How to make your own vitamin C

(The following are news items and opinions. This is not medical advice.)

Any organic orange, lime, 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 then cut the peels 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 they are dry and crisp.

You can also dehydrate the peels with a food dehydrator and then store them for up to a year in a dry container. For consumption, you can 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 blender or some sort of grinder and grind them into a powder (which won’t hurt the enzymes). Throw the powder into your smoothie or fresh juices. 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.
