The Beauty of Blood Orange

Blood Orange

Blood oranges are grown in the volcanic atmosphere of Mount Etna in Sicily, and like all citrus fruits, blood oranges contain vitamin C. These citrus fruits have antioxidant properties, due to the presence of anthocyanins. Antioxidants help to protect cells from potential free radical damage which can be influenced by environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution.
