Most often simply discarded, orange peel has quietly demonstrated a great many of uses that sadly go unnoticed. When powdered, it has demonstrated the ability to help improve skin, particularly when used in baths and other such washes. Orange peels have also seen a wide degree of use commercially in house hold cleaners, where they give rise to a great deal of the citrus fragrances that populate the market. Some herbalists have also shown that it is effective when applied to exposed skin in repelling pesky insects, and some have also used it in a puree that is poured into invasive anthills, to prevent ants from accessing the home. Further study has shown that orange peel is also a source of pectin, an indigestible carbohydrate that stimulates the growth of probiotic bacteria in the large intestine. These bacteria help prevent food-borne pathogens. Orange Peel has also been shown to aid in the prevention of indigestion, lower cholesterol, and help in the digestion of fatty foods. It has been studied as an anti-cancer agent, and supplementing with orange peel powder is a healthy way to increase Vitamin C intake, thus improving overall health in regards to the increased immunity to cold and flu that Vitamin C provides, as well as aiding digestion and preventing food-related illnesses.
