Benefits & Information of Mature Bitter Orange

Bitter orange, originally a native African fruit, is a common food staple in cooking around the world. Both the immature and mature forms of bitter orange are used for medicinal purposes. Mature bitter orange has a darker orange peel, a slightly sweeter taste, and a milder effect than the immature bitter orange. Due to their synergistic relationship mature bitter orange and immature bitter orange are often used together.

In traditional Chinese medicine mature bitter orange is used to move the qi, soothe the middle energizer and chest, and relieve distention. Mature bitter orange is thought to focus on the health concerns of the chest, stomach, diaphragm, skin, and hair. Mature bitter orange has a less purgative effect than immature bitter orange, allowing for a gentler effect. Mature bitter orange eases congestion and phlegm in the chest to support respiratory health and relieves stagnation in the stomach and intestines to promote digestive health.

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