With flu and cold season taking down immune systems left and right, people are suddenly much more excited about orange juice. Sales of orange juice spiked last month for the first time in almost five years, according to Nielsen data.
For almost a decade the orange juice industry has been suffering because people have moved onto to beverages that are marketed as healthier and less sugary.
Vitamin C can calm a cold a bit but experts say depending on the brand, a glass of orange juice can have more calories and grams of sugar than a Snickers Bar. Might be better off going directly to the source with something like Emergen-C.
