Oranges are healthy. They
contain vitamin C, which helps protect our bodies from
disease and helps our bodies grow and circulate blood
properly. They also contain fiber which can help with
digestion. Eating just one orange provides enough vitamin C
for a full day. To maximize your health benefits, eat the
orange on an empty stomach about 20 minutes before a meal.
