Vitamin C is much more than just “ascorbic acid”. Citrus fruits have rutin, hesperidin, bioflavonoids, monoterpenes and limonene essential oils in their pulp and peel.
- Use organic citrus fruits (grapefruit, tangerines, oranges, lemons, limes)- consuming concentrated pesticides is a BAD idea…
- Cut the peels into thin strips; lay out on cheesecloth with none of the peels touching each other. Let dry for a couple of days. Alternatively dry in a dehydrator.
- Grind in coffee grinder or VitaMix to make a powder. Add to drinks or food. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
- Start slow. If you take too much, you’ll get diarrhea… no one wants that. Use 1/4-1/2 teaspoon max.
