In recent studies, they found that oranges have different compound phytonutrients, that include citrus flavanones (types of flavonoids, which involves the molecules hesperetin and naringenin), anthocyanins, hydroxycinnamic acids, and a variety of polyphenols. Also, it has another flavanone in oranges, the herperidin molecule, which has been singled out in phytonutrient research in oranges. Herperidin is known to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol and has strong anti inflammatory properties in them. Most importantly, the peel and inner white pulp of the orange, other than its liquid has the most health benefits, which are removed during the process of making orange juice.

How aware are you of the importance of vitamin C? Vitamin C is the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body, disarming free radicals and preventing damage in the aqueous environment both inside and outside cells. By disarming free radicals, it helps protect you from cancer, which prevents DNA mutations that translates into preventing colon cancer. Also, it helps prevent inflammatory conditions, such as asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Vitamin C help neutralizes free radicals that can lead to artery plaque, which often times lead to either heart attack or stroke. And, most of all, it helps protect the immune system that helps protect you from colds and chronic ear infections.

Citrus fruit is also known for reducing cardiovascular disease due to folate, which lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, homocysteine; their, potassium, which helps lower blood pressure and reduces cholesterol, protecting against stroke and cardiac arrhythmias; and the vitamin C, carotenoids and flavonoids found in citrus fruits, all of which have been identified as having protective cardiovascular effects.

Oranges not only help prevent cardiovascular disease, but it helps to prevent arthritis, asthma, Alzheimer's disease and cognitive impairment, Parkinson's disease, macular degeneration, diabetes, gallstones, multiple sclerosis, cholera, gingivitis, optimal lung function, cataracts, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, as well. Oranges have over 170 different phytonutrients and more than 60 flavonoids, many of which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour and blood clot inhibiting properties, as well as strong antioxidant effects.
