Give Your Skin a Vitamin C Boost
A single cup of mandarin oranges delivers over 107 percent of the RDA of vitamin C and 50 percent of the RDA of vitamin A. Plus, it’s loaded with zinc, calcium, copper, magnesium, and iron, and has just 71 calories.
Vitamin C is best known for its immune-boosting properties. However, it does a lot more than just keep your immune system strong. This nutrient protects against brain damage, improves cognitive function, and lifts your mood. In a study, it has been shown to reduce mood disturbances by up to 35 percent.
Nobiletin, a powerful flavonoid in mandarin oranges, may help prevent atherosclerosis and reverse its symptoms. Other studies have found that subjects who consumed these fruits regularly had a lower risk of liver cancer, liver disease, and insulin resistance.
Tangerin, a phytochemical that occurs naturally in mandarins and tangerines, may inhibit tumor growth and protect against DNA damage. These fruits also contain the beauty flavonoid hesperidin that slows down aging and boosts collagen production. Over time, these nutrients can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and offset the harmful effects of stress and free radical damage on your skin.
Due to their high water content, both cucumbers and mandarins nourish your skin and prevent dehydration. Plus, they are rich in fiber and low in calories, making them ideal for dieters.
