When the cold arrives, fruits are our allies against the evils of winter ❄️The bitter orange, at the base of our Jardins Suspendus aperitif, is a great weapon to protect against it.Bitter orange is a variety of orange that is rich in vitamins and minerals, making it a health-promoting food. Particularly during the winter, bitter orange can be especially helpful as it contains high amounts of vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps boost the immune system and fight common winter infections, such as colds and influenza. In addition to vitamin C, bitter orange also contains other nutrients important for health, such as vitamin A, calcium and iron. These nutrients help maintain overall good health and prevent many chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease.Bitter orange is also high in fiber, which can help regulate bowel movement and prevent constipation, which is common during winter. It also contains flavonoids, which are antioxidants that help protect the body against harmful free radicals and reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.At Jardins, we love this fruit which, beyond its nutritional benefits, has a taste profile that is both fruity and bitter which gives a nice length in the mouth to Jardins Suspendus, our alcohol-free aperitif inspired by the best Italian bitters.
