Eating a healthy well-rounded diet is one of the best ways to keep your body fit, your immune system strong, and to live a long and healthy life.
Oranges are one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Oranges are packed with vitamins and nutrients, plus they can provide you with many health benefits. An average orange only contains about 80 calories, which makes it a great option if you're trying to lose weight. Oranges are packed with vitamin C, containing 85% of your daily intake. They also contain vitamin A, calcium, vitamin B6, and magnesium. Oranges also have natural sugars, carbohydrates, potassium, protein, and dietary fiber.
Oranges have many medicinal uses as well. Oranges can help keep your blood pressure under control, prevent skin damage, keep your immune system strong, lower your cholesterol, and help lower your risk for cancer. Oranges are great eaten alone, put into a smoothie or juiced, added into a salad, or mixed into yogurt. They can be good as a sweet treat as well, mixed into ice cream or dipped in chocolate.
