Mandarin, peel

Powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substances that protect the health of the body and the brain
The mandarin, citrus reticulata, is a juicy, scented and very yummy fruit, it is also very healthy. But the properties of the mandarin aren’t limited to the pulp, in fact also the peel of mandarin is arousing plenty of interest thanks to several scientific researches that are studying its benefits. In particular, researchers of the Leicester School of Pharmacy have observed that mandarin peel contains a substance, called Salvestrol Q40, which the plant produces to defend itself from external attacks such as insects and fungi. This same substance also has an anti-tumor action for humans since, thanks to an enzyme that is mainly found in diseased cells, it is converted into a toxic substance for the cell itself (Hoon Tan, British Pharmaceutical Conference, Manchester , 2007). Moreover, the mandarin skin is a source of precious flavonoids, that are antioxidants, such as tangeretin and nobiletine able to act on brain tumors by limiting the ability to proliferate and by causing death by apoptosis (Taraphdar et al, Curr Sci, 2001 - Rooprai et al. al, Neuropathol Appl Neurobiol, Feb 2001). Finally, the anti-inflammatory action of some substances of the mandarin peel, such as hesperidin, tangeritine and nobiletine, help to fight chronic inflammations of the body and prevent diseases such as Alzheimer's (Ho et al, Food Chem Toxicol, Sep 2014). So the next time you eat a mandarin do not throw away its peel but slice it finely and add it to salads, vegetables, yogurt or herbal teas. Excellent is also the water flavored with mandarin peel, add the peels of this incredible citrus to a jug of water and keep it in the fridge for a few hours, then enjoy it! For all these uses of mandarin peel, however, make sure to use just organic fruit, rinse the mandarin well and clean it well, even using a brush.
