HEALTH BENEFITS OF ORANGE JUICE

By Unknown - June 08, 2017


Orange juice, as you know is the juice squeezed from orange, which to me is the most popular citrus fruit around the world. It is widely considered one of the healthiest beverages in the world because of its wide range of health benefits which include:

Diabetes.
Orange juice is recommended for Type II Diabetes patients because it has little sugar and has diuretic properties, which can help regulate excess sugar in your body. Also, the content of vitamin C helps those patients minimize the consequences that can bring this disease, which can be infections, the difficult to form scars, or visual problems.

Anti-aging.
Due to the antioxidant properties that orange has, it is a very effective treatment against the effects of free radicals. Orange juice when drank often and regularly can help reverse the effects of the passing of years that affect the body.

   Cancer Prevention: 
As mentioned, vitamin C works as an antioxidant, and one of the most important functions of antioxidants is to prevent cancer. Antioxidants keep the DNA of healthy cells from mutating into cancerous cells, so antioxidants like vitamin C are the first line of defense for cancer and other serious diseases.
Do You know?

Urinary System.
Orange juice has great alkalizing properties which is very favorable for helping clean your blood because it dissolves acids and prevent those that stay in your kidneys and form kidney stones.

Immune System: 
Oranges and orange juice have long been known as a powerhouse of healing properties, and one of the richest sources of vitamin-C that you can add to a diet. A single service of orange juice has more than 200% of the vitamin C requirement of the body. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, functions as a primary antioxidant in the body, and it destroys or neutralizes free radicals before they can do damage to the body’s systems. Our bodies need vitamin C to stimulate other aspects of our immune system as well. Furthermore, ascorbic acid is one of the fundamental components of collagen, which is necessary to repair cells and for the growth of new tissues in the body.

Cholesterol Balance: 
High cholesterol is one of the most dangerous causes of cardiovascular disease, so any way to reduce the cholesterol in your body is worth trying. Orange juice has been shown to reduce the presence and effects of “bad” cholesterol, why increasing the amount of “good” cholesterol in the body. 

Note:
Too much of a good thing can be dangerous. Orange juice, like the juice of most citrus fruits, is quite acidic, so too much acidic liquid in the body can upset the stomach. Finally, if you want the complete benefit of oranges, avoid orange juice and eat the orange itself. That is the only way to get a good amount of fiber to boost your digestion; orange juice has almost no fiber.
