The Health Benefits of Cold Pressed Orange Juice

The Health Benefits of Cold Pressed Orange Juice

Originally from China, orange is a popular and loved citrus fruit.  Oranges are popularly known for their high content in vitamin C. However, they contain a range of other plant compounds and antioxidants that can do wonders for your health. They reduce inflammation, boost immunity, and work against diseases. 

Let’s get into the detail of what nutrients oranges contain and how they can benefit our health.

  • Vitamin C:  Just a glass of cold-pressed orange juice can make up for more than your daily requirement of this vitamin! Vitamin C helps your body in a lot of ways.
    - It protects your cells from damage
    - It helps absorb iron to fight anemia
    - It boosts your immune system
    - It helps fight cancer-causing cells
    - Slows the advance of age-related macular degeneration, and...
    - Helps your body make collagen.
    Furthermore, if you’re feeling anxious, vitamin C can lower your blood pressure and levels of cortisol (the stress hormone).

  • Vitamin A: This vitamin is essential for eye health. Taking a sufficient quantity of this important vitamin helps give you greater protection against vision disorders such as cataracts.

  • Folate:  Also known as vitamin B9, it is vital for cell development. It participates in fetal growth and development to reduce the risks of congenital disabilities.  We also need folate while recovering from burns, and malabsorption. It also increases water losses (i.e., alcoholism or diarrhea). And because it is low in cholesterol and saturated fats, it helps in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

  • Magnesium: This mineral helps in the absorption of Vitamin D and calcium. These two vitamins are especially important for keeping our organs, muscles, and bones strong. It keeps your energy levels high. 

  • Fiber: While oranges are primarily made from carbs and water, they’re a great source of fiber. Fiber aids in digestive health, weight loss, and cholesterol. 

  • Potassium: A critical electrolyte, which helps maintain fluid balance in the body and lowers blood pressure.

  • Citric acid and citrates: Citric fruits like oranges can raise the levels of citrate in the urine, which lowers the risk of kidney stones.  In fact, they offer a natural alternative to potassium citrate supplements.

Oranges are easy to peel and eat. But you can easily reap the benefits of oranges from a glass of cold-pressed orange juice. They not only complement your breakfast, but they are perfect for when you need a quick pick-me-up or feel dehydrated. 

Make sure that you take in a glass of cold-pressed orange juice daily to consume the many health benefits and immunity-boosting properties of this colorful and delicious fruit.
