Citrus: The Sun of Many Juices

Citrus is a common term and genus of flowering plants in the rue family, Rutaceae. Citrus is believed to have originated in the part of Southeast Asia bordered by Northeastern India, Myanmar and the Yunnan province of China. Wikipedia
If you’re like any normal person, the bitter taste of leafy greens can be less than desirable. A great way to freshen up your juices is to add a yummy citrus fruit. Limes and lemons are favorites of mine, though I usually only use half a lime (they pack quite the flavor punch).
There are many benefits to citrus juice. They have flavonoids that help prevent cancer, the important Vitamin C, and of course antioxidants. To read about different citrus fruits click on this link here:

Oranges, grapefruits, lemons, limes, all amazing. They’re also great because when you’re juicing them they produce a lot of juice, great for bulking up a juice.
Here is a funny video by Aziz Ansari, talking about rapper 50 cent learning about what a grapefruit is.
