I agree with JTBARRINGER re sugar not only in juice, but any dietary sugar (sugars can come from grains also). From what I've read, sugar disrupts your gut bacteria promoting dysbiosis. Continued dysbiosis (from food intolerances, medications, poor diet for example) promotes leaky gut. Probiotics help populate the gut lining which prevents bad bacteria/viruses from adhering or gaining access to the bloodstream.
Eating greens and non-pasteurized fermented foods are "pre-biotic" which means they feed the probiotic, so eating well all the time is crucial to immunity. For some overview:
