Mango, a native to India, was first cultivated around 20-30 million years ago in Northeast India, Bangladesh and Burma now called Myanmar. Widely known as the King of Fruits it is not just a delicious tropical fruit but healthy too!! Mangoes can be consumed in many ways, apart from eating them in their natural state, mangoes are extensively used in making pickles, chutneys, smoothies, milkshakes, cakes, desserts etc. 

If you consume mangoes without adding more sugar to it, the natural sugar of the fruit hardly causes any harm. It’s a general perception that sweet fruits aren’t healthy, but that is not the case. Mangoes are probably amongst the sweetest fruits you come across, but here are some of the benefits of mangos that you would surely find amusing:

  • Improves your immune system as it is highly enriched with vitamin C and antioxidant content.
  • We get almost 10% off or a daily dose of vitamin A from a single-cup serving of mango. Vitamin A is another to help support a healthy immune system.
  • Mango alone can provide you with nearly 75% of your daily requirement of vitamin C which helps produce more white cells that fight diseases.
  • It also has a liberal amount of several B vitamins that work towards improving and defending your skin. It has immunity booster nutrients too.
  • Mango contains potassium and magnesium, resulting in a healthy blood flow, thereby supporting a healthy heart. Continuing research in this direction is one to substantiate the claims.
  • As mango contains a group of digestive enzymes called amylase it works well for your digestive health too.
  • Since it contains plenty of water and fibre it has been known to help with digestive issues like diarrhoea and constipation.
  • It is full of nutrients that help support your eye health.
  • Anti-oxidants like zeaxanthin and listen are the key ingredients concentrated in the retina of your eyes that converts light into signals for your brain to ultimately interpret what you are seeing.
