What homemade vitamin C does have is live enzymes that allow the vitamin C to be 100% assimilated into your body. It has its own natural source of rutin, hesperidin, and bioflavonoids. It’s easily acquired, easy to make, and even tastes good, too. It’s just orange & lemon peels.
*Any organic orange or lemon peels left over from the fruit you buy will do the trick.
*Save all of your peels after you eat the inside of the fruit and cut them into thin strips.
*Place them on a plate on your dining room table and let them dry at room temperature for a couple of days until dry and crisp.
*You can also dehydrate the peels with a food dehydrator and then store them for about a year in a dry container.
*For consumption, one idea is to break up peels into smaller pieces and mix them with your favorite tea. This makes the tea taste great, but the downside to this approach is that heat destroys the enzymes.
A better option is to place the peel strips into your coffee grinder and grind them into a powder (which won’t hurt the enzymes) and use to mix with your early morning smoothie. One rounded teaspoon will supply you with more organic vitamin C complex, rutin, hesperidin, and bioflavonoids than your body needs for the day, regardless of your size. And this homemade citrus peel powder mixed in your blender with some fresh organic apple juice tastes good too.
