    The pulp contains the orange juice.

    The orange is one of the most common and popular fruit. It is well-liked because of its easy availability all year round, dense nutrition, and it tastes good.

    Health Benefits

    An orange packs over 170 different phytonutrients and more than 60 flavonoids, many of which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour and blood clot inhibiting properties, as well as strong anti-oxidant effects.

    The combination of the high amount of anti-oxidant (vitamin C) and flavonoids in oranges makes it one of the best fruits in helping to promote optimal health.

    Arteriosclerosis: Regularly consuming vitamin C retards the development of hardening of the arteries.

    Cancer prevention: A compound in oranges called liminoid, has been found to help fight cancers of the mouth, skin, lung, breast, stomach and colon. The high vitamin C content also acts as a good anti-oxidant that protects cells from damages by free radicals.

    Cholesterol: The alkaloid synephrine found under the orange peel can reduce the liver's production of cholesterol. Whereas the anti-oxidant fights oxidative stress that is the main culprit in oxidizing the LDLs in our blood.

    Constipation: Even though the orange "tastes acidic", it actually has an alkaline effect in the digestive system and helps stimulate the digestive juices, relieving constipation.

    Damaged sperms, repair: An orange a day is sufficient for a man to keep his sperms healthy. Vitamin C, an anti-oxidant, protects sperms from genetic damage that may cause a birth defect.

    Heart disease: A high intake of flavonoids and vitamin C has been known to halve the risk of heart diseases.

    High blood pressure: Studies have shown that a flavonoid called hesperidin in oranges can lower high blood pressure.

    Immune system: The strong content of vitamin C stimulates white cells to fight infection, naturally building a good immune system.

    Kidney stones, prevent: Drinking orange juice daily can significantly drop the risk of formation of calcium oxalate stones in the kidney.

    Skin: The anti-oxidant in orange help protect the skin from free radical damage known to cause signs of aging.

    Stomach ulcer: Consuming vitamin C rich foods helps to lower the incidence of peptic ulcers and in turn, reduce the risk of stomach cancer.

    Viral infections, protection against: The abundance of polyphenols have been shown to provide protection against viral infections.

    Pulp is better. Obviously, there is more fiber in the pulpy one which is not only good for you but helps slow the digestion of the sugars in the juice so you don't crash later. Pulp all the way!
