Citrus fruits offer myriad benefits to boost your health
When you think of citrus fruits, what immediately comes to mind? Probably Florida or California—that’s where many of them are grown. But beyond their growing conditions, what do you think of? Oranges? Well, of course oranges are the most well-known of the citrus fruits, but there are at least a dozen to consider, including the little-known pomelo.
But there’s more to citrus fruits than the states in which they grow and the most famous of their family. Citrus fruits have a host of health benefits that make them a worthy addition to your fruit rotation. For example, there’s potassium. You need this for muscle movement and healthy blood pressure. You also need it so that you can flush out sodium that you don’t need anymore. Potassium does all this, plus also helps to lower stroke and heart disease risk.
