Orange and basil come together to create a revitalizing drink which is perfect to beat heat. If you are in raining/winter season, this is the perfect juice for you but don't worry a few drops of ice cubes would do if the wheather is hot/summer.
Orange originated in a region encompassing Southern China, Northeast India, and Myanmar and the earliest mention of the sweet orange was in Chinese literature in 314 BC. Orange trees are widely grown in tropical and subtropical climates for their sweet fruit. The fruit of the orange tree can be eaten fresh, or processed for its juice or fragrant peel. Oranges are a good source of fiber and potassium, both of which can support heart health.
Oranges contain Vitamin C. Consuming enough vitamin C can help a person maintain skin health and appearance. Vitamin C contributes to collagen production. Collagen supports the skin, promotes wound healing, and improves skin strength. Oranges also contain choline and zeaxanthin. Choline is an important nutrient in oranges that helps with sleep, muscle movement, learning, and memory. Choline also aids the transmission of nerve impulses, assists in the absorption of fat, and reduces chronic inflammation.
Basil is a herb in the mint family. It adds flavor to meals, and its nutrients may provide health benefits. Basil may provide health benefits in the diet, as herbal medicine, and as an essential oil. Traditional uses include the treatment of snakebites, colds, and inflammation within nasal passages. Basil provides some macronutrients, such as calcium and vitamin K, as well as a range of antioxidants.
Sweet basil, for example, has a high concentration of the chemical agent eugenol. This gives it a clove like scent. Lime and lemon basils have high concentrations of limonene, which give them a citrusy scent. Both eugenol and limonene have antioxidant properties. Some practitioners of traditional medicine commonly recommend basil to help manage blood sugar levels.
