Health Benefits of Drinking Orange Juice
Research has found that drinking orange juice in moderation can have many potential health benefits:
Immune System Support
Orange juice is an excellent source of Vitamin C — one cup contains twice the daily recommended value. Vitamin C supports your immune system and may be effective in fighting against the common cold.
Birth Defect Risk Reduction
The folate in orange juice supports healthy fetal development. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) suggests that pregnant women take in at least 400 mcg of folate or folic acid each day to prevent neural tube defects.
Reduced Risk of Kidney Stones
Orange juice contains a high level of potassium citrate. This nutrient binds to the calcium in urine, creating an environment where kidney stones are less likely to develop.
Dr. Streiff, University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, in his research, has concluded that orange juice is a rich dietary source of folate. Folate is a member of the B complex, technically it is vitamin B9. This important vitamin is essential for the creation of DNA and the growth of new cells which is also very important during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Folate plays a role in building new red blood cells that supply oxygen to various parts of the body and can help prevent anemia. This means that the organ systems are well-oxygenated and are working at full capacity. Further, this supports the overall metabolism of the body and the functioning of all the systems, making them more efficient.
Citrus fruits are commonly considered anti-agents, and orange juice is no exception. High sugar and high-fat meals can lead to inflammation of various body parts, and this, in turn, can lead to the development of increased insulin resistance. This is one of the major underlying causes of type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis.
A 2010 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that orange juice can inhibit this insulin resistance by reducing inflammation, thereby protecting the heart and providing overall cardiovascular protection.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Dr. Christine Morand, a member of the Scientific Council of the Food Research Department at INRA, led research suggesting that hesperidin, in orange juice, acts as an antioxidant and no only protects the body against diseases and cancer, but also impacts the activity and functioning of blood vessels.
This can have a major impact on blood pressure as a whole, and research has connected this powerful antioxidant to a reduction in overall blood pressure and a decreased chance of cardiovascular disease.
Balances Cholesterol Level
High LDL “bad” and low HDL “good”is one of the dangerous risk factors that can lead to cardiovascular disease, so achieving a healthy balance of cholesterol levels in your body can help reduce the risk.
Orange juice has been shown to reduce “bad” cholesterol while increasing the amount of “good” cholesterol in the body. This property means that the chances of, heart attack, and stroke are reduced.
