The winter is coming. It brings cold short days, and it’s important to take special care of ourselves during this period since it is flue season. That’s why we bring you orange smoothie this week, to offer you not only delicious but vitamin packed drink that will improve your immune system.
What you need:
ONE APPLE – Best testament to all the health benefits that apples provide is that old English saying: An apple a day keeps doctor away. It will help you fight viruses and all sorts of free radicals. Vitamin C will boosts your immunity, while pectin helps fight and prevent cardiovascular diseases. An apple has a low calorie value but is filled with fibres, keeping you full and making a great snack between the meals.
ONE ORANGE – You can hardly avoid oranges during winter. And why would you when only one orange contains almost 100% of recommended daily dose of vitamin C. It is also rich in vitamins A and B, amino acids, beta carotene, zink, phosphorus and natrium. It is considered one of the healthier fruits for its combination of antioxidants and flavonoids.
TWO CARROTS – Delicious and healthy, carrots should find their place on your plate. Research has shown that carrots act like some sort of cleaners, freeing our bodies from bad substances that are consequences of bad eating habits and all sorts of radiation. It is also one of natural medicines that prevents and help fight various diseases. Its colour shows us that carrots are filled with beta carotene that strengthens immunity and protects the body from infections and cancer.
