They also contain compounds called flavonoids that protect you against diseases like cancer and heart disease. Lastly vitamin C makes collagen, which helps keep bones, skin and joints firm and strong. Drinking the variety of citrus fruits that are in this smoothie regularly will keep your body in top fighting form!

Did you know: Vitamin C in Citrus fruits enhances the absorption of iron in food by binding to the iron in the digestive tract which then gets absorbed by the body together.
