Nutrition, Health, and Beauty Benefits of Oranges
Oranges offer wonderful health benefits. They can boost your immune system but also help with heart health. Most people already know that oranges are full of vitamin C. In addition to that health benefit, oranges are a powerful antioxidant-rich fruit. They help protect the body from free radicals that could otherwise damage the cells of your body. Potassium found in oranges helps lower blood pressure, a heart-protective property.
The fiber in the orange helps with your digestive health and can help reduce cholesterol levels. Oranges can also help with cognitive function. Studies have shown an improvement in blood flow to the brain after consuming citrus juices.
