* Drink Tangerine Juice.

This article originally appeared on October 13, 2014. Do Jeff Eats a big favor and give-it-a-read! 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 (juicebenefits.com)-I 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.

    Jeff,
    This is a very informative article.
    I didn’t know that Tangerine Juice was so much better than Oranage Juice.
    My wife and I are going to start drinking Tangerine Juice every day.
    Thanks again for such a great story.

    Jeff,
    In recent weeks I’ve noticed that The Fresh Market in my neighborhood W. Boca has been carrying an extra large shipment of fresh squeezed tangerine juice.

  3. Malcolm Holmes says...

    Fresh tj isn’t the easiest to find in markets. For years I’ve squeezed a few tangerines in the morning for juice.

  4. Louis Carson says...

    Great article.
    Ive been drinking fresh tangerine juice for years. The stuff really does work.

  5. Lois Gottlieb says...

    Jeff,
    Long time fan.
    I remember when this article first ran on jeffeats.com and decided to follow the recommendation. One of the best things Ive ever done. Tangerine Juice really helps to keep people in good shape.

    There is nothing more refreshing than a cold glass of fresh squeezed tangerine juice. By Gregg L. Friedman MD

  7. Jeff,
    I get fresh squeezed Tangerine Juice at the Boys Market in Delray Beach. They sell Kennesaw brand juice which isn’t pasteurized.
    When out of season, I squeeze my own.

    Jeff Eats,
    As a long time reader I’ve loved and sometimes hated your “calls.” All in all, jeffeats.com is one of the best sites that I’ve ever found and I read and check it every day.
    I must tell you that your 2014 Tangerine Story was probably the best post. As far as I’m concerned. When I first read it, it made a whole lot of sense to me and had me checking other sources on Tangerines. That post got me hooked on drinking Tangerine juice or eating Tangerines every day- since then. As you suggested. Everything has been fresh and nothing is pasteurized.
    I just wanted you to know that I’m 76 years old and since starting this Tangerine daily regiment I haven’t been sick even one single day right up today. I will also tell you that my personal internist who tested me for Covid-19 told me that I was negative and that the fact that I’ve been drinking and eating Tangerines for so long and so steadily probably helped to prevent my getting sick with the virus.
    Nobody knows for sure, but I highly recommend that your readership start drinking tangerine juice or eating tangerines steadily asap.
    thanks,
    KLEINMAN

  10. Unless for some medical reason your MD tells you not to drink or eat tangerines, I’m telling you drink an 8 oz glass a day or eat 8oz equivalent and you will be a happy camper.

    Tangerine juice works. Just make sure that it’s fresh squeezed and not pasteurized.

  13. Just got home from the Boys Market in Delray Beach. Bought 6 32oz Kennesaw Fresh Tangerine bottles. Your story makes a whole lot of sense to me. This initial buy will get me started on adding tangerine juice to my everyday diet.
