Juice Paradise

This is one of my favorite times of the year because we are able to enjoy the different varieties of citrus that are in season. We are blessed in Hervey Bay to have weekly markets that provide the community with an abundance of fresh local produce. Check out where you live and see what is available in your area. 

Adding citrus fruit and their juices to your diet can provide you with many health benefits. 

Orange And Tangelo Juice

Plan daily to make yourself a citrus juice and provide your body with enough vitamin C to help fight infection and maintain a healthy immune system. Oranges have the highest amount of vitamin C.

These colorful juices are loaded with potassium to help reduce high blood pressure and stroke.

Blood Orange Juice

Adding citrus fruit to your diet is one way to increase your dietary fiber. Fiber helps keep the digestive system regular, it provides a sense of fullness without adding calories.

Mandarin And Grapefruit Juice
Blood Orange Juice
Pineapple Juice

Red varieties of grapefruits are especially rich in a powerful flavonoid antioxidant, lycopene. Studies have shown that lycopene protects skin damage from UV rays, and offers protection against prostate cancer.

Limes are low in calories, a good source of fiber, and high in vitamin C. They also contain phytochemicals, which may help protect against cancer and other diseases.

Enjoy your juice today and have better health tomorrow
