Good Digestion

 

Oranges contain dietary fibre which can help relieve the stiffness of the faeces by stimulating the digestive juices.

 

A flesh of an orange contains 3.1 grams of fibre while a person should get 25-35 grams of fibre a day. So eating a couple of oranges a day could give you the recommended daily amount of fibre easily.
