Honey Mandarins (available now from Pittman & Davis) may be small, but they have huge flavor!

About the size of a golf ball, these round, orange-colored beauties may resemble the ubiquitous navel orange (and indeed, both fruits are descendants of the mandarin orange), but they have a unique flavor all their own. The honey mandarin boasts a flavor sweeter than other citrus fruits because it’s lower in acid (meaning it’s easier on the stomach) and has a taste reminiscent of spiced honey. Their small sections and honey-sweet flavor are what make honey mandarin oranges a go-to citrus for salads and desserts.

But don’t let its small size fool you…the petite honey mandarin orange may be small, but it packs a powerful punch when it comes to nutrition. And they won’t wreak havoc on your weight loss efforts while you enjoy them, either – in just one honey mandarin, calories don’t exceed 50, making them an ideal snack along with their tastebud-satisfying sweetness!

Honey Mandarins Help Power Your Immune System

This one you’ve probably already guessed. Like most citrus fruits, Honey Mandarins are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants that help fight infection and repel free radicals. The fruit’s anti-microbial properties also serve to hasten healing from wounds and viral infections. A natural blood purifier, honey mandarins help remove toxins, keep your digestive system functioning properly, and help prevent colds and other common winter ailments.

Honey Mandarins May Help Lower Your Cholesterol

Your doctor may have warned you about the health risks associated with high levels of saturated fats and cholesterol in your diet, but it may surprise you to learn that honey mandarin oranges can actually help keep your cholesterol down because they contain flavonoids that actually lower cholesterol. Additionally, honey mandarins produce an extract called synephrine, an antioxidant that works to inhibit cholesterol production in the body. And the same high fiber content of the honey mandarin that helps fill you up also contains hemicellulose and pectin, which help prevent the absorption of cholesterol into the intestines.

Honey Mandarins May Help Reduce Your Risk of Some Cancers

The high vitamin A content in Honey Mandarins serves as a natural protector from cellular damage that can lead to cancer. Studies have shown that high levels of vitamin A are instrumental in preventing liver cancer. Also, the high limonene levels in honey mandarin oranges work to prevent breast cancer, as well as some types of skin cancer.

Honey Mandarins May Help Lower Your Blood Pressure

Here’s one remedy for high blood pressure that doesn’t come with side effects! Honey Mandarins are rich in potassium, a mineral that works to lower your blood pressure. The fruit also has a role in facilitating the flow of blood through the arteries.

Honey Mandarins May Help Keep Your Vision Sharp

The same high levels of vitamin A in Honey Mandarins that help prevent cancer also help to nourish your peepers. Doctors recommend that people who suffer from myopia add Honey Mandarins to their diets to help keep their eyes healthy.

Honey Mandarins May Give You Glowing Skin

Want to stay looking young? Try making Honey Mandarins a regular part of your diet! Vitamin C does more than just boost your immune system…this antioxidant helps protect your skin against UV rays, lessening the damage caused by sunlight and free radicals. A diet high in vitamin C, which is found in the Honey Mandarin, will help keep your skin glowing.

Honey Mandarins May Help Ensure Pregnant Women Have a Healthy Baby

Consuming Honey Mandarin oranges during pregnancy may help the growth of the fetus. Besides containing high vitamin C, mandarin orange also contains bioflavonoid, a compound that strengthens connective tissue and keeps blood vessel walls healthy during pregnancy.

It’s clear that Honey Mandarins are more than just a tasty treat! With so many health benefits (along with a fabulous, refreshing taste), make sure you place your Pittman & Davis order of these coveted fruits for yourself and your loved ones while you can!
