Bid adieu to pesky viruses with these:

- Pineapple Juice
- Apple Juice
- Calamansi Juice
This article comes in a timely manner because now more than ever, people are more conscious and careful not to get sick. As it’s also known to everyone, the present times present a two-year battle with the notorious virus, COVID-19. Through the recent years, the priorities of people have changed. Before, going to work with the common cough and colds is acceptable and not a big deal. Now, health is at utmost priority and getting infected with anything, minute or big, is a big no-no.
For these very reasons, it’s of vital importance to keep your diet healthy holistically. It is time to pull out unnecessary consumables and to stop patronizing products from food manufacturing companies in the Philippines that don’t fall under “health-giving”. From the littlest of food consumed, like snacks, down to beverages you consume, it’s best to keep them beneficial and immunity-boosting.
Here, Chemag gives sole focus to the nourishing fruit juices that can help you to combat all kinds of viruses.
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is what oranges are best known for. Cue the use of orange flavored vitamins and the fruit front and center in several packagings. It’s important to eat food that contain this vitamin because the body is incapable of producing it. Hence, the value of oranges and Vitamin C-potent food go up significantly.
Ascorbic acid is essential because it aids the growth and repair of tissue all over the body. If you’re dealing with inflammation or wounds, it also helps to heal wounds and repair your broken cells. More importantly, it fights of free radicals in the body that cause sickness like cancer and heart disease.
Besides Vitamin C, pineapples also boast of a hefty amount of B vitamins. These help to boost immunity by forming new red blood cells which carry oxygen to your organs and tissues. Not only that, without these, your body will have difficulty processing energy from the food you eat. And with no energy naturally comes a feeble and weak feeling body. To get to the specifics, the B vitamins included in each healthy dose and cup of pineapple juice are thiamin, niacin, B6 and folate.
Surely, reading the above just made drinking Chemag Pineapple juice even more satisfying!
“An apple a day, keeps the doctor away,” is not just some old saying. There’s actual value and wisdom behind it because apples are more than just a delicious juicy fruit. Just like oranges and pineapples, this bulbous fruit boasts of a considerable amount of Vitamin C. In fact, one medium-sized apple or a cup already satisfies 10% of the recommended daily Vitamin C values.
It is also quite rich in polyphenols, which is a group of antioxidants. Consuming this drink also helps to keep your digestive system healthy because it also has loads of fiber, especially in its skin. So, the next time you start peeling an apple, think twice! You don’t want all those fiber going to waste.
It’s no surprise that placing lemon in all kinds of drinks is a popular doing. A few slices in your beverage already offers a bunch of health benefits. How much more when you actually drink lemonade itself?
Lemons are an excellent source of Vitamin C. Chemag has already covered the vitamin’s role in combating diseases by fighting off free radicals and repairing tissues. However, the range of its arsenal of abilities does not stop there—it also has the capacity to significantly lower blood pressure.
Of course, what Filipino would forget about including Calamansi Juice in this healthy list. Calamansi, or calamondin as it is also fondly called, is renowned for its potent Vitamin C content. The sour taste serves all the aforementioned Vitamin C benefits plus helping the body to absorb and retain iron.
That capacity is notable because iron is vital in fighting viruses. Being deficient in it means that your body’s first line of defense against pathogens, non-specific immunity, is compromised. This leaves you more vulnerable to infection and disease.
With that in though, make sure to always take your daily dose of Chemag Calamansi juice to stay protected!
Healthy na, Yummy pa!
