A nutritionist, Dr. Bisi Abiola, has recommended 100 per cent fruit juice for people desirous to live healthy, saying it would help them live a disease-free life.
Abiola, who is also the Managing Director of Indulge Nigeria Limited, explained in her monthly wellness dialogue, a platform aimed at correcting the misinformation about fruit juice intake, that drinking fruit juice is good because the human body absorbs its nutrients faster than solid food and whole fruits.
She said a glass of grape juice is a good choice for managing weight and blood sugar level, adding that orange juice contains a chockfull of calcium, a healthful dose of Vitamin C, increases the level of citrate in urine and reduces crystalisation of uric acid.
She stated that fruit juice helps to slow down kidney stone formation among people with history of the condition and has no scientific link with obesity.
She revealed that juice-cleanse aids weight loss, but warned that the exercise is a crash diet and its impact could only be sustained if the individual involved does not return to his/her normal lifestyles after the exercise.
