Fresh OJ Anyone?

Orange is the topic for Saturday’s Food For Thought.

When I was living in Greece I tried fresh orange juice over there and fell in love. To this day, I will never drink orange juice from the store unless it is freshly squeezed orange juice. I can definitely taste the difference from the juice container vs freshly squeezed.

Saturday’s Food For Thought- Oranges

Benefits of oranges:

  • Drinking at least two glasses of orange juice a day increases your vitamin c. 
  • Protects against inflammation. 
  • Orange juice helps improve the blood pressure. Orange juice contains hesperidin, a healthy water soluble plant pigment. Hesperidin helps improve the small blood vessels.
  • Oranges decrease the bad cholesterol levels.
