Orange juice is a juice drink obtained by squeezing oranges as raw materials through a juicer. It is fresh and has high nutritional value.

In terms of efficacy, the flavonoids in citrus fruit juice, especially orange and orange juice, can effectively inhibit the proliferation of breast cancer, lung cancer and other cells. Regular consumption of orange juice can also effectively prevent certain chronic diseases, maintain myocardial function and lower blood pressure. Studies have shown that drinking 3 glasses of orange juice a day can increase the amount of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in the body, thereby reducing the possibility of heart disease. In addition, eating some oranges or drinking orange juice during taking the medicine can increase the absorption of the medicine by the body, thereby doubling the effect of the medicine.

Nutritionists will not advise citizens not to drink orange juice, because for those who are reluctant to eat fruit, orange juice can supplement vitamin C to a certain extent, but you must drink it as soon as possible, and when buying packaged orange juice, it is best to choose some Orange juice with added sugar.

If comparing oranges and orange juice, of course the former is the best choice. Because an orange contains about 68 mg of vitamin C, 26 micrograms of folic acid (a type of vitamin B group), 17 grams of fructose and 3.6 grams of fiber. Only one vitamin C is enough for a person's daily needs. Both vitamin C and folic acid exist in the pulp and are soluble in water. Basically, drinking orange juice can take it all. The biggest difference between eating oranges and drinking orange juice is fiber. Calculated by squeezing two oranges into a glass of orange juice, there is very little fiber left at the end, only 1 to 2 grams. Throwing away the orange pomace after juicing is a waste of money.

It should be noted that the nutrition of fresh orange juice will be lost for half an hour. A study pointed out that if fresh orange juice is placed for more than half an hour, the original nutrients will be wiped out; if this glass of "stale" orange juice is also added with sugar, the calories are higher than that of soda, so don't drink it. Nutrition experts pointed out that vitamin C is indeed put away for a short time. Although there is no data to calculate the speed of vitamin C loss in fresh juice, it is generally believed that half an hour is the limit. Because it is indeed a very unstable nutrient - most other nutrients are lost during heating, and vitamin C only needs to be exposed to air to be lost and destroyed.
