Health Benefits

Fresh orange is a very good source of vitamin C (energy booster, strengthens teeth and bones), dietaryfiber (about 3g); very low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. It is also a good source of vitamin B1(anti-stress and anti-beriberi), B12 or folic acid for cell repair and maintenance; and potassium to normalize blood pressure, avoid stroke, increase metabolism, among others.

Banana is a super energy booster food because of its high carbohydrate content. It is rich in fiber thathelps regulate bowel movements. Its high in potassium greatly helps lower high blood pressure and carries oxygen to the brain.

Malunggay is a natural reservoir of nutritional value as it contains Vit C (7 times with that of orange), Vit A (four times with that in carrots), Calcium (four times with that in milk), Potassium (three times with that in a banana), and Protein (two times with that in milk) and many more. It increases energy, strengthens the immune system, manages diabetes sugar levels, helps lower cholesterol levels and helps lower blood pressure. It is also anti infections, anti cancer, anti inflammatory, and it increases the flow of milk for lactating mothers.

Honey is a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C. It energizes the body, naturally builds the immune system, prevents cancer and aids in healing certain ailments.
