Oranges and Kefir ~ 🍊
Consuming vitamin C supplements does not provide the same protective benefits as drinking orange juice, says Italian researchers in the British Journal of Nutrition. Leading researcher Serena Guarnieri says, “It appears that vitamin C is not the only chemical responsible for antioxidant protection.” There is a matrix of phytochemicals, for example, cyanidin-3-glucoside, flavanones and carotenoids. You’ll get more of what your body needs from the fruit than any supplement. Oranges and kefir are a match made in heaven. I reach for this combination during the spring when lots of pollen is in the air. Your body needs lots of vitamin C to help your adrenals handle the stress. Check out this article for more info.
