I love oranges. They are by far my most favorite fruit. I will have at least one orange a day if not more and will place orange slices in my water. Oranges provide a wide variety of benefits; everything from skin to hair reap the benefits of this amazing fruit. Below are the 4 benefits to eating oranges.
- eye health
- reduces the risk of stroke
- lowers cholesterol
- promotes healthier skin and hair
One regular size orange can contain up to 130% of your daily amount of Vitamin C. This greatly improves skin and your eye health.
Due to the staggering amount of Vitamin C in oranges, doctors suggest a healthy diet including oranges and other citrus fruits could greatly reduce the risk of ischemic stroke in women. Vitamin C is also known to reduce the risk of hemorrhagic stroke.
