Freshly Squeezed orange juice

"A glass of juice helps keep the cold away', that was the long time phrase i remembered before heading to the market to get myself some fresh oranges. I'd been having this horrible catarrh which resulted in an even more horrible headache all day. I would have popped some catarrh pills but i really can't stand the site and taste of drugs. Even the slimy drool wouldn't make me slip some pills for immediate relief. The glass of juice did the magic by stopping the catarrh....Thank goodness. This is because, Oranges are rich in Vitamins C,  A & B-complex vitamins( pyridoxine, thiamin, and folates), Magnesium, Calcium, Antioxidants, Dietary fiber, Flavonoids (Hesperetin, naringin, and naringenin), Potassium etc. Check out some of the health benefits below.

    1. No you don't have to peel the skin. You just have to wash and slice the orange open then place the inner part of the orange on the juicer and turn on.
