Citrus fruits like oranges are perfect this time of year. They are known for being a great source of vitamin C which is a great way to give our immune system a boost during the cold and flu season. Oranges can also provide other health benefits to keep us strong and healthy which include:

-Protects your cells from damage

-Helps your body make collagen, a protein that heals wounds and gives you smoother skin

-Makes it easier to absorb iron to fight anemia

-Slows the advance of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of vision loss

-Helps fight cancer-causing free radicals

-Provide a dose of folate for moms and babies

-Citric acid and citrates. These compounds help prevent kidney stones from forming.
