Step 1: Gathering Your Ingredients
This juice (two 16oz servings) was comprised of:
8 to10 home grown oranges (store bought will work too)
about 4 leftover strawberries from my wife's super food salad (LINK)
2 drops of Frankincense (Boswellia essential oil) in each glass
I added the Frankincense because my wife is really into doTERRA essential oils and I was fascinated by the health benefits of it. Note: Frankincense has been proven to be safe for consumption, but if you are pregnant or under the care of a doctor, you should consult your physician before use.
Step 3: Enjoy
The oranges provide lots of vitamin C, B1 and A. Other important components include; pantothenic acid, folate, calcium, copper, and potassium. All this helps to improve the immune system, cardiovascular system, reduces cholesterol and prevent kidney stones. Research also shows oranges prevent cancers of the mouth, throat and stomach.

Strawberries are proven to help with cardiovascular support and the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. They also help to improve regulation of blood sugar, and decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes. Research shows that strawberries may help in the prevention of certain cancers, to include breast, cervical, colon, and esophageal cancer.

Carrots are full of antioxidants and are shown to have cardiovascular benefits, anti-cancer benefits and most notably the support of vision health.

Last, but not least, the Frankincense. There are many documented benefits of Frankincense, to include the lowering of blood pressure, improving brain function, relaxing the body and preventing/curing depression. Frankincense is a sort of panacea, or cure all.
