The Amazing Health Benefits Of Orange Juice

In The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, we have a large abundance of oranges available to us.

And, what do we do with all of those oranges?

We make lots of orange juice, of course.

Orange juice happens to be one of the popular juices on Planet Earth.

And, I would safely speculate, that almost everyone knows the delicious flavour of freshly squeezed orange juice.

Besides its great taste, orange juice has lots of nutritional value; making it quite a healthy indulgence.

Orange Juice Is A Great Source Of Vitamin C

The average child is, fully aware of the fact that orange juice is loaded with vitamin C.

And, this is what vitamin C does for us:

• It helps heal wounds.

• It helps in the lowering of our bad cholesterol.

• It lowers the risk for heart disease and strokes.

• It helps to regulate the sugar levels of those who are afflicted with diabetes.

• It lowers one's risk of getting cataracts.

• It boosts our immune system.

• It helps the body to make collagen.

• It help to regulate our blood pressure.

Orange Juice Is A Rich Source Of Potassium

Potassium is one of those essential minerals that is good for maintaining good health; here are some of its positive effects on the human body:

• Potassium actually lowers our blood pressure.

• The consumption of potassium will reduce our risk of developing kidney stones.

• Potassium prevents leg cramps and muscle spasms from taking place.

• Potassium helps in the prevention of the loss of essential minerals; such as, phosphorus and calcium.

• Since potassium is an electrolyte, it helps the cells of the body to maintain a natural balance of fluids.

• Potassium helps to break down the carbohydrates that we eat.

Orange Juice Contains Folic Acid

Folic acid (also known as vitamin B9) plays an important role in keeping us healthy; this is what it does:

• Folic acid, is needed to make RNA and DNA; which are the building blocks of cells.

• It helps to prevent anaemia.

• It helps in the prevention of certain birth defects.

• It also lowers our blood pressure.

• It prevents Alzheimer's disease.

• It helps in the prevention of type two diabetes.

• It helps to prevent heart disease.

• It helps to combat depression.

Orange Juice Contains Vitamin A

Vitamin A is one of those essential vitamins that we cannot do without and this is what it does for us:

• It improves our vision.

• It strengthens our immune system.

• It makes our skin smooth, soft and supple.

• It lowers our risk of getting urinary stones.

• It strengthens our bones and teeth.

• It helps in the prevention of acne.

• It helps prevent muscular dystrophy.

• It also slows down the aging process.

• It helps to protect us from certain cancers.

Orange Juice Contains A Small Percentage Of Calcium

Everyone knows that calcium is one of the very important minerals that the body needs; this is what it does for us:

• It strengthens our bones.

• It helps to prevent obesity.

• It helps to prevent colon cancer.

• It protects our cardiac muscles.

• It keeps our teeth and gums healthy.

• It helps our body to maintain a healthy alkaline pH level.

• It helps to prevent kidney stones.

• It helps to prevent premenstrual depression.

The Conclusion

Orange juice, without a doubt, is very good for us to consume.

The nice part being: it is a very tasty beverage.

So, instead of grabbing a soda, I recommend that you go for a bottle of cold, refreshing orange juice.

Giving Up Addictions

Photo credit: psyberartist via photopin cc
I love it when people give testimonies pertaining to giving up their addictions.

I knew people who gave up illegal drugs and alcohol; they are now clean and sober.

It is a smart and very honourable thing when a person comes to the decision that they are tired of abusing substances; whether they are prescribed or illegal.

Many of us are addicted to something; it may not be illegal drugs, but they can do as much damage; caffeine happens to be on of them.

Recently, my friend, Ray gave up coffee (I hope that he continues to be caffeine-free and that he doesn't relapse).

Caffeine is one of the hardest substances to sever ties with, because it is in coffee, tea, some sodas, energy drinks, chocolate and in some deserts (So, in order to break the habit of caffeine intake, one needs to educate themselves about the various foods and beverages that contain caffeine).

Anyway, we all have a basic idea of the things that we should not be putting into our body, because those things can administer harm to us in the long run.

I think that things such as white sugar, white rice and white flour should be made illegal, because they spike our blood-sugar levels and that people can become addicted to those substances.

On a positive note, it is possible for anyone to overcome any type of addiction known to mankind; it may take a high level of self-determination combined with professional help and spiritual intervention.

Caffeine is indeed a drug; which is why coffee helps us to be alert, or gives us that feeling of euphoria.

Caffeine, like any drug can be misused and it has its side effects too.

Here is a video that provides insight as to what happens when we consume coffee.
