Benefits of Eating Oranges

So Lately I have been eating a lot of oranges. I don't know why if I don't really like oranges. So I started getting concerned, I did not feel bad or sick and I was eating around 10 oranges throughout the day. So I was looking online if there is a limit of how many you can eat everyday. Turns out you have to eat 100 every day for a whole month to have kidney failure. Of course I don't know anyone who would do this and I am sure I wouldn't do it my self. As I was looking at this I also found interesting information about the benefits of eating oranges.

1. Prevention of Cancer
The American Cancer society states that increasing your intake of vitamin C helps prevent cancers of the respiratory tract.

2. Dietary Fiber
Eating oranges helps to obtain the necessary fiber for the prevention of constipation.

3. Vitamins and Minerals
Oranges also contain vitamins A, B, folic acid, chlorine, iron, zinc, phosphorus, iodine, manganese, potassium, pectin, amino acids and calcium.

4. Liminoid

5. Prevention of Arthritis
The antioxidant beta-cryptoxanthin helps reduce the risk of arthritis.

6. Lowering Your Cholesterol
Oranges are full of soluble fiber, which is especially beneficial for lowering cholesterol levels.

Clutter Free with Music Magpie

My hubby is a DVDs and video game hoarders. Like you can imagine we have a large amount of DVDs, video games and Cd's we don't use. We have game consoles from back in the day and if I could get rid of them I would.

We recently moved from Riverside to LA and I found out how much stuff we actually had. Though it was a very short amount of time that I had to pack, I was able to separate all the DVDs games etc in a different box. It makes it difficult for anybody to move or even save space for other things when you have cabinets full of stuff. So I made it a challenge for me to get rid of some of the old stuff and I found the perfect way of doing so!

Guylian Chocolate Review

I was so excited about the opportunity to review Guylian Chocolates! I have a sweet tooth so this made my day when I opened my box filled with delicious goodies.

All of the chocolates come with a signature hazelnut filling that is to die for!
