives.
The term “Direct Juice” used to describe fruits freshly pressed and gently pasteurised. It is first filtered and then pasteurized for preservation by heating gently at temperature between 80 °C and 85 °C. Direct juice is then filled and immediately transported to the consumer or stored sterilely in tanks for subsequent filling process.
Direct juice is juice in its most primal form. These premium juices are of a higher quality than those from concentrates, being packaged just as they are pressed from the fruit. Flavours, freshness and nutrition can all be retained in the juice.
1. Rich in Several Important Nutrients
Orange juice is high in many nutrients, including vitamin C, folate, and potassium.
Orange juice is a concentrated source of vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin that doubles as a powerful antioxidant and plays a central role in immune function.
Additionally, vitamin C helps promote bone formation, wound healing, and gum health.
Orange juice is also rich in folate, which is needed for DNA synthesis and supports fetal growth and development.
Not to mention, it’s an excellent source of the mineral potassium, which regulates blood pressure, prevents bone loss, and protects against heart disease and stroke.
2. High in Antioxidants
Antioxidants in orange juice promote health by preventing oxidative damage — an imbalance between antioxidants and unstable molecules known as free radicals.
Research shows that antioxidants are crucial to maintaining overall health. They may even help protect against chronic conditions, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
Orange juice is a good source of antioxidants like flavonoids, carotenoids, and ascorbic acid.
One 8-week study found that drinking 25 ounces (750 ml) of orange juice daily increased antioxidant status significantly.
Another study had similar findings, reporting that drinking 20 ounces (591 ml) of orange juice daily for 90 days increased total antioxidant status in 24 adults with high cholesterol and triglycerides.
Plus, in a study in over 4,000 adults, orange juice was considered one of the top sources of antioxidants in the average American diet — alongside tea, berries, wine, supplements, and vegetables.
3. May Help Prevent Kidney Stones
Kidney stones are small mineral deposits that accumulate in your kidneys, often causing symptoms like severe pain, nausea, or blood in your urine.
Orange juice can increase the pH or urine, making it more alkaline. Studies show that having a higher, more alkaline urinary pH may aid in preventing kidney stones.
One small study observed that orange juice was more effective than lemonade at reducing several kidney stone risk factors.
Another study in 194,095 people found that those who consumed orange juice at least once daily had a 12% lower risk of developing kidney stones than those who drank less than one serving a week.
4. May Improve Heart Health
Heart disease is a serious problem, accounting for over 17 million deaths worldwide each year.
Some studies show that drinking orange juice may reduce several risk factors for heart disease — such as high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol — and help keep your heart healthy and strong.
For example, one study in 129 people found that long-term orange juice consumption lowered levels of both total and “bad” LDL cholesterol.
Furthermore, a review of 19 studies noted that drinking fruit juice was effective at decreasing diastolic blood pressure in adults.
Orange juice has also been shown to increase levels of “good” HDL cholesterol in people with elevated levels — which could improve heart health.
5. May Decrease Inflammation
Acute inflammation is a normal part of the immune response designed to protect against disease and infection.
However, sustaining high levels of inflammation long term is thought to contribute to the development of chronic disease.
Elevated markers of inflammation like C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) have all been seen in conditions like metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and certain cancers.
Some studies suggest that orange juice could decrease inflammation and problems tied to it.
One review found that orange juice possesses anti-inflammatory properties that may reduce levels of specific inflammatory markers tied to chronic disease.
Moreover, an 8-week study in 22 people showed that drinking both fresh and commercial orange juice decreased markers of inflammation like CRP and IL-6 — which could potentially aid in disease prevention.
