Benefits

Oranges are my favorite citrus fruits. They’re full of vitamins and minerals that are made

to keep you young and healthy. Oranges prevent various forms of cancer including liver

(studies point to vitamin A), skin, lung, breast, colon, and stomach. Oranges are rich in

vitamin C protecting cells and preventing free radical formation, and which prevents

much dis-ease like cancer. Being full in water, potassium, and fiber oranges are great for

a healthy heart and lowering cholesterol. Regular intake of orange juice can prevent

kidney dis-eases and reduce kidney stones. Oranges are good for lowering cholesterol

because they’re full of soluble fiber making them easy to digest and lower cholesterol.

Oranges are good for your heart because they’re rich in potassium, which is an essential

electrolyte mineral for helping the heart function and work properly. If you developed an

irregular heart rhythm it may be that your potassium levels are too low which is known as

arrhythmia. Oranges are also great for your skin because of the beta-carotene found in

oranges that protect cells from being damaged and free radicals from forming causing

aging. Finally, oranges relieve constipation, alkalize the body (after digested), and are

easy carbs.
