How To Make Vitamin C From Citrus Peels


You can buy vitamin C powder in pharmacies up and down the country – often costing $10 and upwards. When you buy vitamin C powder, you are often buying a “dead” product since many of the powders contain inactive enzymes.

Save yourself some money and make your own vitamin C powder with live enzymes by following these simple steps…

How To Make Vitamin C From Citrus Peels

  1. Assemble a variety of citrus fruits – e.g. lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines and grapefruits. It is important that the fruit is organic as you don’t want to be eating peels sprayed with nasty chemicals.
  2. Wash the fruit (perhaps using this homemade produce wash
    ) and peel off the skin.
  3. Cut the peels into small thin squares, place on a cloth and put by the window in full sunlight.
  4. Allow the peels to dry and shrivel for a few days.
  5. Once dried, use a coffee grinder or similar device and turn your peels into a powder. Store in an airtight container.
