What are Flavanones and Why Should You Care?
The plant nutrients called flavanones are found in citrus fruit, including oranges, grapefruit, lemons and limes. They have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and may also help you manage your weight and cholesterol.
Flavanones are a sub-group of flavonoids and including more in your diet is a great way to help your body stay healthy. They may also potentially decrease your risk of some chronic health conditions. Research has shown that certain flavonoids help stop cancer cells from multiplying and that alone is a great reason to regularly include citrus in our diets.
Warmer weather causes us to crave the lighter and livelier flavours of citrus fruits. Add fresh squeezed juices to your water kefir and keep the flavour profile sweet, tart and perfect for the sunny days ahead.
