According to her, if you get too carried away with tangerines, you can get a pseudo-allergic reaction, skin rashes that look like allergic ones. Antihistamines will help to cope with itching, and the rash itself will pass if you give up tangerines for a while.
Maslennikova noted that, theoretically, the skin may even turn yellow from the intensive use of tangerines.
“Tangerine contains beta-carotene, which gives the fruit a cheerful orange color. Fortunately, you really need to eat a lot of bright fruits to get yellow disease,” says the specialist.
Maslennikova does not recommend eating tangerines on an empty stomach. According to her, citric and ascorbic acids can increase appetite and exacerbate gastritis or peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum in this case.
Tangerines, when consumed correctly, have a lot of useful properties. These fruits contain C, A, B vitamins and fiber. Besides, one should not neglect the peel and white membrane in tangerine.
“Essential oils in tangerine peel promote good sleep. The flavonoid nobiletin is contained in white membranes of tangerine pulp. It has a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect and protects the body from excess free radicals and prevents oxidative stress,” Maslennikova added.
