What Makes Blood Orange Juice Healthy?
Blood oranges contain a potent antioxidant called resveratrol. Resveratrol protects the body from free radical damage. It is responsible for boosting energy, reducing the risk of developing diabetes, preventing cancer, and a bunch of other health benefits. Roasting a blood orange at high temperatures causes the resveratrol in the fruit to release a bio-agonist, which is the term for a substance that acts directly on your cells. The bio-agonist causes an increase in the expression of certain enzymes responsible for energy production.
