The high level of beta-carotene acts as an antioxidant to cell damage done to the body through regular metabolism. It help slows down the aging of cells and that's where this Orange Sherbet Recipe can help.
Healthy Glowing Skin (from the inside) - Vitamin A and antioxidants protects the skin from sun damage. Deficiencies of vitamin A cause dryness to the skin, hair and nails. Vitamin A prevents premature wrinkling, acne, dry skin, pigmentation, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.
A medium-size carrot has 25 calories, 6 grams of carbs, and 2 grams of fiber. The veggie is an excellent source of vitamin A, providing more than 200% of your daily requirement in just one carrot. Carrots are loaded with beta-carotene, a natural chemical that the body changes into vitamin A. The deeper orange the carrot, the more beta-carotene you’re getting.
Oranges Alkalize The Body
Although oranges are acidic before you digest them, they contain many alkaline minerals that help to balance out the body after they are digested. In this respect, they are similar to lemons which are one of the most alkaline foods available.
Oranges are full of beta-carotene which is a powerful antioxidant protecting the cells from being damaged. Also protects the skin from free radicals and prevents the signs of aging.
Low glycemic index! Oranges, like all fruits have simple sugars in them, but the orange has a glycemic index of 40. Anything under 55 is considered low.
