5 reasons a morning glass of OJ is a major do

 
Your morning routine just wouldn’t be the same without a cool glass of orange juice. It’s the perfect combo of bright, tangy, sweet goodness to start off your day. But the beloved OJ is doing more for your bod than you’d even know! Here are some real benefits of this kick-butt beverage. Drink up!

 

It’s great for your guts

Good old H20 is always the beverage of choice, but a study comparing water with OJ revealed something pretty juicy! After an unhealthy meal, it was shown that water increases your body’s stress and causes inflammation, while orange juice doesn’t. What’s the message? This sweet stuff could be protecting your insides from major issues, like heart problems.

 

It prevents diseases

Besides stopping bad stuff like inflammation, your morning juice is preventing heart diseases in other awesome ways. OJ contains hesperidin, an antioxidant that helps blood vessels work better. Beyond the heart, OJ’s vitamin C keeps you from getting cataracts, and its citrus is shown to stop kidney stones from forming.

 

It gives you what you need

There are tons of super important things your body needs each day, and OJ can really give ya a kick-start on getting them. It’s got a whopping 60 percent of your daily recommended vitamin C and almost 25 percent of the fruit and veggie servings you need. And the more pulp your juice packs, the more fiber your bod gets.

 

It betters your bod

Whether you’re working towards a better bod or just trying to avoid junk, this juice is the way to go. OJ is pretty much free from yucky stuff like fat, cholesterol, saturated fat, and sodium. Plus, it’s got only 110 calories in a glass.

 

It’s delicious!

Obvious, but important! Orange juice is super yummy and is a perf pair with whatever nutritious breakfast you’re chowin’ down. More and more, scientists are proving the benefits for your brain of foods that are both healthy and yummy. So go ahead- savor each sip.
