Health Benefits of Citrus Fruits and Juicing: Part 1

Benefits of Citrus FruitsCitrus fruits have long been known to be a valuable part of healthy diets across the continents. To prevent scurvy during the 19th century, British sailors were issued a daily allowance of citrus, such as lemon, and later switched to lime.

Benefits of Citrus Fruits: Essential Nutrients

Citrus fruits are an excellent source of vitamin C, but they are more than that. Citrus fruits contain other essential nutrients that are good for us. In addition to vitamin C they contain both glycaemic and non-glycaemic carbohydrate (sugars and fibre), potassium, folate, calcium, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and a variety of phytochemicals.

Add a fruit to your juices such as a lemon or lime to boost the flavor and add essential nutrients. I peel my citrus fruits before juicing, you may choose to leave all or some of the peel on (lemon and lime).

Benefits of Citrus Fruits: Energy

The main energy-yielding nutrient in citrus is carbohydrate; citrus contains the simple carbohydrates (sugars) fructose, glucose and sucrose, as well as citric acid which can also provide a small amount of energy.

Be careful how much citrus fruit you juice however. That boost in energy may feel great, but the blood sugar spikes aren’t good for the body. Be especially careful if you’re diabetic.

Benefits of Citrus Fruits: The Big C

Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients, experts say. It may not be the cure for the common cold (though it’s thought to help prevent more serious complications). But the benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling.

I love getting my vitamin C from juice rather than a vitamin supplement. Vitamin supplements just aren’t the same.

Thank you again for reading and let me know what benefits you get from citrus fruits. Best wishes and happy juicing!

Part 2 coming soon.

Trivia: Did you know pineapple is not a citrus fruit? Citrus fruits belong to the family Rutaceae. The Pineapple belong to the family Bromeliaceae. One of the main differences between the two is that citrus trees bear fruit from their branches, while pineapple fruit is the stem of the plant.

Note: If you’re diabetic, have a serious medical condition or take medication please check with your healthcare professional. Oranges have a lot of sugar in the juice and grapefruit juice doesn’t mix with some medications. It only takes a phone call to check.

  22. We all know that Vitamin C plays a rather critical role in how our body makes collagen (connective tissue). Furthermore, it is a catalyst, a molecule that helps chemical reactions occur with less time and effort. That’s why this is commonly used by most mom out there to their children. Undeniably, many people don’t pay so much attention with citrus fruits, haven’t seen how essential it is in our body. Personally, when I had so much time, I made caipirinha for myself, this alcoholic drink (not hard) is rich in Vitamin C that prevent scurvy which we need.

I still use apples and all the various berries, but it’s just not the same. I really like the fact that you have included a warning for diabetics, many would not bother.
