Oranges are very healthy, containing a large amount of micro- and macroelements, says nutritionist Yulia Polovynska. But you need to eat them carefully.
The benefits of oranges are great and indisputable, but in certain cases, this popular fruit can have a negative impact on human health.
“Oranges are very healthy, containing a large amount of micro- and macroelements. One orange contains the daily requirement of vitamin C. Oranges contain flavonoids, substances that regulate the growth of the body and have an antioxidant effect. Oranges lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, strengthen the walls of blood vessels, have an antipyretic effect, are used in the treatment of ulcers and wounds, lower cholesterol, and help to preserve youth and beauty longer,” she says.
However, the expert added that oranges, like any citrus fruit, are a strong allergen. If consumed in large quantities, they can cause allergic reactions and even anaphylactic shock. In addition, in case of gastrointestinal diseases, you should be careful about eating oranges on an empty stomach.
According to Polovynska, orange is highly acidic. And this can have a bad effect on tooth enamel. It increases the risk of its destruction. That’s why it’s better to rinse your mouth after eating an orange or drink orange juice through a straw.
