Oranges are one of the World's Healthiest Foods
This week we celebrate oranges as powerhouses of vitamin C, one of the body.s most important sources of antioxidant protection. Antioxidants combat free radicals, which have been associated with damage to cell structures, including DNA, and also have been linked to the increased risk of numerous diseases. Free radicals are not only increased through smoking, pollution and the over consumption of alcohol, but are also natural by-products of cellular metabolism, so it is a good idea to include as many antioxidant-rich foods in your Healthier Way of Eating as possible. Easy to carry in its protective skin, a juicy orange is the perfect morning starter, afternoon snack or after dinner dessert. One medium orange contains only 61 calories and provides 116% of the daily value for vitamin C!
