Why You Should Eat An Orange Before Going Out For A Date

Oranges are among the world’s most popular fruits.Also called sweet oranges, they grow on orange trees (Citrus x sinensis) and belong to a large group of fruits known as citrus fruits.


1.Prevents skin damage

Anti-oxidants in oranges help protect skin from free radical damage known to cause signs of aging. An orange a day can help you look young even at 50!


2.May support cancer prevention

According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, dietary fiber "convincingly" lowers the risk of colorectal cancer while fruits in general "probably" lower the risk of lung, stomach, mouth, pharynx, larynx and esophagus cancer.

Citrus limonoids—a compound found in citrus fruits such as oranges—have shown impressive cancer-fighting capabilities in lab tests, including an ability to combat cancers of the lung, breast, stomach, colon, skin and mouth.


3. Oranges Assist with Appetite Control

Oranges are a solid source of fiber. A single fruit contains 12 percent of your daily value.

A diet high in fiber has numerous benefits. According to the Mayo Clinic, it helps normalize bowel movements, lowers cholesterol levels, controls blood sugar, maintains bowel health and aids in achieving a healthy weight. The Harvard School of Public Health states that fiber appears to reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.


4.Good eye health

Oranges are a rich source of carotenoid. The Vitamin A present in them play an important role in keeping the mucus membranes in the eyes healthy. Vitamin A is also responsible to prevent age-related mascular degeneration, which in extreme cases can lead to blindness. It also helps eyes to absorb the light.


5.Controls blood sugar level

Fibre in oranges help by keeping blood sugar levels under control thereby making oranges a healthy snack for people with diabetes. Moreover, oranges have simple sugars. The natural fruit sugar in oranges, fructose, can help keep blood sugar levels from rising too high after eating. Its glycemic index is 40 and normally whatever foods fall under 50 are considered to be low in sugar. However, that does not mean you go about eating too many oranges in one go. Eating too much can spike insulin and may even lead to weight gain.


6.Boosts your immunity

Oranges also contain thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, selenium and copper. Because of their high vitamin C content (over twice the daily need) oranges are associated with boosting the immune system.


7.Helps in brain development

Folate and folic acid present in oranges promote brain development and keep the vital organ in mint condition. In fact, these nutrients also make orange a healthy fruit for pregnant woman as it prevents the baby from having neurological disorders later.


8.Prevents hair loss

Orange has high Vitamin C content which is required for producing collagen which, in turn, is responsible for keeping the tissues in your hair together. Nobody likes bald patches on their head, and eating oranges can ensure that you do not have to part with your lovely hair as you grow older.


9.May Prevent Kidney Stones

Citrate deficiency in urine can cause kidney stones. Oranges (and their juice) can help increase citrate levels in your urine, reducing the risk of kidney stones.

Oranges (and the juice) also contain calcium that may reduce the risk of stones .


10.Weight loss

One cup of oranges contains only 85 calories, making this a nutrient-dense, low-calorie food. The same serving also contains 4.3 grams of dietary fiber. This compound aids in weight loss by promoting regular bowel movements and helping you feel full for longer periods of time.
