Nadorcott is a high quality, mid to late-maturing Clementine-type of mandarin. It is a fruit with great depth of flavour and sweetness and a good acidity balance. The smooth, deep orange peel is fairly tightly adhering to the segments, but is easily removed.
They’re Rich in Vitamins and Plant Compounds and an excellent source of vitamin-c, a nutrient that strengthens the immune system and keeps your skin smooth and elastic.
In fact, just 2 clementines have all the vitamin C you need in a day
Citrus fruits also have good amounts of other vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function properly, including B vitamins, potassium, phosphorous and copper
Additionally, they are rich in plant compounds that have various health benefits, including antioxidant effects.
These compounds include over 60 varieties of flavonoids, carotenoids and essential oils, and they are responsible for many of their health benefits
Clementines have several health benefits, including improving digestive health and aiding weight loss.
They are particularly high in soluble fiber, the kind of fiber that helps lower cholesterol levels and contain a host of plant compounds, including flavonoids, that may help protect against cancer
Some of these flavonoids act antioxidants and may block the expression of certain genes that are responsible for some degenerative diseases, including cancer
Citrus fruits may also help fight cancer by suppressing cancers, blocking the formation of new cancers and making carcinogens inactive. Citrus fruits have been widely studied for their protective effects on a variety of cancer types.
They Contain Nutrients That Boost Heart Health
In fact, a Japanese study found that people who ate higher amounts of these fruits had lower rates of heart disease and stroke
Their soluble fiber and flavonoids may improve cholesterol levels by raising “good” HDL cholesterol and lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. The compounds can benefit heart health by improving cholesterol levels and lowering blood pressure.
The flavonoids may help ward off neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, which result from the breakdown of cells in the nervous system.
In part, these diseases are caused by inflammation.
Flavonoids found in citrus fruits have anti-inflammatory capabilities that are thought to help protect against the chain of events that causes the nervous system to deteriorate.
