 The aim of this research was to see how citrus extract (CE) affected piglet plasma free amino acids, intestinal morphology and enzyme function, as well as fecal nitrogen and  phosphorus emissions. CE increased alkaline phosphatase and lipase activity in the duodenum, as  well as alkaline phosphatase and trypsin activity in the jejunum. CE increased nitrogen  absorption and consumption, intestinal anatomy, and digestive enzyme activity, to mention a few  items. Weaning stress may cause piglets to underperform in terms of development. Citrus extract  has potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help animals live longer. The  aim of this research was to see whether citrus extract could be used instead of antibiotics in piglet diets. Multiple segments of society will profit by finding an antibiotic substitute that  decreases both antibiotic usage and nitrogen emissions, increases animal development, supports  farms economically, and reduces pollution. 344r  

Citrus Fruits as a Treasure Trove of Active Natural Metabolites that Potentially Provide  Benefits for Human Health

 Citrus fruits, which are grown all over the world, have been identified as some of the  most energy-dense, nutrient-dense, and health-promoting fruits. Even so, in many Asian nations,  a variety of these fruits have been used as common medicinal herbs to treat diseases. In recent  decades, several experiments have centered on Citrus secondary metabolites and bioactivities  with the aim of developing new chemotherapeutic or complementary medicine. These properties  include anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties, as well as cardiovascular  and neuroprotective properties. This review summarizes Citrus fruits’ global distribution and  taxonomy, as well as various secondary metabolites and bioactivities, as a starting point for  further research. The primary focus is on flavonoids, which are bioactive metabolites found in  citrus fruits. In living organisms, reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as superoxide anion,  hydroxyl radicals, and hydrogen peroxide are chemically extracted from oxygen via a variety of  metabolism mechanisms, whereas the anti-oxidant mechanism is able to protect against them to  maintain equilibrium.

Top 17 Citrus Fruits and Their Health Benefits Rachael Link, MS, RD 

 Citrus fruits are recognized for their unique aroma and taste. Citrus fruits, in addition to  adding a tangy flavor to dishes and desserts, are also high in vitamins, nutrients, and  antioxidants. According to new findings, these citrusy superfoods can have a wide variety of  health benefits. There are several causes to use more citrus fruits in your everyday routine, ranging from cancer prevention to kidney stone prevention. Citrus fruits are normally rich in fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants, though the precise nutritional profile changes. Antioxidants,  which are protective compounds that fight oxidative stress and protect cells from injury, are  present in citrus fruits. Using more citrus fruits to the diet has been attributed to a reduced risk of  some forms of cancer in several trials. Citrus fruit consumption has also been linked to a reduced  risk of lung, liver, breast, and pancreatic cancers in other studies. Citrus fruits are low in calories  but high in fiber, making them an excellent substitute for weight loss. These fruits have been  shown in studies to improve digestive health, brain control, weight loss, cancer cell recovery,  kidney stone prevention, and heart health. However, if taken in large quantities, they can cause  cavities, and certain varieties can conflict with some medications.
