Why Mandarins are Nature's Best Medicine

Why Mandarins are Nature's Best Medicine

It’s winter, which means we get a brief reprieve from what feels like our six-month-long summer. But it also means that almost everyone gets the flu (or at the very least a runny nose) and takes time off work. Thankfully though, winter is also mandarin season. If mangoes are the King of Fruits, epitomising summer, being good for you and tasting great, then mandarins are their winter Queen.

There’s something especially fitting about only being able to get mandarins in winter. It’s almost like nature is giving us the cure for the downsides of the season – colds and flus – so that we’re only left with the good! Mandarins are full of vitamin C which does a whole lot to strengthen your immune system and increase your white blood cell count, and your body naturally absorbs a lot more of it from fruit than it does from a tablet. And while mandarins are good anywhere, anytime, they’re a particularly good snack for the workplace. The cold and flu season means a whole lot more sick days, less productivity and a higher than average turnover of tissue boxes. Mandarins are easy to eat, unlike their cousin the orange you don’t need a knife – their skin just peels off to become the perfect vessel to put your pips in. Getting employees to eat a mandarin a day is a very easy way to help keep sickness at bay. And they taste great!
