Health Notes

Bitter Orange

Bitter Orange
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel
Bitter orange has traditionally been used as a digestive aid.(more)
Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia.(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange contains synephrine, which might promote weight loss. (more)
Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel

Bitter herbs are thought to stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting both stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.1 As a result, they are particularly used when there is low stomach acid but not in heartburn (where too much stomach acid could initially exacerbate the situation). These herbs literally taste bitter. Some examples of bitter herbs include greater celandine, wormwood, gentian,dandelion, blessed thistle, yarrow, devil's claw, bitter orange, bitter melon, juniper, andrographis, prickly ash, and centaury.2. Bitters are generally taken either by mixing 1-3 ml tincture into water and sipping slowly 10-30 minutes before eating, or by making tea, which is also sipped slowly before eating.

Very little published research is available on the traditional uses of bitter orange as a digestive aid and sedative. The German Commission E has approved the use of bitter orange for loss of appetite and dyspeptic ailments.3 One test tube study showed bitter orange to potently inhibit rotavirus (a cause of diarrhea in infants and young children).4 Bitter orange, in an herbal combination formula, reportedly normalized stool function and completely eased intestinal pain in 24 people with non-specific colitis and, again in an herbal combination formula, normalized stool function in another 32 people with constipation.5, 6

Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia. There is no clinical trial data to support its efficacy in this regard. The usual amount of tincture used is 2 to 3 ml at bedtime.1, 2

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAlthough historically used to stimulate appetite, bitter orange is frequently found in modern weight-loss formulas because synephrine is similar to the compound ephedrine, which is known to promote weight loss. In one study of 23 overweight adults, participants taking a daily intake of bitter orange (975 mg) combined with caffeine (525 mg) and St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum, 900 mg) for six weeks lost significantly more body weight and fat than the control group.1 No adverse effects on heart rate or blood pressure were found. Bitter orange standardized to contain 4 to 6% synephrine had an anti-obesity effect in rats. However, the amount used to achieve this effect was accompanied by cardiovascular toxicity and mortality.2

      Comments about Cellucor® C4™ Extreme - Orange:

      I LOVE this product. I have tried about four different brands of pre-workout supplements and this is by far my favorite. I can significantly tell a difference on my runs when I don't take it. At first I wasn't a big fan of how much it makes me tingle but now I feel like it is a reminder that it is working and doing a great job :) The orange flavor is amazing and super easy to drink. The best tasting supplement I've tried so far. Their pink lemonade is good too but a tiny bit sour and seems a little bit more gritty.

        Instead of taking 2 scoops of C4, I mix 1 scoop of C4 with 1 scoop of N.O. Extreme and it gives me INSANE power to push methrough my LONG workouts. I typically work out 5-6 days a week, 3-5 hours a day, and i take this stuff before every workout.

          I bought the orange flavor after reading some pretty good reviews. I am here to tell you that this stuff changed my workouts quite a bit. I started out with half a dose the first day because I am on high blood pressure meds, and didn't want to blow up or something. About 10 minutes into my workout it started to hit me, and I had an awesome workout. I feel really energized and get more reps. I got a little giddy but that was not a bad thing either. I recommend this product 100%.

No jittery feeling like you get from caffeine. the only thing i don't like is the itchy feeling. But I noticed as soon as i start working out that feeling goes away. I take it 30 minutes before my work out.

                      My roommate was the one to introduce me to C4 about 4 months ago and now I use it every time I lift. I was taking C4 for about a month, then left the country and wasn't able to work out so I stopped taking it.

                      During that first month though I was taking 2 scoops and I was pushing out more reps, using more weight, extending my work outs to 2.5 hours/day and still had a steady flow of energy afterwards. The next day, I was nowhere near as sore as I thought I would be. During my time off, I didn't lose any of my size or definition and now that I'm back in it I've continued to see increases in size and performance. I love using this product!
