Abstract: The aim of the research concerns the definition of the effects of regular orange juice consumption on oxidative stress and tumor risks. Orange juice contains a mixture of powerful antioxidants, such as flavonoids (mainly hesperidin and naringenin), carotenoids, vitamin C and other molecules acting on health, such as folates.

The research was carried out on a sample of healthy men and women to whom were administered, three times per day, 236ml of concentrated orange juice containing 256 mg of vitamin C, 271 mg of flavonoids, 6mg of carotenoids, and 0.16 mg of folates. At the end of the observation period, the concentration of the indicated molecules in the plasma was evaluated and the result suggested that regular orange juice consumption is a significant source of substances acting on health and it improves the phytochemicals concentration in the blood, which is precious for the health.
