Powerful Antioxidant Hesperidin

Hesperidin is a flavonoid that is found in high concentrations in certain fruits . Flavonoids are largely responsible for the colors of fruits and vegetables, but they aren’t just for those vivid aesthetics. “Hesperidin has been shown in clinical studies to have antioxidant properties, which help protect your cells from oxidative damage that can lead to disease,” says Erwine. “Hesperidin may therefore play a role in heart, bone, brain, liver, and respiratory health and supports a healthy immune system.”


If you’re looking for natural food sources of hesperidin, turn to citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, and everyone's favorite, Sumo Citrus. Best part? All of these happen to be in peak season during the winter months. “The majority of hesperidin is found in the most colorful parts of the fruit, such as the peel,” says Erwine. And good news: Freshly-squeezed orange juice is an excellent source as well. “100-percent citrus fruit juice that is commercially squeezed under high pressure is one of the best sources of hesperidin. The high-pressure juicing is able to excrete hesperidin from the peels.”
