Pain-Killing Foods #8: Oranges

January 25, 2015 1 min read

Hard to believe that a cup of OJ or a few orange slices in the morning can help to prevent arthritis pain, but the truth is that oranges are a powerful anti-inflammatory remedy! Oranges are rich in Vitamin C, which can help to prevent the onset of flus, colds, and infections. While it won't do much to TREAT the problem once it has set in, it can help to reduce the severity of the symptoms. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Source: ohgo.sh[/caption] But what makes oranges so great for killing pain is the fact that they are rich in beta-cryptoxanthin. This fancy-sounding compound is a type of carotene, nutrients that your body can convert into Vitamin A. Not only can this carotene help to reduce toxins and prevent free radical damage, but studies have discovered that it can reduce your risk of rheumatoid arthritis by a stunning 41%! It can even stop the cells in your body from becoming cancerous. A cancer-preventing, cold-treating, arthritis-relieving nutrient found in oranges? As if you needed any more excuses to start your day with a piece of fruit!
