The latest health food trend has come just in time for the season to start after a nutritionist confirmed that eating mandarins were proven to help stop your hair from turning grey.
Speaking to PureWow, nutritionist Frida Harju-Westman revealed the age-defying properties of the mandarin. “Vitamin C helps the body produce more collagen, while vitamin A helps the hair stay hydrated by increasing the production of sebum,” said Harju-Westman.
She went on to say that the B12 in mandarin “can [also] help slow the greying process.” Losing the luster of your luscious locks and going grey apparently happens when the body lacks B12 and produces extra hydrogen peroxide — turning your strands silver. It makes sense that the more B12 you have, the less grey you’ll go.
The fantastic fruit doesn’t stop there though. According to Natural Food Series, the mandarin can also aid digestion, help with your eyesight, and even potentially lower your risk of cancer.
