Mohit Joshi : Eating an orange is much better for one's health than simply
taking vitamin C pills.
A host of antioxidants in orange work together to retard ageing and possibly
keep heart disease and cancer at bay, the Journal of Food Science reports.
"There is something about an orange that's better than taking a vitamin C
capsule, and that is really what we're trying to figure out," said Tory Parker,
assistant professor of nutrition, dietetics and food science at Brighan Young
University in US.
Parker and his team concluded that 'phenolic compounds' in oranges, rich in
antioxidants and anti-microbial properties worked in tandem, according to a
Brighan Young statement.(IANS)
