Mangoes contain an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that assure your optimum health.

When you eat mangos every season, you probably don’t think about the immense health benefits that come with every bite.

Mango is known as the king of fruits and that's not because of its luscious taste. They also contain an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that assure your optimum health.

Health benefits include:

1.  Prevents Cancer

Research has shown antioxidant compounds in mango fruit have been found to protect against colon, breast, leukaemia and prostate cancers. These compounds include quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid as well as the abundant enzymes.

2.  Lowers Cholesterol

The high levels of fibre, pectin and vitamin C in Mango helps to lower cholesterol levels, especially low-density lipoprotein.

3.  Clears the Skin

Mangoes can be used both internally and externally for the skin. Mangos clear clogged pores and eliminate pimples.

4. Alkalizes the body

The tartaric acid, malic acid, and a trace of citric acid found in the fruit help to maintain the alkali reserve of the body.

5. Helps in Diabetes

Mango leaves help normalize insulin levels in the blood.  The traditional home remedy involves boiling leaves in water, soaking through the night and then consuming the filtered decoction in the morning.

6. Improves Digestion

The fibre in mangos also helps digestion and elimination.

Papayas are not the only fruit that contains enzymes for breaking down protein.
