Blood Orange Kombucha

Blood oranges are wonderful and full of unique flavor. They are less acidic than regular oranges and I think they have a raspberry taste that is wonderful in kombucha. Blood oranges also have folic acid and B9 which aids in the prevention of heart disease and cancers. Blood oranges’ red pigmentation contains anthocyanins, which are basic natural compounds that give color to fruits, plants, and vegetables. Researchers believe that anthocyanins have anti-inflammatory properties that affect the collagen, making the skin more elastic and reducing inflammation throughout the body.
