We all know the saying “an apple a day keep the doctor away,” but an orange a day could be just as helpful.
There are a ton of reasons why eating an orange a day is a good idea — not only are they low in calories and full of nutrients, they promote clear, healthy skin and can help to lower our risk for many diseases. Plus they are delicious!
A healthy dose of vitamin C—in which oranges are concentrated—provides antioxidant protection and immune support.
Can reduce the risk of colon cancer.
Good source of fiber.
One orange provides a range of vitamins and minerals and a staggering 130 percent of your vitamin C needs for the day.
Helps reduce your chance of stomach ulcers.
While all fruits and vegetables provide their own greatness, I love eating oranges in the summertime after a long run. Something about the sweet and tartness of an orange gets me every time. They are truly one of my favorites fruits.
