Renowned for their concentration of Vitamin C, juicy and sweet oranges contain healing properties that have been associated with a wide variety of phytonutrient compounds. Citrus appears to offer the most significant protection against esophageal, orophayngeal/laryngeal (mouth, larynx and pharynx), and stomach cancers. Be sure to peel before extracting in your NutriBullet.

Selection Process

Choose fully ripened oranges for the most potent antioxidant power. Buy organic oranges whenever possible and avoid those with soft spots or mold. In general, smaller oranges with thinner skins will be the juiciest. Choose oranges with smooth skin that seem heavy for their size.
