Oranges and Kefir ~ 🍊
Consuming vitamin C supplements does not provide the same protective benefits as drinking orange juice, according to 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 such as 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.
