Our body cannot produce this essential vitamin. So,we need to take it from an outside source, through food or supplements. But as we’re all well aware, the food we eat is mostly genetically modified and we can’t be sure if we’re getting enough of this important vitamin.
To avoid this you can make your own supplement of vitamin C at your home.
Homemade vitamin C provides live enzymes, and allows 100% assimilation in your body. Do not bother with dosage labels or FDA approval. All you need for this homemade vitamin C is a citrus peel.
Citrus contains different types of flavonoids, a compound that exhibits antioxidant properties in the human body. Naringin, a powerful antioxidant, is a flavonoid found in the peels of grapefruit, mandarin, and lemons. There are several studies which show that naringin is so powerful that it may reduce radiation-induced damage to cells.
In the other hand there are hesperidin which is another flavonoid. It is concentrated in the white inner layer of oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruits.
Recently studies have indicated that hesperidin can reduces the proliferation of cancer cells, induces programmed cell death, and plays an important role in helping those with hypoglycemia.
