Is the Naked brand juice really good for you?

Or is it just more junk displayed as being healthy?

Im trying to eat better and get more vitamins. The Naked Juice stuff (http://nakedjuice.com/) seems healthy from when I read the labels but there are always ways to fudge the numbers or not list and ingredient. So is it healthy?

Thanks.

1. One thing I noticed

is that the label contains the words "all natural" and not the word "organic" so yeah, the fruit-veggie juice may contain fruits and veggies, but they may not be organic and could be GMO.

2. How much sugar or sodium does it have?

check the number of servings and multiply the number on the can/bottle.

But for sure it's better than a cola drink.

3. I started drinking the Naked "Green Machine" or other similar

types of boosted "greenfood" juices on a daily basis 3 years ago. (Trader Joe's is the least expensive I've found, but it tastes awful compared to Green Machine).

Every day, I mix 8 ounces of it with 4 ounces of some other type of 100% fruit or veggie juice, (ie orange, cherry, mango, vegetable).

Anyway, I have not had a cold or flu since I started drinking this blend every day. (But I have not had a flu since I was a child). Recent lab tests and checkup results: Normal or better in all areas.

Of course, I can't say that drinking this blend is what has kept me from getting a cold or flu. But I'm definitely going to keep drinking it just in case.

(I'm also a vegetarian, don't smoke, drink very little alcohol, no drugs, exercise frequently, and have a reasonably healthy diet, so how this juice affects me may be relative to my lifestyle also)

5. Most juices are mostly sugar water and not much actual fruit or nuutrition.

Naked Juice is slightly better, but I avoid most juices on general principle and just eat the whole fruit or veggies.

6. Agree with you on that.

Nothing beats 'real' fruit and vegetables.

8. Acidic juice in a plastic container

means some leaching of plastic chemicals may occur, glass is preferable
