From hydration to preventing and healing viral infection, oranges are truly an amazing food!  They are good for lymphatic flow and that in the white part just under the skin you will find a plethora of bioflavonoids and other anti-cancer agents.
 

 

I’ve always thought they looked like a woman’s breasts on the inside, as well as the outside.
 
Could oranges and the citrus family play a role in preventing breast cancer?
 
 
Considering that an orange packs 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 anti-oxidant effects, I think anyone wanting to prevent or even put cancer into remission could benefit!
 
 
I personally love oranges and orange juice. They just taste amazing and are a lot of fun I think to peel and eat. I will go through 3-4 of them with my little girl Seaenah – there’s something about the anticipation of getting into an orange that gets your taste buds excited and saliva flowing.  I love knowing the health benefits that are coming into our bodies while we’re enjoying them.
 
Regularly consuming vitamin C in oranges retards the development of hardening of the arteries, so you wont have to worry about arteriosclerosis.  Also, a compound in oranges called liminoid, has been shown to prevent Cancer of the mouth, skin, lung, breast, stomach and colon.
 
 

 

You would think an orange is acidic but it actually has an alkaline effect in the digestive system and helps stimulate the digestive juices, relieving constipation.
 
If that’s not enough already, drinking orange juice daily can significantly reduce the formation of calcium oxalate stones in the kidney!
 
Oranges are also a great food to eat as a natural sunblock.  They’re loaded with antioxidants and will protect your skin from sun damage.  On top of all that, it’s abundance of polyphenols have been shown to provide protection against viral infections.
 
The iron and Vitamin B6 in oranges increase the oxygen carrying capacity and also purify’s the blood.  The calcium in oranges help keep your bones and teeth strong.oranges-for-cancer
All around Oranges are a Super food and will always have their place in my kitchen.
 
Juice it up, make a fruit salad, get creative or just peel and eat.
