Is eating the inside of an orange peel good for you?
The white part of the orange peel is called the pith. It has some anti-cancer properties & antioxidants & is very good for you. The white pith contains the highest amount of bioflavonoids (an antioxidant), and vitamin C of the whole orange. Also there's some great fiber in it. The white portion of the orange, the lemon and lime contains vitamin C. Lime & lemon taste acidic and sour but when consumed, are Akaline.

Juice a glass of lime or lemon juice.
Make ice cubes out of it. When you have a drink, pop a few of these cubes into your drink for a refreshing taste while enjoying health benefits
