Oranges are an excellent source of several vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, thiamine, folate and potassium.
They are also rich in fibre and many bioactive plant compounds, such as antioxidants and carotenoids, which may support digestive health and guarantee health benefits by protecting against heart disease and preventing the formation of kidney stones and anaemia by increasing iron absorption.
A real booster for heart and digestive health.
Just one lemon can provide about 31 mg of vitamin C (51% of the recommended daily intake) and contains fibre, hesperidin, diosmin and citric acid, all substances strongly related to the prevention of anaemia, known for lowering cholesterol levels and helping maintain healthy kidneys and gut.
Soft Citrus encompasses a wide range of varieties. All the mandarins, tangerines, clementines and all the 200+ varieties and hybrids of soft citrus around the world are the perfect healthy snack, as they are very easy to peel and store, and contain fewer than 50 calories each.
Just like other fruits, they are very low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, and are a good source of fibre and vitamins. Like all citrus fruits, mandarins are an excellent source of vitamin C, but provide a higher amount of two antioxidant phytochemicals (beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin) compared with other citrus fruits.
Like many citrus fruits, grapefruit is rich in vitamin C and vitamin A, both useful to boost the immune system, but also in vitamin P, known to support healthy gums and teeth.
Regularly consuming grapefruit (the recommended daily intake of fruit is 2 to 2.5 cups per day in a balanced diet) may improve heart health by reducing risk factors for heart disease (i.e. high blood pressure and cholesterol).
Naturally sweet and good for your heart, grapes are also a source of melatonin, vitamins C (27% of your recommended daily intake) and K (28% of your recommended daily intake) and potassium. K is a vital vitamin for healthy bones, while C is an essential nutrient and powerful antioxidant – but grapes, in fact, contain over 1,600 beneficial plant compounds, especially red grapes, due to the anthocyanins that give them their colour.
