The orange as a fruit is among the most popular and commonly used fruits in the world. Besides the great taste, this fruit has a vast amount of health benefits for everyone who eats it regularly. Here are four of the most important reasons to why we need to eat at least 1 orange a day.
It strengthens the immune system – Only a single orange a day can provide you with more than 100% of your daily Vitamin C needs. By strengthening the immune system you protect your organism from any type of flues, infections, and some diseases.
Good for your skin – The aging process, in combination with the bad influence of the concentration of free radicals in our organism, puts our skin under major stress and we need to take care of our diet and regular exercise routine in order to make sure that we provide our body with the high levels of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that it needs to deal with the large amounts of stress that almost everyone in our busy world is put under. Oranges have high concentrations of antioxidants in them as well as Vitamin C, which help slow down the aging process of our skin and maintain its youthful appearance.
For better eyesight – Aging also hurts our eyesight and it has become almost mandatory for older people to wear glasses. However, a simple daily routine involving one orange a day can help you preserve and maintain your good eyesight. The fruit is rich of Vitamin A and potassium, which are the most essential nutrients out there, which you can use to protect your eyesight.
Helps your cardiac function and lowers the risk of heart attack –One of the major reasons why people suffer cardiac diseases is the blocking of their arteries as a result of bad eating habits and the consumptions of the so called “junk food.” Oranges contain flavonoids such as hesperidin, which lower cholesterol and prevent blockages in the arteries. This is why oranges reduce the risk of heart attack, as well as of other diseases related to the cardiovascular system.
