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.

indigestion because of the soothing and calming herb improve the flow of bile in
the stomach, which speed up digestion. Mint is also used in other forms like oils
and can be beneficial to the skin and IBS. Overall, mint is a great herb.
