According to a nutritionist and nutritionist Nadezhda Tsapkina, the fiber contained in this fruit helps to normalize the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. Tangerines can be both harmful and useful.
She noted that tangerines are an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, and vitamins D, K, and B. The fiber contained in this fruit helps to normalize the gastrointestinal tract, and vitamin C strengthens the immune system.
“In combination with phytoncides and essential oils, citrus fruits help fight viruses. The presence of bioflavonoids and the antioxidant beta-carotene prevents the formation of cancer,” says Tsapkina.
The expert noted that frequent consumption of tangerines can lead to liver problems, as the fructose rate per day is no more than 40 grams. Tsapkina recommends eating no more than four to five tangerines a day.
“But we shouldn’t forget about a possible allergic reaction. People suffering from gastritis should also be careful, as tangerines can irritate the intestinal and stomach mucosa,” the nutritionist said.
