Ideally, you should consider buying tangerines in season only which is generally from November to February.
Tangerines have a high sugar content in general than other citrus fruits. Those with sugar related problems will want to consult a doctor, preferably a naturopathic doctor, before using. Those that cannot tolerate oranges may find they can tolerate tangerines due to the lower acidity content.
Citrus fruits, when taken in excess, are known to leech calcium from the body. All citrus fruits add citric acid to the body and so it's a good idea to get some exercise after having a citrus fruit drink.
You should always remove the rind of grapefruits, oranges and tangerines. Remove the rind, but leave the white membrane as the white membrane contains bioflavonoids. The bioflavonoids help the body absorb and use Vitamin C.
The rind of oranges, grapefruits and tangerines must be removed as the rind is difficult for the human body to digest. The rind can subsequently cause rectal problems.
Drink immediately after juicing to ensure you get all of the Vitamin C.

Traditionally, in Chinese herbal medicine, the skin and the inner white membrane are used for their herbal benefits more so than the fruit itself.
Cautions & Suggestions:
In traditional Chinese herbal medicine, it is said that you should avoid eating oranges and tangerines when you have the flu. As a result, tangerine juice should therefore be avoided while sick too. Chinese herbalists also suggest you avoid seafood while sick. This thought process goes against what most westerners have been led to believe or think. But Chinese herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years and so there is a lot of experience to backup why they make these suggestions.
Nothing to report.
