  1. Liver Cancer

    • The carotenoids that are contained in mandarin oranges, due to the high vitamin A content, have been shown to reduce the risk of liver cancer. According to a study by scientists at the Kyoto Prefuctural University, out of a group of 75 patients with viral hepatitis, the group of 30 people who consumed mandarin orange juice had no liver cancer more than a year later.

    Skin

    • Mandarin oranges are good for the health of the skin. Vitamin C improves the skin both when taken internally and applied topically to the skin. As mandarin oranges are chock full of vitamin C, they make your skin glow. In addition, the antioxidants protect the skin from free radical damage, which leads to aging of the skin.

    Cholesterol

    • Mandarin oranges are good for lowering cholesterol levels. They produce synephrine, located underneath the orange peel, which reduces the body’s production of cholesterol. In addition, the antioxidants in mandarin oranges lower bad cholesterol levels. They fight the free radicals that make cholesterol stick to artery walls.

    High Blood Pressure

    • Mandarin oranges are good for lowering high blood pressure. They contain nutrients such as potassium that work to lower blood pressure. The free radicals in mandarin oranges also keep the blood flow moving through your arteries, which keeps blood pressure from getting high. Antioxidants are responsible for the free radicals contained in mandarin oranges.
