Thanks for your input. I will make sure to get my nutrients from whole foods rather than from juice.

Thanks for your help. Much appreciated. Sure wish I wouldn't have had any. Going to give the rest of it away.

Also be very careful to read the serving sizes. I don't know about actually healthy drinks, but things like Gatoraid are for 1/2 a cup, and most people drink the whole bottle which is 2 or even 4 servings. It's a gimmick for them, but worth verifying on your drink.

"natural" fruit sugars are more healthy than added white sugar, but only by a bit. sugar is sugar. and the fact that it is in juice form, means it will go right to your blood stream unless you are eating it with food.

If you enjoy drinking the juice, and you're able to drink it within your recommended daily calorie range, it won't do any harm. However, keep in mind that with a balanced diet, you could get similar amounts of nutrients by combining various whole foods.

I bought a bottle of ACAI+10 Superblend juice. It has a fair bit of nourishment in it but has 26 g sugar in each serving (8.45 oz). Is natural sugar in fruit as bad as regular sugar? Should I stay away from this even though it has 90% Vitamin C, 80% Manganese, 50% Vitamin K etc.? I rarely drink juice but now I'm wondering about this.
