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.

 

Carrots are undoubtedly one of the best sources for antioxidants that

fight against many cancers and cardio vascular disease. The rich

antioxidants levels found in carrots have shown in several studies to

protect against cardio vascular disease by replacing the damaged

antioxidants in the arteries, therefore adding more oxygen to the blood

stream. Studies have proven that regular intake of carrot or carrot

juice has helped patients by reducing their chances of lung and colon

cancer. Amazing what a carrot can do for your health. The beta-

carotene found in carrots is responsible for protecting against many

cancers for example prostate, colon, and lung cancer. Carrots are also

great for your vision having a high content of Vitamin A, but although

studies have shown that a vitamin A deficiency is needed before in

order for the Vitamin A in carrots to restore vision. This is common in

developing countries or anyone not eating vitamin rich foods.

Different carrots have different antioxidants depending on the colors

of the carrots. Carrots are overall a great source of antioxidants that

protect against many cancers.
