The 5 best juices for better health after the age of 50

Drinking 100% fresh juice can be an easy and delicious way to get some essential nutrients that you might find difficult to get otherwise.

Getting older means that your body will have different nutritional needs, and it can sometimes be difficult to get them from just the meals we eat throughout the day.

That's why nutritionists recommend drinking some of the best juices you can have after age 50, according to Eat this Not that.

"Orange juice fortified with vitamin D is a great option for older people, because vitamin D is often deficient in the diet," said dietitian Shaina Jaramillo. She also added that "it's important to get enough vitamin D to support bone health as we age."

Pomegranate juice; Pomegranate is very high in antioxidants, such as polyphenols, which have been shown to help lower levels of inflammation and blood pressure, which can be very important for those who suffer from joint pain, or have high levels of stress.

Another unique benefit of pomegranate is anti-aging properties, such as urolithin A, which helps strengthen muscle and mitochondrial health, says Courtney D'Angelo, author of Go Wellness.

Beetroot juice; beetroot lovers can rejoice at the fact that this earthy root vegetable is packed with health benefits. Research has shown that beetroot is beneficial for lowering blood pressure and preventing cognitive decline, two common problems among the elderly.

In one study looking at older adults, a diet of two cups of beetroot juice in the morning was linked to increased blood flow in the brain in an area that helps boost working memory.

Plum juice The fourth juice, prunes, can benefit your body more than most people realize.

Studies have shown that 4 to 10 prunes a day prevent bone loss in postmenopausal women, likely due to their boron content. Prune juice is a great way to boost bone health.

Jamu juice: fifth and final juice on our list, Jamu, which originated in Indonesia and is made with many anti-inflammatory and high-antioxidant ingredients such as turmeric, ginger, honey, and lemon.

Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory, which can help improve joint and digestive health, among many other things.

Ginger is unique for weight loss in that it contains compounds known as gingerols and shogaols.

These compounds create an antioxidant effect in the body that reduces free radical damage in the body.
