Good fruit from the world.
Mandarins, like all citrus fruits, are rich in antioxidants that prevent infections and strengthen the immune system. Compared to other fruits of the rutaceae family, however, the tangerine has a higher concentration of flavonoids, among which is nobiletin, which helps lower blood glucose and cholesterol levels. Among the mandarin’s vitamins, the one most heavily represented is vitamin C, which is concentrated in the peel and especially in the ‘albedo’, the skin we usually remove when peeling the fruit. Vitamin C, as is well known, has many therapeutic virtues: it promotes the synthesis of collagen, a protein that protects the skin, tendons and gums, is essential in the prevention of infections and speeds up wound healing. It is also useful for those who are convalescent and have taken antibiotics or antipyretics and for those who use cortisone or oral contraceptives. Lastly, vitamin C is indispensable, especially at the beginning of the year to prevent fevers and flu, and a couple of mandarins a day are a great help in combating the ailments of the big cold as much as possible. In mandarins, there is no lack of B vitamins (niacin, thiamine, vitamin B6) and mineral salts (iron, copper, calcium, manganese and especially potassium, which rehydrates and stimulates diuresis), folic acid (prevents osteoporosis) and fibre, which acts as a natural laxative.
