Hesperidin was first isolated in 1828 by French chemist Lebreton from the white inner layer of citrus peels (mesocarp, albedo).

Hesperidin is a flavonoid that can be found in the rind of citrus fruits. Flavonoids are polyphenols that are important to human health and have antioxidant properties. They are responsible for providing color and flavor to citrus fruits. Hesperidin is also often sold in the form of health products, which has the effect of repairing and preventing cardiovascular diseases.
Hesperidin is sometimes called bioflavonoids or vitamin P. Although there are pure extracts, most of them are in the form of multivitamins. Citrus fruits contain a lot of this ingredient, so you can eat these fruits to get the nutrients you need.
Flavonoids and vitamins are important to everyone. Hesperidin is most easily found in foods rich in vitamin C, and it is a very important component for vitamin C absorption. Vitamin C is composed of molecular chains, and flavonoids can end this chain and make this vitamin more soluble in water and absorbed by the body. People who have problems with vitamin absorption can usually take hesperidin supplements to reap the benefits.
