Orange peel is often viewed as a discard after the juice has been extracted, but it actually contains numerous health benefits that are worth exploring.
Orange peels contain high levels of dietary fiber, which helps promote bowel regularity and reduces the risk of obesity, colon cancer, and heart disease. They also have anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce swelling and pain in various parts of the body.
Furthermore, their high vitamin C content makes them an effective immune system booster that aids in the prevention of colds, flu, and other infections. The flavonoids contained in orange peels play a critical role in protecting cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
