What are the health benefits of oranges?

Oranges have long been known as a rich source of Vitamin C which helps to boost immunity - the key reason we’re often told to eat an orange when we start to feel run down. Other notable health benefits include:

  • Rich in antioxidants which supports a youthful complexion
  • Lowers cholesterol levels
  • Controls blood sugar levels
  • Alkalises the body which aids with digestion
  • Rich source of carotenoid which supports eye health

And ginger?

Ginger is a familiar and well known spice that has a warming quality ideal for winter months. It is highly flavoursome and has a number of medicinal compounds.

Some of Ginger’s traditional medicinal uses which have been supported in medical trials include:

  • Digestive complaints, including vomiting
  • Nausea caused by motion sickness and pregnancy
  • Relief of inflammatory conditions including arthritis and myalgia conditions
  • Analgesic effects for conditions such as migraines
  • Improves circulation and cardio-vascular health (therefore caution if taking blood thinning medications)
  • Improves HDL/LDL cholesterol ratios
  • Can alleviates asthma symptoms
