Nine(9) Important Health Benefits Of Mangoes

Hey guys, don’t you love mangoes?


What’s not to love about them!

They’re sweet, brightly coloured and delicious!

In some parts of the world they’re actually
called the ‘King of Fruits’ and today,

we’re gonna find out why.

Here’s why you should be eating more mangoes:

They’re packed with good stuff
Mangoes are full of vitamins and minerals

your body needs, but don’t take our word
for it, check out all the benefits.

One cup of chopped up mango will give your
body the following: 1 gram of protein, 2 grams

of fiber, 20% of your copper, almost your
total recommended amount of vitamin C for

the day (about 67%), 10% of your vitamin A
and E not to mention decent amounts of vitamin

B5, K B6.


Really the list goes on and on but we think
you probably get the point by now, they’re

really good for you.

They’ll Make Your Hair and Skin Look Nice
Because mangoes are packed with a ton of vitamin

C and A, they’ll help your hair grow and
can fight off wrinkles.

Vitamin A will encourage the hair to grow
and can also produce the stuff that helps

moisturize your scalp, which in turn keeps
your hair looking great.

Not to mention all the vitamin C in there
will boost your collagen levels.

Collagen is your friend, especially when it
comes to your skin, that’s what gives it

it’s bounce and will help prevent it from
getting wrinkled or losing shape.

Speaking of the skin, did you know mangoes
are commonly used to treat acne?

It’s a bit of a home remedy, but you can
use the pulp by applying it to the affected

area and it’s said to open clogged pores
in your skin.

This could reduce the amount of acne on your
skin.

All you gotta do is apply the pulp into your
skin for about 10 minutes and rinse.

Can Help Protect You From Asthma
There’s something called beta-carotene that’s

in things like mangoes, papaya, broccoli,
carrots and more.

It’s said that this nutrient (among others)
can help fight off the effects of asthma.

Asthma is a chronic illness that can affect
anyone at any age and is commonly known to

swell the airways to a person’s lungs, making
it difficult to breath at times.

It’s said that those who eat more beta-carotene
had a lower risk of developing asthma in the

first place.

If you already have asthma, it probably won’t
cure you as no cure is available, but giving

your body a boost with all these added nutrients
can’t hurt.

Antioxidants
Ah yes, something we talk about all the time

here at Bestie.

Antioxidants are extremely important if you
want to stay healthy.

They protect your body from free radicals
which are harmful compounds that basically

hurt your body at a cellular level.

You want lots of antioxidants that can fight
them off because free radicals are linked

to all sorts of bad stuff like cancer, diabetes,
premature aging and other diseases.

The good news is mangoes are overflowing with
polyphenols that act as antioxidants.

It’s also been said that mangoes contain
some “super antioxidants” as well.

Just part of the reason why we think mangoes
are super.

Good For Your Eyes
So, we just covered how mangoes contain antioxidants

which now you know are really good for you,
well there are two specific ones called lutein

and zeaxanthin which can help your peepers
in a big way.

These compounds protect the retina and lenses
in your eyes, but these particular compounds

also have been proven to help you physically
see further (help your visual range) can help

your eyes deal with glare more efficiently
and will also help your eyes adjust more easily

after they’ve been exposed to bright light,
like when someone uses the flash on their

camera and you see dots for the next 10 minutes,
isn’t that annoying?

Can Help Your Heart
Fiber, potassium and lots of vitamins are

all things that your heart loves.

Cons uming lots of these healthy vitamins
and minerals can actually help you prevent

heart disease which is the leading cause of
death in the United States.

If you up the amount of potassium along with
cutting back on salt you can really help reduce

your risk of hypertension as well.

Plus the potassium, and magnesium found in
mangoes have been shown to help keep you pulse

healthy, relax your blood vessels and possibly
help to lower your blood pressure.

All that from a delicious mango!

Digestion
Keeping your stomach happy is something we

all want.

No one wants indigestion or even worse, to
become constipated.

Turns out mangoes are good for your gut, too.

They help your stomach break down food so
it can be absorbed into your system.

It’s because of the digestive enzymes and
these are really prominent in ripe mangoes,

and the more ripe your mango is, the sweeter
it is.

Not to mention mangoes have fiber, so that’ll
help keep you regular and really help you

out if you’re someone who experiences constipation
or any digestive problems like that.

They’re Good Right Down To The Bone
Wait, mangoes don’t have bones, but you

do!

Yep, mangoes are good for your bones too.

Because of the vitamin K they contain they
can help make your bones stronger.

People who have a low intake of vitamin K
are at a much higher risk of developing osteoporosis.

Vitamin K is made from plants, and you can
get it from things like mangoes, kale, collard

greens, brussel sprouts and more.

Vitamin K also helps your body absorb calcium,
which as you’ve probably heard before is

good for your bone health.

Can Help Boost Your Immune System
The vitamin that gets the spotlight on this

topic is vitamin A. Mangoes provide about
10 percent of your recommended daily intake

of vitamin A and this one is essential for
keeping your immune system healthy.

Your immune system fights off infections and
keeps you healthy so keeping your vitamin

A intake up is vital.

Not to mention all the vitamin C that comes
from mangoes can help your body make more

white blood cells.

These are your bodies mini heroes that charge
into battle to defend your body against disease.

Mangoes are super versatile and easy to add
into any diet.

You can eat them sliced up on their own or
you can add them to smoothies, salads and

even salsa!

One small thing to keep in mind is that mangoes
are really sweet, so while they do contain

all these health benefits, it’s best to
limit yourself to about one mango a day, or

about 2 cups.

The key to a healthy diet is variety anyway,
so you don’t want to overdue it on any one

particular thing at a time anyway.
