Grapefruit peel (citrus paradisi)Latin Name: citrus paradisi
Common Names: Grapefruit peel
Grapefruit peel is derived from citrus paradisi – the same common grapefruit that you have eaten at breakfast for years. It is not a true herbs, but rather the dried peelings that are commonly discarded as a waste product, used for commercial cattle feed, or converted into ethanol. Despite the fact that powder grapefruit peel is not particularly exotic nor glamorous like some wildcrafted herbs, it is nonetheless a very useful herbal supplement. Like other organic herbs, it can confer many health benefits.
Like its relatives, the orange, lemon, lime and kumquat, cut grapefruit peel is a rich source of Vitamin C and antioxidant nutrients. Using a lemon zester, grapefruit peel can be made into thin strips, cooked in a sugar syrup and made into a unique and actually nutritious form of candy that is not overly sweet and is fine for an after-dinner treat with strong black coffee. Grapefruit peel is also a rich source of pectin, which is used in the making of jams and other fruit preserves. Grapefruit peel derived from the pink and red varieties are particularly rich in the antioxidant known as lycopene, which is also found in tomatoes as well as other types of bulk organic herbs.
Traditional uses of sliced grapefruit peel is similar to those of other natural herbs, and include use for diuretic properties. Get advice from a licensed herbalist or naturopathic doctor before using any such wholesale organic herbs medicinally.
