Bitter orange and bitter orange oil were used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and in South America to treat constipation, joint pain, and swelling Also known as citrus aurantium, it contains synephrine, a stimulant similar to ephedra. It is controversial as a weight loss supplement due to its potential to increase pulse rates and blood pressure. Also there is little evidence of benefit for weight loss.
