Citrus sinensis is a major natural source of vitamin C, along with antioxidants and pectin. Using Orange peel as a supplement may work to strengthen your immune system, aid digestion and lower the risk of food-borne pathogens.


Orange peel is believed to be one of the healthiest natural products due its large amount of vitamin C.  
Organic orange peel is where most of the vitamin C in an orange is located, so if you're eating just the fruit, you're missing out on a lot of it.


Orange peel powder is a great source of pectin, an indigestible carbohydrate that stimulates the growth of probiotic bacteria within the large intestine and helps 

prevent food-borne pathogens. Preparations of organic orange peel have been studied for their potential to prevent indigestion,  lower cholesterol and help in the digestion of fatty foods.

Orange peel is a healthy and easy way to increase overall vitamin C intake, and may help to improve your overall health. 
It is non-irritant to the kidneys and pleasant to take. 
For flavouring, the sweet peel is better, and as a tonic, that of the Seville or Bigaradia is preferred.  A syrup and an elixir are used for flavouring, and a wine as a vehicle for medicines.
The compound wine is too dangerous as an intoxicant, being mixed with absinthium, to be recommended as a tonic.
