Among the fruits and vegetables that make up the Mediterranean diet, a very famous family is that of the citrus fruits (such as lemons, oranges, and grapefruits). They contain many useful natural molecules, among which are the flavonoids.
Flavonoids are class of natural molecules that is abundantly present in the plant kingdom, and in which citrus fruits are particularly rich. Research has shown that they are potentially beneficial to human health, having antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They have also been linked to a reduced risk of chronic diseases, like cardiovascular disease and cancer.
Among these, an interesting molecule is hesperidin, a common citrus fruit flavonoid (primarily found in the peel and white pulp, particularly of oranges and grapefruits) that is known to have antioxidant properties and can have potential benefits for cardiovascular health.
