Like others in the citrus family, oranges are packed with vitamin C which works as a powerful antioxidant due to its water solubility. This means vitamin C is able to be put to work inside cells helping to protect both their strength and structure to maintain a smooth, wrinkle free complexion. The fibre content in oranges also helps to reduce spikes in blood sugar levels while aiding the removal of toxins from the body.
Oranges are great added to fruit salad or as an easy snack. They can also be juiced and mixed with some mint to create a refreshing (healthy!) cocktail.
Commercial oranges currently have a high pesticide use so try and buy organic oranges when possible!
