Eating orange peels also provides tremendous benefit. It’s not just the fruit that’s loaded with vitamin C, the rind is too, as well as vitamin A, enzymes, fiber, and pectin. Vitamin C is a fantastic immune system booster that can help fight the symptoms of cold and flu.
Like most fruits, oranges are full of nutrients and enzymes that help our bodies perform better. Orange peels are rich in flavonones, powerful antioxidants that help reduce oxidative damage and fight free radicals. Orange peel is also loaded with natural histamine suppressing compounds. If you have allergies or are close to someone who does, you understand how the sleepiness associated with some antihistamines can be just as disruptive as the histamine reaction itself.
Although the high concentration of histamine reducing compounds in orange rind are effective at providing support for problematic respiratory indications, its benefits extend further. Orange peel provides effective support against respiratory distress. It has a lung cleansing effect by breaking down and helping expel congestion.
