Add a Healthy Squeeze with Oranges

Oranges and their “cousins,” mandarins and tangerines, are a concentrated source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that supports the body’s defenses and protects against the effects of aging. They’re also a good source of potassium, which supports a healthy heart. One whole orange can fulfill the recommended daily intake of vitamin C and usually has less than 100 calories, depending on the size and variety. Oranges can provide dietary fiber, too, but you must eat orange segments (not just the juice) to fully get this benefit.
