I’m sure your mother also told you: “drink the orange juice before the vitamins run out” and, although it was a “very motherly” resource for us to drink the juice, she was right. Orange is considered one of the healthiest citrus fruits due to its high concentration of Vitamin C.
It is true that this vitamin does not cure colds or flu, but it is effective in strengthening the immune system and, therefore, orange juice is a good solution to strengthen the defences of our organism.
What are the properties of orange juice?
As we told you before, orange juice provides our body with a large amount of Vitamin C. This vitamin is indispensable for the organism as it prevents the development of symptoms related to the flu and colds.
You’re wondering why this vitamin is so important. The answer is because it is present in the body’s white blood cells and they are responsible for the health of the body. The basis of these globules contains Vitamin C, which is responsible for strengthening the body against the flu, so the more Vitamin C, the better.
But natural orange juice not only provides the body with vitamin C, it also provides antioxidant substances that, together with vitamin C, strengthen the immune system as they have analgesic and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
And finally, another great advantage is that it generates a coating on the walls of the stomach that makes it reinforce possible food aggressions or diseases.
The fresh orange juice should be present in your day to day as it ensures the protection of your immune system and helps prevent the emergence of diseases such as the flu. Here’s one of our favourite recipes for keeping the flu at bay.
Boost your immune system with orange juice
It comes the time when our immune system lowers its guard against the cold and the first colds and flu arrive, but luckily, it’s orange time and having them at home is very easy (although the ideal is to have them throughout the year and make you a juice in the morning or any time of day).
If you have a juicer at home or if you have a natural juice vending machine in your office, we explain this recipe that will strengthen your immune system. Take note:
- 2 oranges
- 2 tablespoons of wheat germ
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 tablespoon of echinacea
- Cut the oranges in half.
- Take your juicer to get the juice out of your oranges or use the Zummo juicer in your office.
- Pour the juice into a glass, add the wheat germ and a splash of honey.
- Then, chop the echinacea and add it to the glass.
- When everything is well mixed, it is ready to drink.
- You can prepare this juice at home or you can also take advantage of natural juice vending machines to restore strength and strengthen your immune system at any time of day. However, it is not recommended to drink more than 2 or 3 glasses a day.
