Are fruit juices good or bad for health?

Fruit juices are good for your health. They contain a lot of vitamins the same as eating the fruits themselves. Just make sure that the juice you are drinking is more of the juice from the fruit less to no artificial flavouring and colouring added to the juice to make it more appealing and tastier. Pure fruit juice is the way to go.

Lack of fibre is the key problem . Juicing releases the sugars in fruit and removes the insoluble fibre; blending also releases the sugars and tears apart theinsoluble fibre. Most of the sugar in fruit is fructose, which can only be processed by the liver. A small amount of fructose, in an apple for example, does us no harm because we consume it along with the fibre. Fibre protects us against the effects of fructose by slowing its absorption, and also makes us feel full. Fruit juice, on the other hand, is absorbed immediately, like all sugary drinks, as the fibre has been removed. 
Some experts say that drinking fructose in liquid form stops the liver from doing its job properly, which is linked to a range of health problems, including obesity, type-2 diabetes and increased fat production, including in the liver itself.

Fruit juices are good for your health. In healthy portions. Adding sweeteners may make it more problematic to people trying to lose weight, but when put next to other choices, it could be worse.

  • Fruits are GOOD for You...

### The way Nature made fruits is with a lot of fiber and seeds.. and they are actually meant to be had as a whole to provide a holistic nutritional dose to us..

### Fruit juices may give you a good boost in energy but that is basically because of your sugar level in the bloody shooting to the bloody rooftop...!!

### Prolonged intake of fruit juices be it all natural or otherwise is also a cause of lifestyle disease called Diabetes hence leading to other organ failures in the long run due to diabetes..

There is plenty more research going on and so many old "GOOD HABITS" are getting re-rested and time tested...

  • ...But just the juice may do more harm than Good ###

I think it is unhealthy in some ways.. In fact, fruit juice contains just as much sugar and calories as a sugary soft drink... and sometimes even more. The small amounts of vitamins and antioxidants in the juice do not make up for the large amount of sugar.

Yes, I've read quite a few studies on it and they are indeed healthy.
