Want to fight inflammation and boost your health? Look no further than oranges! 

This is largely due to the high content of a compound called naringenin in oranges. One of the most important benefits of naringenin is its ability to inhibit inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a natural response to injury or infection, but chronic inflammation can lead to a variety of health problems, including heart disease, cancer and autoimmune disorders
