First let’s look at juice. If you drink juice at all, it should be diluted. (Best case scenario, ¼ juice to ¾ water.)
Yes, juice is made from fruit & fruit is loaded with nutrients that are good for us. The unfortunate thing about juice is that most, if not all of the fiber has been removed from the fruit, so you are left with the nutrients, water, and sugar. This can create a big spike in our blood sugar, resulting in health complications like insulin resistance and blood sugar imbalances. This is especially dangerous for diabetics.
Next time you are at the grocery, look at the amount of sugar per serving, many of the small bottles have upwards of 50 grams of sugar per bottle. That is the equivalent to more than 12 teaspoons of sugar. Even though it is a natural sugar (if you are buying pure juice), it is still sugar. Sugar leads to inflammation, insulin resistance and also feeds cancer cells.
