Tangerine is a practical, tasty and healthy fruit that provides many nutritional benefits. One mandarin weighing about 110 grams contains 32 milligrams of vitamin C, which is half the recommended daily allowance.
Vitamin C plays an important role in the synthesis of collagen and elastin in our body. Collagen and elastin are proteins that form our skin, muscles and other connective tissues. This vitamin is a powerful antioxidant and helps the body in removing free radicals that threaten the healthy cells.
You can eat tangerine as an between meals snack, but you also have to try it as an smoothie.
