Orange can prevent gallstones

Orange has a high content of vitamin C, which is a favorite fruit for many people. But an unexpected benefit of eating more oranges is to reduce the incidence of gallstones.

Frequent consumption of oranges can reduce the incidence of gallstones, because vitamin C in oranges can inhibit the conversion of cholesterol into bile acid in the liver, thus lowering the cholesterol concentration in the bile and eventually reducing the chance of gallstone formation.
