Orange Juice for Healthier Days

By Donna Stark

Whether it's fresh-squeezed, frozen, or from a carton, orange juice sure is a sunny way to begin your day, but the tangy taste isn't the only thing you will be getting out of this breakfast beverage! The benefits that come from all-natural orange juice are plenty and if there is ever a time to start including it with your morning meal, that time is now! Take a look at how a daily glass of orange juice will impact your days. 

Boosts Your Immunity

Orange juice is loaded with antioxidants, such as flavonoids and carotenoids. It is also packed with high amounts of Vitamin C, and we all know that a great way to fight off colds and other infections like the flu, is with a powerful dose of that! In fact, a single orange can often contain more Vitamin C than the daily recommended amount! Vitamin C helps to create a stronger immune system by protecting the immune cells and promoting their growth. 

Keeps Your Heart Healthy 

Oranges are truly the jack of all fruits! They contain powerful antibodies, loads of vitamins, and high amounts of potassium and pectin, which can help lower cholesterol and control blood pressure levels. Citrus fruits are a quick and tasty way to get your heart-healthy vitamins and minerals in for the day. 

Reduces Kidney Stones

A superhero in all of its forms, oranges have the power to help reduce and slow the formation of kidney stones. Oranges, and other forms of citrus, have a large concentration of citrate, a citric acid. This acid can help break down calcium formations and slow the production of kidney stones. 

Improves Bone Health

Growing up, our parents, teachers, and doctors said that drinking milk was the only way to grow big and strong bones. Well, that and eating all of your broccoli, of course. But they often missed a different, significant source of calcium ... oranges! The calcium content in oranges is off the charts and can help promote good bone health and relieve many aches and pains! 

A Glass of Orange Juice a Day

It's surprising that the benefits of orange juice aren't entirely well-known and have often been overlooked, but fortunately, word is getting out. Oranges can play a very important role in your body's health and wellness, so go ahead and bring a healthy dose of sunshine into your days. It's the tastiest way to keep the doctors away!
