Mandarin: Properties and benefits

Mandarin is a fruit with excellent healthy properties. It has purifying and digestive properties. Its high water content (82% of its weight) gives it hydrating properties. The water-soluble fibers in which it is particularly rich make it very useful for promoting intestinal transit and for combating constipation (even in the most stubborn forms). Its high vitamin C content makes it an excellent ally of our immune system. It also boasts a very strong antioxidant action thanks to the presence of vitamin A and vitamin E. It is also very rich in mineral salts (Phosphorus, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, etc.) which make it an excellent remineralizer and tonic for our body. It also contains Naringenin. A substance with proven anti-inflammatory properties. It is therefore very useful in all those cases in which inflammatory states of any nature are found in the organs of our body. It is the only “sweet” citrus fruit (it is not part of the acidic fruit like orange and lemon) and therefore does not have the well-known contraindications for those suffering from gastritis or similar problems. It can be consumed raw or in the form of juice. Preferably, like Tutti Frutti, away from main meals.
