<b>ORANGE JUICE IS AN EFFECTIVE ANTI-AGING, FAT-BURNER DRINK<b>
Orange juice is a morning favorite. An excellent source of vitamin C, orange juice also is a good source of potassium.
Compared to other juices, orange juice is higher in protein, vitamin A, B-vitamins, vitamin C (it contains more than 10 times as much vitamin C as apple juice), calcium, iron and potassium, making it a heavyweight among fruit juices.
Orange juice contains also flavonoids, important for their strong antioxidant activity. A study from the US (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, April 2010), says that flavonoids from orange juice may neutralize the detrimental effects of consuming a high-fat, high-carbohydrate meal.
"Our data show, for the first time to our knowledge, that drinking orange juice with a meal high in fat and carbohydrates prevented the marked increases in reactive oxygen species and other inflammatory agents," says Husam Ghanim, PhD, first author on the study.
Free radicals, or reactive oxygen species, are known to induce inflammation in blood vessel linings and contribute to the risk of heart attack and stroke. Study researchers say the potent preventative effect of orange juice likely is linked to its heavy load of the flavonoids naringenin and hesperidin, which are major antioxidants.
A new excellent reason to keep drinking our healthy morning glass of orange juice!
1. Drinking an 8-ounce glass counts as one of your five necessary fruit and vegetable servings for the day.
2. Freshly squeezed juice contains more vitamin C than “made from concentrate” canned or frozen juices.
3. The vitamin C content of canned juices may deteriorate upon exposure to air, so be sure to refrigerate and tightly seal opened containers.
