Citrus fruits are known to provide powerful antioxidant properties. Plus, the flavonoid contained in peels of tangerines, grapefruits, and lemons has the ability to reduce cell damage induced by radiation.
At first, you will need to buy a few organic citrus fruits. Then, you can eat the fruit and save the peels to make your own dried citrus powder. In fact, follow these instructions and enjoy the benefits of vitamin C.
- Take your peels and spread them onto a dehydrator tray.
- Dehydrate them in your oven at 100ºF for 6-9 hours or until they are dry and crispy.
- Grind the peels in a blender or coarse as you want, it is up to you.
- Put the powder in an airtight container and store it in a cool place.
Once your citrus powder is done, take one rounded teaspoon every day. You can add your homemade vitamin C to smoothies, soups, salads, juices, or raw desserts. For instance, a tablespoon of lemon peel has 2 times more vitamin C and 3 times more fiber than a lemon wedge. You can use your immune-boosting powder any time you want.
Note: Do not add it to hot drinks or foods since, the heat will destroy all the enzymes.
