The Many Health Benefits of Mangoes
Mangoes are not only delicious, but they're also packed with nutrients that can benefit your health in a variety of ways. In fact, mangoes are the most consumed fruit in the world! This versatile fruit can be used to make drinks, desserts, preserves, and sauces, and is an excellent addition as a topping for ice cream and smoothies. While mangoes are often prized for their culinary uses, they're often overlooked as a natural source of nutrition. Here are just a few of the many health benefits that mangoes have to offer.
Mangoes May Boost Your Immune System
One of the most well-known benefits of mangoes is their ability to boost your immune system. This delicious fruit is high in Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that can help fight off infection and disease. In addition to Vitamin C, mangoes also contain beta-carotene, another nutrient that's essential for a healthy immune system. Just one cup of mangoes contains 25% of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin C!
Mangoes May Help Lower Cholesterol Levels
Mangoes are also rich in fiber and pectin, two nutrients that have been shown to help lower cholesterol levels. Fiber helps bind together cholesterol molecules so that they can be eliminated from the body, while pectin helps block the absorption of cholesterol into the bloodstream. In one study, participants who consumed mangoes every day for three months saw a significant decrease in their LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.
Mangoes May Aid in Digestion
Mangoes contain enzymes that can help aid in digestion and may even relieve symptoms of indigestion such as bloating, gas, and stomach cramps. The fibers in mangoes can also help add bulk to your stool and keep you regular. And since constipation can lead to hemorrhoids—not to mention being just plain uncomfortable—eating mangoes on a regular basis may help you avoid this unpleasant condition.
As you can see, there are many health benefits to eating mangoes on a regular basis. So why not add this delicious fruit to your diet today? You'll be doing your body a favor!
