Oranges during winter

Winter is the best time to eat oranges, lemons or mandarins. Eating oranges is beneficial thanks to extremely tasteful dose of vitamin C. Even peeling an orange is beneficial as the essential oils released at that occasion make you feel relaxed and influence your mood.

Oranges are reach in vitamin C but not the reachest! More vitamin C can be found in blackcurrant, wild rose or parsley.  Still one orange daily is enough to cover our daily vitamin C requirement. Vitamin C helps to strengthen immunity, participates in the red blood cells synthesis and improves skin condition. It is also a very strong antioxidant. Vitamin C in oranges is better bioavailable thanks to flavonoids that are present in the white part of oranges peel. That is why it is advisable not too peel the fruit too carefully.

All the oranges and a tissue they are packed in are covered with chemicals. Remember to clean fruit thoroughly with a brush before eating. Then clean also your hands to remove any residues of chemicals.

There is unfortunately one effect of eating oranges or drinking orange juice that is negative during winter – oranges make you feel like it was colder than it truly is.
