1. High in Antioxidants
Citrus fruits like oranges are packed with health-promoting antioxidants. (2) Antioxidants are compounds that fight free radicals to prevent oxidative stress and protect against chronic disease. Antioxidants are believed to play a role in the development of conditions like heart disease, cancer and diabetes. (3)
In particular, oranges are high in bioflavonoids like hesperidin and hesperetin, which have been shown in test-tube studies to help neutralize free radicals, reduce inflammation and decrease oxidative damage to cells. (4)
2. Enhances Immunity
Oranges are one of the best sources of vitamin C, packing in 163 percent of what you need for the whole day in just one serving. In addition to its powerful antioxidant properties, vitamin C is also revered for its ability to improve immune function.
One review published in the Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism showed that getting enough vitamin C could help reduce symptoms and shorten the duration of respiratory tract infections like the common cold. Additionally, it could also decrease the incidence and improve the outcome for conditions like pneumonia, malaria and diarrhea. (5)
3. Helps Fight Cancer
Thanks to their high antioxidant content, some research indicates that getting your daily dose of oranges could help protect against and prevent the development of cancer. That’s why citrus fruits are often among the top cancer-fighting foods.
In fact, eating more citrus fruit has been associated with a lower risk of several types of cancer. One study in Korea, for example, found that having a high intake of citrus fruits was associated with a 10 percent reduction in the risk of developing breast cancer. (6)
4. Rich in Fiber
Oranges are a great source of fiber, with just one large orange knocking out up to 17 percent of your daily fiber requirements. When you eat fiber, it moves through your gastrointestinal tract slowly, promoting satiety, adding bulk to the stool and getting things moving.
One large analysis out of China compiled the results of five studies and showed that fiber can increase stool frequency in people with constipation. (11) Fiber also acts as a prebiotic to provide fuel for the beneficial bacteria in your gut. Your gut microbiome is crucial to many aspects of health and is believed to influence the development of many different types of disease. (12)

In one study, people with high cholesterol were supplemented with citrus flavonoids for a period of four to 12 weeks. Daily treatment reduced total cholesterol by up to 30 percent, slashed bad LDL cholesterol by up 27 percent and cut triglyceride levels by up to 34 percent. (13)
Similarly, another study published in the Journal of Epidemiology showed that frequent consumption of citrus fruits was associated with a significant reduction in the risk of heart disease and stroke. (14)
6. Boosts Brain Function
The flavonoids found in oranges could help preserve cognitive function and prevent neurodegenerative disorders like dementia or Alzheimer’s. A study in the British Journal of Nutrition even found that a higher intake of citrus fruits was linked to improvements in cognitive function among older adults. (15)
According to a recent 2017 study, the neuroprotective effects of citrus fruits may stem from the presence of two important flavonoids, nobiletin and tangeretin. (16) Although more research is needed, preliminary findings from animal studies suggest that these flavonoids could be useful in the treatment and prevention of dementia. (17, 18)
7. Keeps Skin Healthy
As a common ingredient in many skin care products, it’s no secret that the orange fruit benefits for skin are pretty impressive. In fact, some research shows that certain types of oranges may even been be able to help fight and reverse skin aging.

Sample submitted: “CBD Tincture With Orange – 250 mg”
Notes: This tincture is labelled 250 mg CBD/ 30 ml bottle. Analysis indicates 8.5 mg/ml CBD. Each 30 ml bottle contains approximately 255 mg CBD. (This calculation includes conversion from mg/g to mg/ml by multiplying the results by the density of Olive oil (0.95 g/ml). i.e 268 mg/g x 0.95g/ml = 255 mg/ml.)
Activated vs non-activated: activated cannabinoids are non-acidic (neutral) and are the form utilized by the human brain/ body. Activation occurs via heating (smoking, vaporizing, cooking). Cannabinoids in the natural plant are acidic (non-activated) and need to be converted to their neutral form in order to be utilized by the human body. Therefore one would expect fresh cannabis buds to contain mainly non-activated cannabinoids. Processed materials (baked goods, heated extracts) should be higher in the activated forms.
Absent Cannabinoids: if a cannabinoid or terpene is blank, it is not necessarily absent but below the limit of detection by the detector (usually less than 0.01%).
