Fruit juice vs fizzy drinks

Fruit juice vs fizzy drinks

The amount of sugar that can be found in fruit juice is significantly higher than in fizzy drinks. Studies suggest that too much sugar can put us at risk for health problems such as obesity, diabetes, or tooth decay.

However, pure fruit juice does contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that cannot be found in fizzy drinks. Generally, fruit juices are better for you in terms of warding off infection or inflammation and boosting your immune system.
