Though research proves that there are many health benefits of drinking orange juice, there are flip sides, too.
- For instance, excessive drinking of orange juice can harm your tooth enamel and wear it down. The acidic reaction on the teeth harms the enamel and the gum and causes sensitive teeth.5
- What is really harmful to your health is sugar-sweetened orange. It has an adverse effect on your sugar levels, bone joints, and weight. While, freshly squeezed unadulterated orange juice supplies a good dose of healing antioxidants, packaged orange drinks with extra sugar added can lead to weight gain. It also leads to metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.6
- By drinking sugar-sweetened orange juice with high levels of fructose, you are at a higher level of risk of developing gout, a common, and very painful inflammatory arthritis.7
Adding orange juice to your daily diet does aid in weight loss. If you are concerned about fructose levels or looking to add more fiber to your diet, then having a whole fruit is just as good. Having an orange instead of the juice also keeps you fuller longer.
