This raw vegan orange julius recipe is packed with beneficial antioxidants, raw, living enzymes and crucial phytonutrients. Orange julius drinks you buy from fast-food joints like Dairy Queen are loaded with synthetic chemicals, preservatives and colours that compromise your immune system and make you tired and moody. Plus, making your own orange julius is fun (and it tastes 10x better – I promise!).
Oranges are high in antioxidants and contain astringent properties that help penetrate your cells to remove toxins and get the lymphatic system pumping. Our lymphatic system plays a crucial role in the development of cellulite. A healthy lymphatic system is critical if you want to prevent cellulite formation and break the cellulite building cycle. And this recipe will help you do just that (on top of moderate exercise like rebounding, and drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day!).
Oranges are also help protect against cardiovascular disease by lowering blood pressure, prevent ulcers and kidney stones, improve immune function, act as a beneficial anti-inflammatory and are major cancer-fighters (studies have shown cancer-risk reductions in over 40-50% of individuals who consume citrus fruits!).
