Benefits of Oranges

Benefits of Oranges: Oranges can be had not only as a snack but also as a major recipe ingredient in various dishes. Nowadays orange juice is an integral part of a healthy breakfast thus promoting a healthy start to the day. They’re mainly available in two categories — sweet and bitter, with the former being the type most commonly consumed. Generally, an orange should have smoothly textured skin and be firm and heavy for its size. These will have higher juice content than those that are either spongy or lighter in weight.

Side-Effects of Oranges

Oranges are great for you, but you should enjoy them in moderation, Flores warned. “Eating too many oranges has some uncomfortable side effects,” she said. “When eaten in excess, the greater fiber content can affect digestion, causing abdominal cramps and could also lead to diarrhea.”

Though oranges are relatively low in calories, eating several of the fruits in a day can add up and may lead to weight gain. It is also possible to have too much vitamin C (more than 2,000 mg a day). An excess of this nutrient may lead to diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, bloating or cramps, headaches, insomnia, or kidney stones.
