Orange Peel Tea Has Been Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for Thousands of Years

Orange peel tea has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine to heal lots of different ailments and to keep a person healthy.

It’s full of Vitamin C, contains lots of pectins to lower cholesterol, it’s a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, lowers blood pressure, helps with insulin resistance, boosts up our immune system, and heals lots of health challenges.

Vitamin C is beneficial for the eyes and cardiovascular system, and it may help prevent certain cancers. Orange peel contains more Vitamin C than the orange itself… almost twice the Vitamin C.

Dried orange peel is also a source of potassium, a mineral that helps regulate muscles and blood pressure. Potassium also helps convert blood sugar into glycogen, which is stored in muscle tissue and converted into energy.

The pericarp, the white membrane of the orange peel, is a source of pectin, a soluble dietary fiber with a variety of health benefits. Pectin, which is associated with lower cholesterol, improves insulin resistance, regulates gastrointestinal problems, promotes immune system health and increases satiety.
