Benefits and properties of the orange

The orange, a symbol of freshness and health, is rich in properties and benefits that make it a valuable ally for daily well-being. Firstly, it's an excellent source of vitamin C, which is essential for boosting the immune system, protecting against infections and helping to absorb iron. Oranges also contain flavonoids, powerful antioxidants that help fight free radicals and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. In addition, the fibre in oranges promotes digestive health, helping to prevent conditions such as constipation. The fruit is also a source of several minerals and vitamins, including potassium, which contributes to the proper functioning of the nervous system and the regulation of blood pressure. The consumption of oranges can therefore have a positive effect on skin health, the prevention of premature ageing and mood, thanks also to its contribution to the production of serotonin.
