Imagine a basket full of colors Gemüse und Früchte before: carrots, zucchini, peppers, oranges ... and lemons. Until now, lemon was primarily thought of as a sour to bitter-tasting yellow fruit, but it is now undergoing a major image correction.
A Japanese study took the specific Flavonoid in the lemon under the microscope. Flavonoids are health-promoting substances that are found in over 4000 types of fruit and vegetables and, in addition to a broad spectrum of general health benefits, can also prevent tumor growth.
The lemon flavonoid is called Eriocitrin. In rats given it prior to a training session, the markers went for oxidative stress noticeably back, while post-workout glutathione levels was kept more constant.
That would mean, that Eriocitrin the potentially harmful effects of those generated during training eliminate free radicals and thus can support the health of the cell material. As a result, eriocitrin would be more classic on the list alongside vitamins C, E, lipoic acid and beta-carotene Antioxidant seeing to put.
