Mandarins are a delicious and healthy way to do this, whether you’re after a tasty snack to have on the go or want to enhance your go-to salad with some citrus flavour!
Mandarins are a great, tasty, low-calorie winter fruit, packed with plenty of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals to keep you and your family healthy during the cooler months.
Read on to find out more about the many benefits of mandarins and why you need to stock up on them at your local A Better Choice store today.
They are packed with nutrients!
Mandarins contain Vitamins A, B, and a high level of Vitamin C which is great for preventing infections, removing free radicals, and supporting skin health. The Vitamin C found in mandarins works to stop colds and keep your immune system functioning properly so you can fight off any nasty bugs that come your way!
They help flush out toxins
Mandarins are a great way to flush out toxins from your body and keep things moving in your digestive system as they are a key source of fibre! This helps to also lower your cholesterol and keep your blood sugar balanced by slowing food absorption.
They strengthen your bones
Are you looking for ways to strengthen your bones? Mandarins are a great option as they contain calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium to help build bone strength, create new bone, and fight osteoporosis. This is particularly important for those of us over 40!
They are so versatile
While mandarins are an ideal low effort snack, they can also be added to many of your favourite meals for a savory or sweet twist. Some of our favourites include these Mandarin & Chicken Rice Paper Rolls, this Mandarin Daiquiri and these Salted Choc-Dipped Mandarins.
Enjoy all these many benefits of this yummy winter fruit by heading into your local A Better Choice retailer to pick up a bunch of them today.
