What we know as the most vital source of Vitamin C.
Though. There are definatly other benefits that come from it.
For example. It contains Beta Carotene. Which is usually in all foods that are orange (natural foods that is. not cheetos).
What is that good for? Memory. Best for people who are in for a good study sesh and will need a great memory for tests.
When you eat a whole Orange, you are also taking in some dietary fiber.
Having some albedo (the white substance from the peel), you are also taking in a good high amount of bioflavonoids and other anti-cancer agents. This is also good for lower-ing cholesterol.
Oranges are also a good source of: vitamin A, B vitamins, amino acids, pectin, potassium, folic acid, calcium, iodine, phosphorus, sodium, zinc, manganese, chlorine and iron.
As well as all this, Oranges also have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour and blood clot inhibiting properties!
This fruit has showb to be one of the best fruits in helping to promote optimal health!
The folic acid in oranges protects against birth defects and supports in the detoxification of homocysteine, a protein that is toxic to the arterial wall. This fruit is definatly packed with much strong antioxidant effects as you can see.
Oranges contains more glucose than other fruits and is most superior to have than other fruits when you need to raise blood glucose levels quickly!
I suggest to always make your own orange juice. That way, its fresher, enzymes are most able to react, and you are going to feel great! This is good also on a budget.
No me gusta processed orange juice. No matter if they advertised as "fresh." They are also filled with more added sugar and chemical preservatives for "freshness."
