What looks like orange, tastes like orange but is arguably better than orange? Clementine.

Our clementine is a fruit—a hybrid to be exact. It is a cross between two types of oranges, sweet and mandarin. It is famous for being seedless (usually) and very convenient to peel. But most of all, it provides several good benefits for the body.

Want some ideas? I’ll give you two:

It’s rich in vitamin C.

Scurvy refers to vitamin C deficiency. Today scurvy is very rare, but that doesn’t mean you should stop eating fruits that are rich in vitamin C. Otherwise, you can still develop problems in relation to collagen, a fiber that provides support for your body.

As you grow older, the production of collagen goes down. That explains why you develop wrinkles. But as the most abundant type of protein in the body, collagen is also responsible for the protection and preservation of the teeth’s dentin, gut, cartilages, and even blood vessels. Simply put, if you don’t have enough vitamin C, you can also putting these parts of the body at risk.

But how much vitamin C does clementine contain? A single fruit of clementine may already provide as much as half of what a woman needs in a day.

It encourages weight loss and proper digestion.

Do you feel uneasy around your tummy? Do you feel as if you’re bloated or you’re passing out gas? Don’t take these things for granted, as they may tell you that you have digestive issues. The gut has hundreds of bacteria that have their respective roles. However, sometimes your gut gets oh so chaotic that you experience gastrointestinal symptoms, and these things can happen when you have wastes building up.

Clementine, on the other hand, is high in fiber, which works like your body’s sweeper and moves the wastes until you can expel them from the body. Moreover, since they help slow down the digestion process, your body has a better capability to absorb the nutrients from the food.
