This snazzy orange coloured-carbohydrate rich juice is a fulfilling breakfast idea. Lemon juice makes it more interesting by imparting a tangy flavour. Papaya helps to maintain blood glucose levels. As there is a steady supply of glucose, you feel energetic throughout the day. It also has a laxative effect thus helping to relieve constipation. As a an added benefit, melons contain a substance "adenosine" that makes blood less sticky, thus reducing the risk of blood clots and heart attack. Because of its high vitamin content this tango is a boost to the immune system as well.
