(NaturalNews) Citrus fruits have long had a reputation for high concentrations of healthful nutrients such as vitamin C, and recent research continues to uncover new health benefits from many citrus flavonoids. Although the flavonoids are abundant within the fruit itself, they are found in highest concentration in the peel — which means that unless you're cooking with citrus peel or zest, the best way to get the full antioxidant punch is to eat a bit of the tart, white flesh on the inside of the fruit's peel.
Naringenin has also restored normal levels of triglyceride and cholesterol levels in animal studies, as well as restoring healthy blood sugar levels. There's medicine in your food! So don't throw that medicine away with the peel. Eat it and enjoy the many health benefits offered by Mother Nature.
