Combat the Flu with Indian River Select


I had a near-death experience last year when I got the flu. It caught up with me at the worst possible time and place: on a girls’ trip with friends in New Orleans. Instead of enjoying everything the Big Easy had to offer like jambalaya, crawfish, and beignets, I was holed up in my hotel room feeling miserable. The pounding from the fever happening in my head felt like the thumping of a Second Line Parade. I returned to Tampa, missed several days from work, and lost ten pounds because I couldn’t keep food down. Luckily, I managed to not infect my children and husband, who were quarantined. (And let’s be honest, there is no sickness worse than a “man cold.”)

This year, I’m doing everything possible to prevent me and my family from having another horrific run-on with the flu. 

Where are we starting? With Indian River Select’s juice.

As background, I’ve been a long-time purchaser of this juice. Born and raised in Florida, I’ve been drinking juice my entire life and know that not all orange juices are created equally. Some are too sweet- packed with preservatives, artificial flavors, and added sugars. Indian River Select’s juices taste different because they taste BETTER and FRESHER. After just one sip, you can tell they are different from the rest. After all, their juices contain ONE ingredient: orange or grapefruit.

I have always been an advocate of supporting small, local businesses. Indian River Select is a company I can totally get behind, as it is one of the few premium juice companies that is 100% Floridian. This means EVERYTHING is done locally in Florida: from the growing to the picking to the packaging.  

Now, back to the flu. An 8-ounce glass of Indian River Select’s orange juice is an excellent source of Vitamin C, potassium, folate, and thiamin- all nutrients that may help support, boost, and maintain a healthy immune system. 

Other ways to combat the flu include moseying to the nearest pharmacy for a flu shot, staying hydrated, washing your hands properly, and supporting your immune system.

Finding Indian River Select juices is easy. They’re available at many accessible and national retail chains like Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Target, Publix, Whole Foods, and The Fresh Market.

Cheers to steering clear of the flu this flu season.

      Small world – we switched to Indian River when we moved to Florida years ago and have been loyal customers ever since. My stomach doesn’t handle vitamin C tablets or powdery vitamin mixes very well, so I drink Indian River by the gallon when I am not feeling well and it always seems to help.

      I haven’t used this brand before. I can’t wait to try it! I’m hopeful you can have a “rain check” on that New Orleans trip – with OJ on hand.

      This is the best tasting OJ. Luckily, our local grocery store in VA sells it. It’s ustally a little more expensive than the other brands but I think it’s totally worth it- you can taste the difference. Plus, I only buy Florida OJ so this checks all the boxes.

      Thanks for the tip. While I had read that a good dose of Vitamin C helps with colds and such, thanks for the reminder. Always in the market for a good juice, and this one looks delicious. Stopping by Publix on my way home tonight to pick up a bottle.
