Tangerines

Like other members of the citrus family, especially the oranges that they most resemble, tangerines are full of vitamin C and a great source of beta-carotene. They also provide potassium, magnesium, and many B vitamins, including B1, B2, B6, folic acid, and pantothenic acid. Tangerines have the highest concentration of pectin, a soluble fiber helpful in reducing cholesterol, among the commonly eaten citrus fruits. They also contain lutein, which may help prevent macular degeneration, and hesperidin, which helps keep blood vessels healthy and has shown potential for fighting osteoporosis.
