Fruit Juices are healthier than the fruits itself.

Fact

No, actually fruits are healthier than their juices because the process of extracting juice removes all the fiber present in the fruit. Fiber is essential as it aids digestion, relieves constipation and lowers blood cholesterol levels. It adds bulk to your diet and keeps you satiated for a longer period of time. If a glass of fruit juice is what you want to have, do not strain fruit juice so as to retain its fiber. Also resist the temptation to sweeten the juice with sugar to avoid loading it with empty calories.
