Cedar: Properties and Benefits

The cedar tree, scientific name Citrus Medica, belongs to the Rutaceae family and originates from Persia; cedar, along with the pomelo and the tangerine, is considered one of the three citrus varieties from which all the others derive.

The cedar tree is in the form of shrub and can reach a height of four meters, its flowers are white with a nice smell.

To date, the cedar is cultivated in the Mediterranean region, India, the United States, Brazil, Australia and the Middle East; in Italy citron is grown mainly in Calabria and in the coastal wet by the Tyrrhenian Sea.

There are many varieties of cedar that are divided mainly into two categories: sweet cedar and acid cedar. In Italy the most common variety is made from cedar Smooth Diamond (cedar acid) that is grown in Calabria and is intended, thanks to its properties, mainly for the production of candied fruit.
Cedar: Properties and benefits
The cedar, such as lemon, contains a good amount of vitamin C, flavonoids and a discrete dose of mineral salts, besides obviously, the presence of immediately assimilable sugars such as sucrose, glucose and fructose.

In the essential oil of a particular variety of cedar, the lemon verbena, are present the limonin and citral which are also the two components of the essential oil of lemon.

Benefits and Curative Properties of Cedar

The cedar has many therapeutic properties including that of countering the effects of free radicals and impede water retention; drink lime juice (freshly squeezed, not packaged or bought that is rich in additives) in the morning at breakfast regulates blood pressure.

The good amount of vitamin C present in the cedar has disinfectant properties and antibacterial properties and can also be beneficial to the immune system, making it stronger and more resistant to attack from bacteria.

Recent studies suggest that the properties of the cedar are able to provide benefits in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.

Cedar Curiosity
Better to avoid consuming syrups cedar from industrial production that are readily available in supermarkets and hypermarkets;  they contain chemical additives, colorings and added sugars that are not very healthy.

The cedar tree produces cedar, they are citrus fruits which are not to be confused with the Cedar of Lebanon, which is instead a conifer linked to an important religious significance.

The cedar, rather than for its properties, is known for its wide use in confectionery in the form of candied fruit; is used for the preparation of the Sicilian cassata, Christmas panettone and Easter cakes.

To fight cellulite, as well as the use of the essential oil of cedar for massage, it is helpful to drink a juice of lime in the morning on an empty stomach.

One of the most famous varieties of cedar is represented by the cedar of Corsica, a species known for its sweet-tasting flesh.

The cedar is also used for the production of soft drinks including the famous cedar; but we must say that such beverages, such as syrups, are more the result of "manipulation" chemical rather than the result of the direct treatment of citrus.
Essential oil of Cedar
Essential oil  is obtained from the peel of cedar which, thanks to its properties, is used in cosmetics for the preparation of perfumes and creams; not everyone knows that the essential oil of cedar, when combined with (a few drops) almond oil, can be used to massage the body in the areas most affected by cellulite; in this way it will counter the insurgency.
