6 Surprising Superfoods

Oranges

Delicious, juicy oranges are a celebrated source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps maintain bright, glowing skin and healthy, shiny hair. But did you know that consuming more oranges in your diet can also help reduce your risk for a stroke? It’s true: A recent study funded by the National Institute of Health found that women who consumed the most flavanones — primarily from citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruit — had a 19 percent reduced risk for blood clot-related stroke than those who ate the least. Eat an orange with breakfast, for an afternoon snack, or as a way to satisfy your after-dinner craving for something sweet: You can’t go wrong with this heart-smart, hydrating fruit.
