Hesperidin is a flavanone glycoside found abundantly in citrus fruits. Its aglycone form is called hesperetin. Its name is derived from the Hesperides nymphs of Greek mythology. Hesperidin is believed to play a role in plant defense. It acts as an antioxidant according to in vitro studies.

Synephrine is the main "active" compound found in the fruit of a plant called citrus aurantium. The fruit citrus aurantium is also known as zhi shi (in traditional Chinese medicine), and as green orange, sour orange and bitter orange in other parts of the world. Synephrine is chemically very similar to the e and pseudo-drine found in many OTC cold/allergy medications and in a number of weight loss and energy supplements which contain Ma Huang.
