Health Benefits of Oranges
Freshly squeezed orange juice is a predigested food. This allows for immediate absorption of all it’s abundant healing properties.
Oranges destroy free radicals that cause signs of skin ageing, scouring the intestine and flushing toxins from the body.
Oranges have a wide variety of phyto-nutrient compounds. They have all been associated with the healing properties of oranges. These plant-based nutrients include anthocyanins, citrus flavanones, Vitamin C and a various polyphenols.
In oranges, researchers often single out the herperidin molecule in phyto-nutrient research. Herperidin is arguably, the most significant flavanone in oranges and it helps to lower high blood pressure and cholesterol.
Herperidin isn’t found in the orange flesh section, but instead in the inner white pulp of the orange. Make sure you leave as much white pith on when juicing.
Some of the benefits of juicing oranges include:
- combats cancer
- protects your heart
- strengthens respiratory system
- supports immune system
Whole food vitamin C, found in oranges, stimulates your body’s immune system into action so you can say goodbye to your cold. Cancer might be called “the big C,” but that title rightfully belongs to vitamin C in whole foods. Drinking fresh made, cold pressed orange juice may reduce the length of time you are sick and how seriously it develops.
Orange Juice Recipe
- 1/2 rock melon
- 4 oranges
- 2 pears
- 1/2 lime
Juicing Time: 2 mins
Juice Qty: 1 litre
I like to start making this juice with the rock melon to extract the most flavour. Place pieces in the chute one at a time.
Next juice the pears whole one at a time. If they are really soft they will struggle to go through the press so juice them first followed by the rock melon.
Next juice the orange whole. They will also help push the pear through.
Finish the juice with the halve a lime.
