Orange - Heart Health

Orange contains a highly soluble fiber called pectin, which acts like a large sponge and sops up cholesterol sourced from different food items preventing its absorption.

Pectin also neutralizes galectin-3, a protein known to cause heart tissue scarring. The high potassium content of orange, on the other hand, counterbalances salt and thereby helps in keeping blood pressure normal.
