Citrus fruits are well known as a source of vitamins and minerals because of the fact, in 100 grams of ingredients there are 30 - 50 mg of vitamin C. Although vitamin C in oranges is not so much, it is able to supply 116% of daily value for vitamin C intake. Surely it is more than enough to keep the body fit and healthy for a full day.

    Orange is a rich source of magnesium and will help regulate blood pressure. Flavonoids called hesperidin naturally present in oranges also make the blood pressure under control.

Cholesterol oxidization tends to stick to the inside of the arteries and limit the blood supply to the heart. It can trigger a heart attack. But this heart attack can be prevented by the antioxidants present in citrus fruits. This content helps neutralize the effects of free radicals and protect the heart from disease.

Upvoted the post! I really like this article! Even if this orange is a citrus and acidic. It shares many beneficial qualities as food that are listed under alkaline. Now, this reminds me that I should share with steemit about Sugar Cane Juice. I used to cold press them and they are very familiar to qualities of an orange as you stated!
