Tangerine-tastic

If you’ve got a high speed blender it’ll cope really well with tangerines so throw a few in your smoothies. 2 tangerines will give you 20% vitamin A, 66% vitamin C, 6% calcium and 2% iron.

Tangerines actually have more antioxidants than oranges – which is great because I always find oranges such a pain to prepare!

Vitamin C is the big player here. It has essential roles like collagen synthesis, wound healing, anti-viral, anti-cancer activity, helps prevent neuro-degenerative diseases, arthritis, and cold/fever…etc. By removing oxidant-free radicals from the body, Vitamin C helps absorb iron from food too.
