Bitter orange has alkaloids that help us burn fat!

The bitter or sour orange is a hybrid created from the mixture of two orange trees. It is a fruit well known for its characteristic perfume, for its intense flavor and for its medicinal properties.

It is widely used in the manufacture of perfumes and essential oils are also made from it. But what has made it better known is its inclusion in diets as it helps regulate appetite and lose weight.

However, like everything, it must be consumed conscientiously, consulting a specialist beforehand, since taken in excess can cause hypertension or raise the heart rate, which can be quite harmful. These effects are due to a compound in sour orange called synephrine that is responsible for helping us lose weight, but which at the same time is responsible for generating these side effects.

  • Sour orange stimulates the metabolism. That is why it is so used in diets, and also provides a lot of satiety.
  • This fruit is very rich in slimming alkaloids. One of them is synephrine, named above, which is a natural stimulant, with lipolytic effects, which means that it has the ability to burn fat, thus helping us lose weight.
