Vitamin C from food is much more  beneficial to the body than isolating it in supplements (ie: ascorbic acid). Vitamin C from foods such as oranges, provides more protective benefits than consuming the supplement on its own.  This salad is a great way to incorporate some Vitamin C into your diet.  Vitamin C provides great antioxidant protection and immune support.  Oranges are a great source of fiber, they help prevent ulcers and reduce stomach cancers.  Plenty of reasons to consume an orange a day!
