The humble turmeric is a spice which acts against free radicals. The turmeric contains more than 300 antioxidants. Antioxidants are the primary “weapon” to prevent the growth and regulation of free radicals, an underlying cause of ageing and many serious diseases.

Ginger provides antioxidants and also has protective properties. Lime and orange are rich in vitamin C which shields the body against infections, whilst the carrots are rich in beta-carotene which is then converted into vitamin A.

Researchers from the University of Milan believe that the pigment anthocyanin, which gives red oranges particular bloody color, actually helps us to lose weight.
