Orange juice is the most popular juice not only in India but all over the world. It is a powerhouse filled with high nutrition like vitamin C, potassium, folate, calcium and more. 240 ml of orange juice can contain up to 67% of our daily intake of vitamin C, 15% of folate and 2 grams of protein. Here are 5 benefits of Orange Juice - 

Vitamin C 

Vitamin C is an immunity-boosting vitamin that can help the body fight viruses and bacterias. It contains free radicals that help fight early ageing. Vitamin C also helps in the absorption of essential nutrients like calcium and iron.

Healthy Bones

Orange juice contains a decent amount of calcium. Calcium promotes healthy bones. Oranges also have carotenoids which protect bones from free radicals. Along with bones, teeth and gum health also strengthens. 

Controls Cholesterol

Daily consumption of orange juice is recommended by doctors to patients suffering from cholesterol. Oranges have polymethoxylated flavones which can reduce the level of cholesterol in one’s body. Exercise along with orange juice can help people with cholesterol. 

Good for diabetes

Orange juice is especially recommended to patients suffering from type 2 diabetes. Diabetic patients are at the risk of developing eye problems, but orange juice with vitamin C can benefit them to lower their risk of eye damage.  

Great for Detox

Orange juice can be consumed if one is looking for a detox formula. It can take away the toxins from the body. This can help many to control inflammation and achieve beautiful skin. Being rich in citric acid orange juice can help prevent the risk of developing kidney stones.

One of the downsides of consuming juice is that the fibre gets left behind. The drink has high amounts of sugar and calories. It can also lead to weight gain. Regular consumption of any fruit juice can add to the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
