A perfect mix of textures and tangy, spicy, and sweet flavors, the Florida Orange Juice Shrimp Quinoa Bowl packs a powerful nutritious punch. The vitamin B6 in the Florida OJ and the vitamin B12 in the shrimp work together to reduce inflammation. The powerhouse combination decreases the risk of heart disease and stroke. Additionally, vitamin E found in quinoa enhances the absorption of the vitamin A found in Florida Orange Juice. Together these vitamins lead to increased antioxidant capabilities, support a healthier gut, and work to decrease inflammation and increase brain health and immunity.
