Though the saying asks for “an apple a day”, it seems that having an orange a day is just as good, and may be even better! Oranges are filled with Vitamin C which helps boost your immune system, lessening your doctors visits as well as cutting down any expenses you may have had on multi-vitamins or Vitamin C pills.
Fighting illnesses aside, however, oranges are also one of the best ways you can maintain youthful looking. The Vitamin C found in oranges is a natural and powerful anti-oxidant which kills free radicals and toxins throughout your system. Free radicals and toxins can weaken the skin, causing wrinkles, age spots, and dryness in the skin. By killing off these enemies, your skin stands a better chance of staying young and healthy. This really works! I know a fabulous woman who looks like she’s in her mid-60s, but she’s really an 88-year-old in disguise!
Everything about an orange is good for you. When you peel an orange, you often get stuck with some bits of white parts covering the fleshy part of the fruit. Many people choose to remove this completely so that they only eat the flesh, but this white peel is actually very good for you too. First of all it’s fiber, which helps clean out your system further, again fighting away free radicals and any junk you may have in your body. However, it is also filled with nutrients like calcium which helps strengthen the bones. When you have healthy bones and can stand straight and tall well into your eighties, you’re going to look YEARS younger than your actual age!
Other citrus fruits can do the same thing oranges do. Some examples include apples, watermelon, mangoes, blueberries, and many others from the berry family. Knowing some other substitutes or alternatives can help put variety in your diet, and it can also help solve any problems you may encounter when oranges are not in season. Just remember that as long as you’re dealing with Vitamin C, you’re on the right track!
In general, most fruits and vegetables are great anti aging food which can help boost your health and keep you looking young and healthy. However, to truly fight the aging process, you also have to care for your skin through proper hydration, moisturizing, and other techniques which will keep it from aging and wrinkling.
