Clementine Health Benefits

Clementine is a citrus fruit belonging to the family of mandarin oranges. It is also known as seedless tangerines and Christmas oranges originally come from Spain. Clementines are smaller than an orange and have a much thinner flesh that is a deeper orange colour.

 

Clementines help you a lot with the task of shedding extra pounds as they contain very low quantities of fats and calories. Furthermore, thanks to being succulent, they suffice the stomach when you are hungry, thus helping you to quickly reduce excessive weight.

 

Clementines are also highly beneficial for the human skin, the clementine contains high amount of citric acid and vitamin C; hence it helps in eliminating blemish-causing bacteria and boosts the production of collagen, thus rendering you a crystal-clear, healthy skin.

 

Clementines also contain 22 milligrams of calcium, which is necessary for muscle contraction and bone growth. While this is only a small percentage of the RDA for both children (500 milligrams) and adults (1000 to 1300 milligrams), it is a vital mineral, and eating a clementine can help you reach your RDA of calcium.

 

Clementines are a good source of fiber and potassium. Fiber creates bulk in your intestines so you digest your food properly and get rid of waste regularly.

 

Because fiber slows digestion, your body has more time to absorb the vitamins and minerals from food.

 

One clementine has 1.3 grams of fiber. Potassium is a mineral that keeps your digestive system working the way it’s supposed to.

 

The mineral makes it easier for your intestines to contract and relax so food and waste can move through them normally.

 

A clementine contains 131 milligrams of potassium. Clementines are often consumed by eating them with salads, individually, or in healthy, low-calorie recipes.

 

They contain many health benefits for someone who is dieting. When counting calories, clementines are one of the lowest calorie fruits that you can find on the market.
