The outer red skin of apples have anti-carcinogenic properties. Potato skin contains loads of vitamins apart form potassium, iron and zinc. The skin of kiwi fruit is rich in antioxidants. Orange peel has d-limonene that has the ability to lower blood cholesterol and also shields our skin from harmful ultraviolet radiation. Banana skin is good for the eyes and also has invigorating properties. The skin of garlic has some valuable elements vital for the happy functioning of heart. So forget your peeler the next time you start cooking.
