Not all juices are a nutritional no-no. In fact, we found several types of healthy juices that are packed with benefits. (Just don’t guzzle them down by the gallon.)

Orange juice: May prevent inflammation

Other research also shows that drinking a couple of glasses of orange juice prevents the inflammation that can be triggered by a high-fat meal, per 2017 research in the journal Food & Function.
