People On TikTok Are Eating Lemon Peels To Feel Euphoric, So I Had To Give It A Try
TikTok made me do it.
I scroll through TikTok a lot, and recently, I've noticed quite a few lemon peels on my For You page.
Specifically, I've seen videos of women encouraging other women to eat lemon peels. According to these videos, eating the peel can lead to feelings of euphoria after about 45 minutes, and it can help open and activate your third eye.
For reference, here are some of the videos I've seen:
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.
