In the 18th century, a nutrient deficiency among sailors called scurvy was discovered. Can you guess what vitamin deficiency that is? Yup, vitamin C. Sailors were also given limes and lemons, which is what gave them the nickname limeys back in the day. But…that’s another story.
So, what exactly is in oranges that prevents us from getting ill? How do we benefit from them? Oranges are not only rich in Vitamin C, they’re abundant in fiber, folate, potassium, thiamine, and antioxidants. They’re mainly composed of carbs and water, and have very little protein, fat, and calories. Let’s assume that from today, you start eating 1 to 2 oranges every day. As time progresses, you’ll begin to see a lot of changes happening in your body.

– One large orange contains only 87 calories, which makes it a low-calorie, nutrient-dense food. That serving offers approximately 4 grams of dietary fiber, which is best known for its ability to improve gut health.
– The large amounts of water in oranges helps your skin to stay hydrated, giving it that dewy glow. But, let’s not forget the most important compound: vitamin C – Which helps your body produce more collagen.
– Flavanones have shown to improve memory by activating pathways in the hippocampus: the part of the brain responsible for learning and memories. So, you can go grab that brain-boosting fruit of yours while learning a thing or two.
– Sometimes we see a grey hair on our heads, and we feel it, deep in our souls: this is the beginning of the end. But all drama aside, maybe we’re just not eating enough oranges.
– Since oranges are also rich in anti-oxidants, they protect hair strands against oxidative stress.
– Scientists at the Westmead Institute for Medical Research in Sydney have found that eating just one orange every day reduces your risk of weak eyesight by up to 60%.
– Collagen plays its part here too. It helps to give the structure to your eyes.
– Oranges are rich in potassium. This helps to keep your nervous system functioning healthily, and can lower high blood pressure.
– Oranges are also abundant in folate, a B-vitamin that helps your body lower its levels of an amino acid called homocysteine. This is usually found in red meat, and is linked to poor heart health.
– Not having enough vitamin C in our diets can prevent wounds from healing on time, can cause our bones to become weaker, and can even cause our joints to become painfully swollen.
– Eating an orange everyday can disarm free-radicals, and prevent them from damaging the environment of the cells.
– The orange peel has a lot more fiber than the pulp; it’s abundant in calcium, vitamin C, several B vitamins, and vitamin A. But there’s a catch: they’re not digested very easily.
