Immature Bitter Orange Benefits & Information

Native to Africa, bitter orange is now grown throughout the world.  It is a common food staple used in cooking, such as orange marmalade, as well as in beer and spirts.  Immature bitter orange is also used in many herbal supplements and essential oils.  Immature bitter orange naturally contains the stimulant p-Synephrine.  While structurally similar to ephedrine, a banned substance, p-Synephrine acts differently in the body and is considered safe to use.  However, due to its stimulant properties, immature bitter orange supplements and synephrine are banned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

In traditional Chinese medicine immature bitter orange breaks stagnant Qi, reduces accumulation, transforms phlegm, relieves distension, and is used in Qi tonics.  Studies have found the antifungal properties of bitter orange are beneficial with fungal infections such as jock itch, athletes’ foot, ringworm, and other skin issues when applied topically.  Other health benefits of immature bitter orange include supporting digestive health, easing occasional constipation, may benefit healthy weight management, promotes wound healing, may support healthy blood glucose levels, benefits cardiovascular health, and supports liver health.

The cut form of immature bitter orange can be used to make a decoction, tincture, or tea.  Powdered immature bitter orange is perfect to make your own fresh, filler free, immature bitter orange capsules or compress.
