Citrus junos, also known as yuzu, is a citrus fruit native to East Asia, particularly Japan, Korea, and China. The peel of Citrus junos, like many other citrus fruits, possesses various health benefits.
Here are some potential health benefits associated with Citrus junos’ peel:
𝐀𝐧𝐭𝐢-𝐢𝐧𝐟𝐥𝐚𝐦𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐲 𝐞𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐬: Certain compounds found in Citrus junos’ peel, such as limonene and hesperidin, have demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties. These compounds may help reduce inflammation in the body, potentially benefiting conditions like arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.
𝐁𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐬𝐮𝐠𝐚𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐠𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: The peel of Citrus junos contains bioactive compounds, such as flavonoids and polymethoxyflavones, that have been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels. These compounds may improve insulin sensitivity, enhance glucose uptake by cells, and inhibit certain enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism, ultimately contributing to better blood sugar control.
𝐀𝐧𝐭𝐢-𝐠𝐥𝐲𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬: Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are formed when sugars react with proteins in the body, leading to tissue damage and complications associated with diabetes. Citrus junos’ peel extracts have demonstrated anti-glycation activity, potentially helping to prevent the formation of AGEs and reducing the risk of diabetic complications.
𝐋𝐢𝐩𝐢𝐝 𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐦: Some studies have indicated that Citrus junos’ peel extracts may have lipid-lowering effects. They may help reduce elevated lipid levels, such as cholesterol and triglycerides, which are commonly associated with diabetes and cardiovascular complications.
