Before trying the trend, I spoke with Dr. Tara Knott about its safety and validity. “Lemon peels contain fiber, vitamin C, and some minerals. There is a wide range of suggested health benefits from eating lemon peels, but more research is needed,” Dr. Knott told BuzzFeed. “For most people, they are safe to eat, but the euphoric feeling and mood and energy boost are likely a subjective experience.”
Disclaimer: Dr. Knott advised those with certain medical conditions and on specific diets to talk to a doctor before participating in this trend.
