Oranges are rich in vitamin C that’s essential for immune system function, proper wound healing and for fighting off wrinkles. In fact, eating one orange will give you all the vitamin C you need for an entire day.
Oranges are also high in fiber that will keep your digestive system in top condition, plus several antioxidants that may have extra health and anti-aging benefits.
Women who are thinking about getting pregnant should know that eating oranges provides plenty of folate, a B-complex vitamin that helps to prevent a birth defect called spina bifida.
You’ll get the most nutritional value by eating fresh oranges rather than drinking orange juice because the juice doesn’t have all the healthy fiber that you’ll get from the whole fruit. But, if you do like orange juice, look for brands that have added calcium, which is essential for strong bones, and nerve and muscle function.
