What is Eriocitrin?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, Eriocitrin is a flavanone-7-O-glycoside between the flavanone eriodictyol and the disaccharide rutinose. The flavonoid, Eriocitrin, is a flavanone glycoside. It is found at higher levels in lemon than in all other species of citrus. The principal citrus flavanones are invariably combined with various sugars, especially disaccharides.
Eriocitrin (eriodictyol 7-O-β-rutinoside), a flavonoid glycoside, is the key flavonoid in lemon fruit (citrus limon). Eriocitrin is very elusive and is the most soluble of all flavonoids.
Citrus bioflavonoids are a natural complement to vitamin C and are contained largely in the peels of grapefruits, lemons and oranges. Our Lemon Bioflavonoid contain 50% total bioflavonoids. There are many varieties of bioflavonoids available and ours includes a number of flavonoids, flavones, and flavanones including: Hesperidin, Eriocitrin, Naringen, Naringenin, and Quercetin.
Resource of eriocitrin
Eriocitrin is an ingredient derived from natural products, and it is contained in a juice of citrus fruits such as lemon and lime which have been already eaten in a large amount of several tens of milligrams per 100 ml.
Further, a peel and a squeezed residue are secondary products provided in squeezing a fruit juice. The extraction of an active ingredient by reusing these portions is industrially quite useful, and this is extremely profitable from the aspect of utilizing a waste. Still further, in the industry of the fruit juice, besides the peel and the like, waste liquors such as feeding water and washing water used in that treatment are provided in large amounts, and these can be utilized as eriocitrin solutions.
How Eriocitrin works?
Eriocitrin and its metabolites by intestinal bacteria (eriodictyol, 3,4-dihydroxyhydrocinnamic acid, and phloroglucinol) exhibited stronger antioxidative activity and had approximately the same activity as (-)-epigallocatechin gallate. Eriocitrin and its metabolites are powerful antioxidants using an in vitro oxidation model for heart disease.
Benefits of taking eriocitrin supplement
Good for capillary permeability
A food material having a high concentration of eriocitrin as an antioxidant ingredient derived from citrus fruits can industrially be produced at a low cost. Further, the product is a food material having a high concentration of eriocitrin and having less bitter and rough tastes. Accordingly, when this material is added to beverages or foods, beverages or foods having less unpleasant bitter and rough tastes and having a high antioxidant effect can be obtained. Consequently, foods which help prevent diseases derived from habits of daily life can be provided.

(5) Sweets candy, biscuit, caramel and snack sweet.
Side effects of taking eriocitrin
Eriocitrin, a flavonoid glycoside present in citrus fruit. It is certified that there is no problem with a safety to humans. It is negative in the mutagenicity test according to Rec-assay or Ames assay.
