I have previously spoken about why it is very important to eat healthy as it can contribute to our living in a lot of ways. But, let's break it down a bit. A very fundamental part of eating healthy involves eating fruits. Fruits contain a lot of vitamins and nutrients which can go a long way in ensuring we live healthily. I will explain the benefits of eating some of our most common fruits.

Oranges: Oranges are high in vitamins and minerals, making them a nutritious powerhouse. The most notable is vitamin C, a water-soluble antioxidant that protects cells from harm. The vitamin C in orange offers additional health benefits:

  • In your bones, it helps to form blood vessels, muscles, cartilage, and collagen.
  • Reduces the severity of illnesses such as asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer by fighting inflammation.
  • Increases the body's immune system's ability to fight infections and bacteria.

Orange fiber can also help control blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol, which can help avoid cardiovascular disease. Potassium, a mineral that governs heartbeat and muscle function, is abundant in oranges. It has been demonstrated to reduce blood pressure in hypertensive patients.
These and a host of others are the numerous benefits Oranges have to offer.
