Cranberry juice has always been a staple drink in our home for the past years. My dad is a big fan of it along with apple juice and broccoli juice; he never fails to buy every week, though it never struck me to regularly drink cranberry juice because, one, it was a bit too sour; second, I just never felt the need. But this may all have changed after I attended the very informative talk given by Fly Ace Corporation a week back, held at the beautiful Alba Restaurante Español along Tomas Morato.
Old Orchard is actually recognized as the second largest frozen juice brand and the 4th largest bottled juice brand in the USA. They have a wide selection that caters to different age groups from kids to adults.
Ms. Jasmine Capule, Fly Ace Corporation’s Product Manager, discussed Old Orchard’s Love Your Kidney campaign as well as all the information we need to know regarding the advantages of regularly consuming cranberry juice and how we can properly take care of our kidneys.
Here’s what we all need to know:
The kidneys are 2 bean-shaped organs that extract waste from blood, balance body fluids, from urine, and aid in other important functions of the body. When it comes to components of the urinary system, the kidneys are multi-talented powerhouses of activity. These organs are crucial for waste excretion (the kidneys filter our toxins, excess salts and urea — a nitorgen-based waste created by cell metabolism), water level balancing, blood pressure regulation, red blood cell regulation and acid regulation.
Because of all these vital functions and the toxins they encounter, the kidneys are susceptible to various problems or complications like acute kidney failure. This is the condition when the kidneys suddenly lose their ability to function properly due to infection, blood-clotting disorders, decreased blood flow caused by low blood pressure, acute tubular necrosis (death of the tubular cells that deliver urine to the ureters), autoimmune kidney disorders, urinary tract infections and complications from pregnancy. Did you know that kidney failure is the 9th leading cause of death among Pinoys?
But don’t worry, we can all do something about this! Let us build awareness of the significance of consuming cranberry juice with the help of Old Orchard’s Love Your Kidney campaign.
Cranberry juice has been proven in several studies to reduce the risk of urinary tract infections due to the proanthrocyanidin content and hippuric acid that helps prevent bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract. Other wonderful effects of drinking cranberry juice include better defense against heart disease and it has anti-cancer properties, Vitamin C and dietary fiber. It also decreases the probabilities of having dental caries.
Each 8-ounce serving of 100% Old Orchard Cranberry Juice counts as two servings of fruit! The American Cancer Society recommends that we eat five servings of fruits and veggies each day, so Old Orchard 100% Juices can definitely help us meet this “five-a-day” goal. Also, cranberry juice helps prevent kidney disorders.
Cranberry juice is not the cure for kidney diseases but it is a way of preventing it from happening and worsening. This is a precautionary action to better protect our kidneys.
Old Orchard comes in the following variants: Juice Cocktails (Apple Cranberry, Apple Raspberry, Apple, Cranberry, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Apple Blueberry and Apple Berry), 100% Juices (100% Apple Juice and 100% Grape Juice), Healthy Balance Juice Cocktails (Healthy Balance Cranberry and Healthy Balance Apple Cranberry), and Organic 100% Apple Juice.
Attending this event certainly made me think that it’s never too late to challenge myself to adapt a healthier lifestyle! Here’s a meal plan that you can pair with drinking Old Orchard Cranberry Juice Cocktail. With the Old Orchard Cranberry Juice in your daily balanced diet, you get to take care of your kidneys while enjoying the sweet, tangy flavor of cranberries! Love your kidneys and keep healthy with Old Orchard Cranberry Juice!
