Mango Health Benefits
Mangoes are one of the most delicious and nutritious foods, with a fascinating history. Cultivation of mangoes is deeply embedded in Indian History. Mangoes are mentioned in early Arialkrit literature and Alexander the Great spotted his first mango in 326BC when he traveled with his army to India.
There’s a good reason why we adore this exotic fruit: it contains more than 20 different vitamins and minerals and is super-rich in fiber. Mangoes are also bursting with protective nutrients; contain an enzyme with stomach-soothing properties, and are useful for replenishing your potassium levels.
The vitamin content of mangoes depends on the maturity of the fruit: when a mango is green, the amount of vitamin C is higher; as it ripens the amount of beta carotene, or vitamin A, increases.
Mangoes scored 93 out of 100 on the recently introduced NuVal scoring system for overall nutritional quality.
To get the most out of your mango, pick one that is heavy for its size, has a fragrant smell and is soft when pressed.
