Just in one glass of orange juice, there is about 125 mg of vitamin C.

They also contain a high potassium content and a high calcium content.  Oranges are a good source of folate, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids, vitamin B1, potassium, copper and pantothenic acid).

Out of all the citrus fruits, oranges contain the most vitamin A (as beta-carotene), which helps against infections by supporting the immune system and preventing recurrent ear infections.

Oranges are full of soluble fibre which is helpful in lowering cholesterol.  They also contain a flavonoid called hesperidin, which has strong anti-inflammatory properties.
