Blood oranges are in season now and make awesome additions to food and drink recipes alike! Main benefits to blood oranges OVER regular ones are the deep pigmented tannins known as anthocyanidins ➡️ which are strong antioxidants.
Dark red, blue and purple coloured foods are super beneficial for countering oxidative stress. Basically, this means that antioxidants help counter, delay & prevent the unintentional creation of reactive molecules that cause damage to the body's cellular membranes. So in brief, antioxidants SUCH AS anthocyanidins act as a defense system against wild destructive molecules called: Free Radicals...bum bum bum cue Hans Zimmer tract 😮 now...
Just the very act of being a species that relies on oxygen interaction to support virtually any biological activity makes us a continuous target for free radical damage, and this doesn't even include the outside agents of attack, like radiation, stress and so on. Our long term health & vitality, including the way we look, how strong our heart is AND our likelihood of developing mutated cells relies on an intricate and delicate buffering system of oxidation vs anti-oxidation mechanisms in the body.
Eating antioxidant-rich foods regularly is a sure way to support this protective buffering system! So by all means consume blood oranges, and make this Campari style juice too 🙌.
