Health Benefits of Mangoes

June 15, 2017

 

Mango, a member of the drupe family, has been named the most widely consumed fruit in the world!  I do not beg to differ! Not only is mango a sweet, filling treat, it has also become a part of the family to some of us. Mangoes have health benefits too!

Mangoes:

  • Decrease the risk of obesity

  • Decreases the risk of diabetes

  • Decreases the risk of heart disease

  • Are a powerful antioxidant that plays a role in eye health, possibly able to ward of the damage from macular degeneration.

  • Lowers asthma risks

  • High in beta-carotene

  • Decreases risk of prostate cancer

  • High in fiber and helps to prevent constipation

  • Vitamin A makes them good for hair and skin – can be used internally and externally on the skin to help clear pores

  • Vitamin C and collagen

  • Lowers cholesterol

  • Alkalizes the body

  • Improves Digestion

  • Boosts the immune system

 

With so many benefits almost targeting every system of the body, the only thing left to say, “Here’s to great health! Eat mangoes!”
