Plum and Orange Juice



Plums are also helpful in bone metabolism and protect you from bone diseases caused due to aging. This juice will help regulate the digestive system, helps against constipation and good blood pressure. Oranges are the great source of Vitamin C and hence helps in immunity for the growing kids. This juice is also ideal for weight loss thanks to the high amount of vitamin C. Orange and plums are packed with vitamin C, beta-carotene, copper, manganese and potassium .Plums are good sources of chromogenic acid and neochlorogenic acid, compounds in the phenols family which have been well-documented to possess strong antioxidant and anticancer effects.Thus this drink was made. Loved the color and taste of it...
