Keep Up with Smart C+

A day after I was discharged from the hospital due to dengue fever, I was surprised to receive a box of juice labeled as "The Smart Fruit Box." From the box's drawing itself, I already got an idea that it contains three flavors inside. Small as it is, I wonder why it says "this box contains 46 citrus fruits" when I guess it can only contain as much.

Upon opening, I saw six bottles of Smart C+ containing two variants each of Oishi's healthy drink. The three flavors are called Lemon Squeeze (yellow), Orange Crush (orange), and Pomelo Grapefruit (pink).

Each bottle contains 500mg of Vitamin C and is equivalent to a certain number of citrus fruits (Lemon Squeeze is to 11 medium-size whole fresh lemons, Orange Crush is to 8 whole fresh Valencia Oranges, and Pomelo Grapefruit is to 4 large-size whole fresh Grapefruit) – now I understand why it says 46. In addition, the drink has no preservatives added, no artificial color and sweeteners, and does not contain high fructose corn syrup.

I am so glad that the juice came in at the right time after my sickness. Because of dengue fever, I believe my vitamin C level lowered down and as a result gave my body a hard time to create collagen. What is collagen, you may ask. Simply put, it is present in our bodies and acts as the glue that holds the body together. It connects our tissues, supporting the skin, bones, tendons, cartilage, and muscles.

Smart C+ helps the body by providing vitamin C that enables the production and maintenance of collagen to help our cells recover from daily wear and tear. By coming up with this drink, we see Oishi’s vision of providing an innovative line of high quality, imaginative and affordable food and beverage products that excite and inspire.

Tasting Smart C+
Without any bias, I can say that all three flavors were indeed thirst quenching and refreshing. Unlike other juices, Smart C+ tasted very light and without any tingling effect. In addition, the juice did not leave me feeling thirsty after I finished the bottle. Each sip gave an exciting feeling that makes me want to drink more and more.
