An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Try an orange!

Here’s why oranges should be a regular part of your diet:

  1. Heart heath: Oranges contain herperidin, which helps to lower blood pressure, and folate, which protects the heart against cardiovascular disease.
  2. Digestive health: Vitamin C prevents ulcers in the digestive tract and the fiber in oranges ensures healthy digestion.
  3. Kidney health: Oranges help to prevent kidney stones and increases efficiency in filtering toxins.
  4. Immune health: Vitamin C is a huge immune booster, and can prevent infection and viruses. Especially in the winter, eating an orange can keep your healthy when everyone else seems to be getting sick.
  5. Skin health: Plenty of oranges means the healthy balance of oils in the skin and can monitor essential vitamins and minerals.
  6. Eye health: Oranges are loaded with carotenoids, which prevents night blindness and macular degeneration.
  7. Anti-cancer health: Citrus fruits in general have been shown to reduce cancer risk by 40-50% because they contain powerful anti-carcinogens.
  8. pH health: Oranges balance body pH by being high in alkaline minerals.
  9. Cholesterol health: Limonin, in oranges, reduces LDL, known as bad cholesterol.
