Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, no-one really knows for sure- how the future is gonna break for them! You guys can do what you’d like with this Tangerine “information”- all I can tell you is that it makes a whole lot of sense to me!

* Drink Tangerine Juice.

One of Jeff Eats’ favorite “drinks” is fresh squeezed tangerine juice.

Take a look at the below-article -Health Benefits of Tangerine Juice ( already knew the stuff was really good for me, but didn’t know that it was REALLY THAT GOOD for me!

Now, with tangerine season (November-April) nearing…Jeff Eats was thinking- just maybe, it wouldn’t hurt for you guys to plan on drinking an 8oz glass a day, could it? Just so we are straight, I got a “D” in junior high school biology- so if you go into diabetic shock or some other “shock” drinking this stuff- don’t-be suing Jeff Eats based on the claim that I’m some kind of a science/health expert!

By the way, Jeff Eats doesn’t “do” PASTEURIZED fresh squeezed tangerine juice…there are plenty of south Florida markets that have unpasteurized fresh squeezed tangerine juice. The reasons- 1. unpasteurized juice tastes better than the tinkered stuff- does, 2. pasteurizing cooks many of the nutrients out of the juice. Just so you know, don’t waste your time “looking” in Publix- EVERY juice it stocks is pasteurized…I usually catch mine at The Boys Farmers Market (Delray Beach) or Whole Foods Market.

One final thought, if you haven’t got time to go “chasing” around looking for unpasteurized fresh squeezed tangerine juice–you can always just buy some tangerines at your local supermarket and do whatever you want with them…

Health Benefits of Tangerine Juice.

Aside from being sweet and flavorful, tangerine juice has many benefits for your health. In terms of nutritional value and disease-fighting properties, tangerine juice has several advantages over orange juice. From protecting you from diseases and cancer to keeping you fuller longer, this juice has a health benefit for nearly everyone.

Nutritional Value – The Source Of The Health Benefits Of Tangerine Juice
Tangerine juice has all of the tangy flavor of orange juice but with added nutrition. This juice is an excellent source of many antioxidants, such as hesperetin, xanthins, lutein, beta-carotene, and narigenin. Anti-oxidants eliminate free radicals that can cause cancer, as well as fight aging. The anti-oxidant beta cryptoxanthin may reduce inflammation from arthritis. Lutein protects the eyes and helps you keep your eyesight sharp. The flavenoid tangeretin is a powerful agent that has been shown in studies to prevent skin cancer and helps stop the spread of breast-cancer cells. The flavonoids tangeretin and nobiletin have blood thinning and anti-inflammatory properties, which may reduce your risk of heart attacks.

Additionally, tangerine juice is chock-full of vitamin C, which boosts your immunity. Consuming adequate amounts of vitamin C helps your body fight infections from the common cold to the flu. In addition to helping increase your immune function, vitamin C helps your body absorb iron, and helps boost wound healing.

Tangerine juice contains folic acid and potassium, and it is also an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which promotes regularity. Being regular has been proven to reduce your risk for developing some forms of cancer, such as colon cancer. The fiber also helps prevent your body from absorbing cholesterol. Fiber whisks some of the cholesterol content from your food out of your system, which can lower your blood levels of LDL, or “bad” cholesterol.

One serving of tangerine juice provides 20-percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A. This is 10-times as much vitamin A as orange juice. Vitamin A is instrumental in protecting your eyesight, promoting immune function and bone and tissue health. The vitamin A in tangerine juice may also stimulate cell growth and cell division.

Antiseptic Properties
Tangerines have natural germ-fighting properties. Tangerine juice may help your body defend itself against an infection from the staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Staphylococcus aureus is highly contagious and causes painful lesions and boils on the skin, particularly on the face or in other tender areas such as the groin or the armpits.

In addition to fighting harmful bacteria, the pectin in tangerine juice has been proven to help increase the number of beneficial bacteria in your intestines. These bacteria improve digestion and increases your body’s ability to defend against harmful bacteria which can cause inflammation and intestinal disorders. When harmful bacteria enter the gut, beneficial bacteria help usher the bad bacteria out of your system before they can cause an infection.

Diet Support
Tangerine juice is an excellent way to start your day if you are dieting. The fiber and carbohydrates in the juice help keep you feeling full, which will prevent over-indulgence later on. Additionally, the sweet finish of the tangerine flavor can help prevent the cravings for sugar that can derail a diet.

Starting your day with tangerine juice is a tasty and healthy way to boost your immunity, bolster your digestive and tissue health and protect your body against the ravages of cancer. Tangerine juice is powerful enough to do all of those things, yet it is so tangy-sweet and flavorful that you will forget all about its many health benefits and simply enjoy the flavor.

7 Comments to “Drink Tangerine Juice”

    This is a very worthwhile article. I read it years ago and have been drinking fresh tangerine juice daily.

  2. Henry Klein says...

    Very good advice.
    I’ve been drinking tangerine juice on an every day basis for over 20 years and I can honestly tell you that I’ve had maybe 20 colds in all those years. I really think that the daily 8oz glass of tangerine juice has something to do with that pretty good record.

  3. Robin Weissman says...

    Read the story.
    Just bought 6 pints of fresh squeezed juice at The Boys Market in Delray Beach. $3.49 a pint.
    The article makes a whole lot of sense to me.

  4. Nancy Feinman says...

    It’s not that easy to find fresh juice. I checked Whole Food and they didn’t have it. Decided best way was to squeeze my own.

  5. Nathan G says...

    Long time reader.

    Your tangerine recommendation makes a load of sense.

    I have been drinking tangerine juice regularly for over 25 years. I try to average 8 oz a day and I have been pretty healthy the whole way. Other than for cataract surgery 14 years ago, so far so good and I’m 81 years old.

  6. Joe Pistone says...

    I have been a tangerine “follower” for over 35 years.
    Years ago (I’m 76) my internist told me that 8 oz of tangerine juice a day would be a big boost to a healthy life. Not sure why, but in the past 35 years other than for cataract surgery on both eyes and a right eye torn retina problem literally I’ve had no real health issues. For sure, I know that I haven’t had too many colds during that period.
    I would recommend that your readers check with their doctors and see what they think of this tangerine philosophy. They should also search the internet and read some of the numerous articles that cover the subject.

    Tangerine Juice

    There is good indication that tangerines may help prevent heart attacks.
    Tangerines are in the mandarin family. Satsuma, Kinnow and the popular Clementine are sister fruits, and all are delicious and an excellent lunch-box delight. They’re easy to peel, wonderfully sweet and highly nutritious. People who have a difficult time digesting oranges can find tangerines more agreeable.

    Tangerine Juice Nutrition
    A small tangerine can have more usable vitamin C than a large orange. They’re also a good source of folate, potassium, vitamin A, and fiber when eaten.
    Nutrition Facts
    Tangerine Juice is an excellent source of:
    Vitamin C
    Tangerine Juice is a good source of:
    Folate Acid
    Fibre (when eaten)
    Vitamin A (beta-carotene)
    Phytochemicals & Antioxidants in Tangerine Juice
    Tangerines are a good source of beta cryptoxanthin, which has been shown to reduce the inflammation that is caused by arthritis. They also provide a generous supply of eye-protecting lutein. Two additional flavonoids found in tangerines are tangeretin and nobiletin. Research done at the University of Western Ontario has found that tangeretin is 36 times more powerful than hesperestin at halting the proliferation of breast-cancer and skin-cancer cells. The flavonoid nobiletin has been shown to be almost as strong. Both of these flavonoids can also function as blood thinners and anti-inflammatories, so when you add a liberal supply of vitamin C, there is good indication that tangerines may help prevent heart attacks.
    Make the Ultimate Tangerine Juice
    Preparing for Juicing
    Dubbed the “zipper fruit” because they almost fall out of their peel, tangerines are the perfect size to drop into any juicer hopper, seeds and all.
    I have spent over twenty years juicing thousands of pounds of produce and tried just about ever juicer on the market. I can confidently say that our Juice Nut Top Pick Juicers are the very best in workmanship, warranty, juice yield and juice quality. I’m nuts about these juicers!

    Tangerine Juice Tips
    Pure fresh tangerine juice can be quite expensive to make, that’s why I always mix them with oranges. Sometimes you will find that when you get home, your choice of oranges was less than good. The dead giveaway is the dull color when cut open, which promises a bland taste. The remedy is to throw a few juicy tangerines into the mix. Their lively taste can breathe new life into a tired orange.
    Picking Perfect Produce
    Tangerines are seasonal and can be found from November through February. They often come in small wooden crates covered in a plastic orange colored mesh, which can hide less then healthy fruit underneath. Peek under the mesh and look for well-colored fruit free of soft spots and mold.
    Storing Your Produce
    Can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator and are best eaten within a week.
    Taste Combos
    The unique taste of tangerine mixes well with all citrus fruits, especially oranges.
