* Amazing Benefits Of Oranges!

Jeff Eats just finished reading “Amazing Benefits Of Oranges” on and I thought I’d pass it onto you guys! Just between us, the article doesn’t break any new ground- but every so often it doesn’t hurt to refresh what one already knows!

Despite all the really good stuff that Jeff Eats eats like pizza, bbq pork ribs, fatty corned beef on rye, French fries, onion rings etc.- I do make it my business to drink plenty of fresh squeezed juices and eat all kinds of nuts/fruits/vegetables. So far so good- in the health department!

Anyway, on this orange juice thing, just make sure that you drink fresh squeezed stuff and not pastureized or concentrated crap!

Let’s consider today’s tale- “A Public Service Announcement.”

Orange Juice Provides

1. Drinking a glass of orange juice a day can keep the doctor away. Orange juice is known to contain a high percentage of Vitamin C, which is helpful in boosting the immune system. So, you will be less likely to catch various illnesses, such as colds or the flu.

2. Various medical studies show that orange juice may help lower both cholesterol levels and blood pressure levels, which are two very common problems among middle aged men and women.

3. Orange juice is thought to be very high in antioxidants. What this means is that this yummy juice may help prevent various forms of cancer, including breast cancer and prostate cancer.

4. Fairly large amounts of potassium, which is an essential nutrient for the body, can be found in orange juice.

5. Studies have shown that orange juice can help reduce the risk of heart disease, which is because it can help improve circulation.

6. Orange juice contains Folate, which plays a major role in the reproduction of new cells and can help with the healing process.

7. Research has shown that orange juice has anti-inflammatory properties. If you experience a lot of arthritis-related pain, orange juice may really help relieve it.

8. Due to the antioxidants found in orange juice, many people believe that drinking it on a regular basis may help aid in weight loss. Of course, with all of the other health benefits that orange juice has to offer, it is probably a good note to not drink the juice simply due to weight loss reasons, as it may or may not be effective.

You Need to Know:

Now you know about the benefits but what type of juice is Good? Lets learn more about commenrcial orange juice and concentrate form

1. Frozen concentrated Orange Juice

In this type of juice, the squeezed juice is pasteurized and then heated to evaporate all the water. Then, this concentrated juice is mixed with 60% sugar by weight and stored in freezer. Therefore, it is best to avoid “Juice from Concentrate” as it has high level of sugar and very less nutritional value because most of the vitamins is lost during evaporation process.

2. Labeled “Not from Concentrate”

These juice are also same as concentrated juice only but with less flavor and sugar.

3. Fresh Squeezed Juice

This type is juice is pure and comes in unpasteurized form. They have a typical self life of 12 days. So, it is advisable to drink squeezed juice that is free from extra sugars and flavorings.
Drink Orange Juice in Moderation

Always remember that you do not need to drink a whole lot of orange juice in order to get these healthy benefits. In fact, since orange juice is fairly high in calories, avoid drinking too much of the stuff. Be sure to check the sugar content on the label when choosing orange juice if you really want to get most benefits from your orange juice and, ultimately, prevent weight gain (since high sugar levels can cause it).

Orange Juice With Pulp

It is often said that orange juice containing pulp tends to even healthier for the body, but it is an issue that is often debated. If you have a stomach condition, remember that orange juice is very acidic and for that reason, it may cause you to feel an upset stomach. Due to its acidity, orange juice can also cause tooth damage if you do not care for your teeth properly after drinking it.

    I’m with you.
    Tangerine juice, orange juice, watermelon juice, pineapple juice. Just make sure everything is fresh squeezed.

  2. The key to orange juice is that it has to be fresh squeezed. Never ever pasteurized or from concentrate.
    Drink between 8 and 16 ounces a day and you’ll be set.
    Being doing this for over 65 years.
    So far so good.

    Don’t forget FRESH ONLY! Tropicana, Simply Orange, etc. a waste of time. FRESH ONLY!

    * Drink Tangerine Juice.
    This article originally appeared on October 13, 2014. Do Jeff Eats a big favor and give-it-a-read! Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, no-one really knows for sure how the future is gonna break for them, one way or the other! That said, this Tangerine “stuff” makes a whole lot of sense to me!

    * Drink Tangerine Juice.

    One of Jeff Eats’ favorite “drinks” is fresh squeezed tangerine juice.

    Take a look at the below-article -Health Benefits of Tangerine Juice ( already knew the stuff was really good for me, but didn’t know that it was REALLY THAT GOOD for me!

    Now, with tangerine season (November-April) nearing…Jeff Eats was thinking- just maybe, it wouldn’t hurt for you guys to plan on drinking an 8oz glass a day, could it? Just so we are straight, I got a “D” in junior high school biology- so if you go into diabetic shock or some other “shock” drinking this stuff- don’t-be suing Jeff Eats based on the claim that I’m some kind of a science/health expert!

    By the way, Jeff Eats doesn’t “do” PASTEURIZED fresh squeezed tangerine juice…there are plenty of south Florida markets that have unpasteurized fresh squeezed tangerine juice. The reasons- 1. unpasteurized juice tastes better than the tinkered stuff- does, 2. pasteurizing cooks many of the nutrients out of the juice. Just so you know, don’t waste your time “looking” in Publix- EVERY juice it stocks is pasteurized…I usually catch mine at The Boys Farmers Market (Delray Beach) or Whole Foods Market.

    One final thought, if you haven’t got time to go “chasing” around looking for unpasteurized fresh squeezed tangerine juice–you can always just buy some tangerines at your local supermarket and do whatever you want with them…
    Health Benefits of Tangerine Juice.

    Aside from being sweet and flavorful, tangerine juice has many benefits for your health. In terms of nutritional value and disease-fighting properties, tangerine juice has several advantages over orange juice. From protecting you from diseases and cancer to keeping you fuller longer, this juice has a health benefit for nearly everyone.

    Nutritional Value – The Source Of The Health Benefits Of Tangerine Juice
    Tangerine juice has all of the tangy flavor of orange juice but with added nutrition. This juice is an excellent source of many antioxidants, such as hesperetin, xanthins, lutein, beta-carotene, and narigenin. Anti-oxidants eliminate free radicals that can cause cancer, as well as fight aging. The anti-oxidant beta cryptoxanthin may reduce inflammation from arthritis. Lutein protects the eyes and helps you keep your eyesight sharp. The flavenoid tangeretin is a powerful agent that has been shown in studies to prevent skin cancer and helps stop the spread of breast-cancer cells. The flavonoids tangeretin and nobiletin have blood thinning and anti-inflammatory properties, which may reduce your risk of heart attacks.

    Additionally, tangerine juice is chock-full of vitamin C, which boosts your immunity. Consuming adequate amounts of vitamin C helps your body fight infections from the common cold to the flu. In addition to helping increase your immune function, vitamin C helps your body absorb iron, and helps boost wound healing.

    Tangerine juice contains folic acid and potassium, and it is also an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which promotes regularity. Being regular has been proven to reduce your risk for developing some forms of cancer, such as colon cancer. The fiber also helps prevent your body from absorbing cholesterol. Fiber whisks some of the cholesterol content from your food out of your system, which can lower your blood levels of LDL, or “bad” cholesterol.

    One serving of tangerine juice provides 20-percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A. This is 10-times as much vitamin A as orange juice. Vitamin A is instrumental in protecting your eyesight, promoting immune function and bone and tissue health. The vitamin A in tangerine juice may also stimulate cell growth and cell division.

    Antiseptic Properties
    Tangerines have natural germ-fighting properties. Tangerine juice may help your body defend itself against an infection from the staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Staphylococcus aureus is highly contagious and causes painful lesions and boils on the skin, particularly on the face or in other tender areas such as the groin or the armpits.

    In addition to fighting harmful bacteria, the pectin in tangerine juice has been proven to help increase the number of beneficial bacteria in your intestines. These bacteria improve digestion and increases your body’s ability to defend against harmful bacteria which can cause inflammation and intestinal disorders. When harmful bacteria enter the gut, beneficial bacteria help usher the bad bacteria out of your system before they can cause an infection.

    Diet Support
    Tangerine juice is an excellent way to start your day if you are dieting. The fiber and carbohydrates in the juice help keep you feeling full, which will prevent over-indulgence later on. Additionally, the sweet finish of the tangerine flavor can help prevent the cravings for sugar that can derail a diet.

    Starting your day with tangerine juice is a tasty and healthy way to boost your immunity, bolster your digestive and tissue health and protect your body against the ravages of cancer. Tangerine juice is powerful enough to do all of those things, yet it is so tangy-sweet and flavorful that you will forget all about its many health benefits and simply enjoy the flavor.

  4. Jeff,
    I’m on the same page as you.
    Drinking fresh fruit juices, orange, watermelon, tangerine, honeydew really does work magic for the human body. I’m not into all of this tricky juicing stuff, but I m a big believer in just drinking fresh fruit juices. now I know that genes play a huge role in longevity and health but I’m 87 and have been drinking juices seemingly forever and let’s just say I’m in really good health.
