Don’t Throw the Orange Peel Away [Orange Peel Benefits]
While eating oranges, we usually just peel them and throw the skin away. Although kids squeeze them in each other’s eyes to make one cry as a prank, but that’s wastage too! Orange peel and apple skin are similar since most of the nutrients and benefits are in the skin of these fruits. According to Rebecca Wood, author of The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia, “One medium orange contains over 60 flavonoids and 170 different phytonutrients.” They are good for your skin, your system and your home too. Dr. Jaishree Bhattacharjee, Ayurvedic consultant with Satvikshop helps us find out it's different uses.
