In the summer, summer, summertime, I especially enjoy breaking out of my plain ol’ water for hydration rut and shaking things up a bit (sometimes quite literally in fact). I drink sparkling water all year round (guess what’s on the Christmas list this year? Soda Stream, I’m looking at you) and tend to add a squeeze o’ lemon or lime, or lately the tops of strawberries for a spa-like refreshing beverage.
I also love adding splashes of lemonade, iced tea, or 100% juice to sparkling (or even still) water. I typically recommend limiting fruit juice consumption to no more than 4oz per day and pumping up the volume by diluting with water or sparkling/seltzer!
Now, Welch’s is a fruit juice brand that I can stand behind. They do the research (more than a decade’s worth, in fact). They seek expertise from health experts like registered dietitians. And they’re based not too far from Boston, in Massachusetts. Wins all around.
So what are the benefits of Welch’s, you ask? 100% Concord Grape Juice delivers antioxidants called polyphenols and has been shown to help support a healthy heart.
Welch’s 100% Grape Juice is made with Concord grapes, grown right here in North America by Welch’s co-operative of family farmers. The grapes are picked at their peak and pressed into juice within 8 hours of harvesting so that you get the best nutrient bang for your buck!
They also recently launched a delicious line of juices called Farmer’s Pick made with unfiltered juice which gives the product more body and flavor.
