Product No. P03321

Citrus Aurantium’s natural habitat is India and China, but it is cultivated throughout the Mediterranean.

Citrus aurantium is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, and both flower and peel contain flavonoids - potentially health-promoting compounds that give the plant its vibrant colour - alkaloids, and carotenoids. Synephrine, tyramine, octopamine, hordenine and n-methyltyramine are present in the fruits, and these constituents, especially the active ingredient synephrine, act as a mild stimulant that boosts the metabolic rate, expends calories, and increases energy. 

Bitter orange is perhaps most known for the volatile oil in the peel, which gives bitter orange its strong odour and flavour.
