Bitter Orange

Bitter orange (Citrus aurantium) is native to Asia but grows throughout other tropical regions. The medicinal part of the bitter orange is the peel, the flowers, the oil and the seeds. Bitter orange contains high levels of flavonoids, synephrine, octopamine, and tyramine. Bitter orange is often used for support for weight control.

There is some evidence the bitter orange can cause vasoconstriction and increased blood pressure so people with high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and migraines must exercise extreme caution when using bitter orange. Bitter orange functions as a stimulant much like caffeine and caution should be used for anything aggravated by such stimulants.
