Vitamin C is great for Antioxidant protection and immune support. Move over, Apple! Oranges are keeping the doctor away! Vitamin C supplements are not enough, Orange juice helps protect against free radicals, which oxidize cholesterol causing plaque build up.

Oranges help protect against cardiovascular disease, are low in fat and nutrient rich. These help with a low glycemic index and protect against obesity that can lead to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and stroke!

With 170 phytonutrients and 60 flavonoids oranges have an anti-inflammatory property and also help reduce your risk of tumors and inhibit blood clots. What great things this little fruit can do!
