Naringin is a natural chemical compound known as a bioflavonoid found in grapefruit and other citrus fruits, giving it its bitter flavor. Hence, the food industry uses naringin as a bitter in “tonic” beverages, bitter chocolate, ice cream, and ices.
Naringin also works synergistically with other nutrients, increasing the bio-availability (how much nutrient is absorbed by the body) and therefore maximizing the health benefits of these nutrients.
This bioflavonoid has antioxidant and antifungal properties, as such
may help prevent cancer and atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries), as well as a number of other ailments, such as Herpes, Diabetes, Alcoholism, Heart failure, Chronic venous insufficiency, Bruising.
