Sugar and Fruit Juices, 2

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the maximum amount of added sugars you should eat in a day are:

·       Men:   37.5 grams or 9 teaspoons
·       Women: 25 grams or 6 teaspoons

An average naval orange contains nearly 12 grams of sugar, but it also contains fiber that helps the body process the high fructose content and may even block some of the sugar from being absorbed. Even too much natural fruit can trigger a blood sugar high, that typically is followed by a blood sugar low. Such fluctuations are not good for optimum brain function.
