Oranges are not only a great source of vitamin C – providing 163% of your daily needs in just one orange – but they’re also a great source of fiber. One large orange provides you with 17% of your daily fiber needs.

Fiber from whole foods is important for both weight loss and gut health, here’s why …

Fiber can help stop cravings and hunger since it moves through the GI tract slowly, creating a sense of fullness. Feeling full and satisfied from whole foods will help keep you on track with good eating habits, making weight loss easier.

Fiber adds bulk to stool which helps to increase stool frequency. Healthy and frequent bowel movements are an important part of gut health.

In addition, whole food fiber also acts as a prebiotic which fuels good gut bacteria. Healthy gut bacteria are not only important for good gut health, but also weight loss and many other areas of health.

DID YOU KNOW? The FDA approves the de-greening (forced ripening) of oranges, making it difficult to select the ripest and most flavourful fruit. If you buy organic oranges, you will know for certain that they have not been de-greened.
