Oranges are well known for their vitamin C content which is a powerful antioxidant, helping protect our cells from damage. Just one medium orange will provide the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of vitamin C for adults.
They also contain health-promoting compounds known as flavanones. Research suggests that these citrus phytochemicals help support the body and protect us from conditions such as heart disease and cancer, as well as having some anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antimicrobial benefits.
Oranges are also a good source of fibre, B vitamins, vitamin A, calcium and potassium.
