MANGO is known as “king of fruits” in Asian countries. It is not only a delicious fruit but also contains such vitamins minerals, acids, and fiber by which it has been proved to be a powerful antioxidant.
Here are some of its main health benefits which can be gained besides its delicious taste:
Mangoes Health Benefits
The phenols in Mangoes, such as quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, Gallic acid, and methyl gallate, as well as the abundant enzymes, have cancer-preventing capacities. MANGO is also high in a soluble dietary fiber known as pectin.
The scientist has identified a strong link between eating lots of fiber and a lower risk of cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. A cup of sliced Mangoes (around 165 gram) contains 76 percent of the needed daily value of vitamin C. A potent antioxidant which helps protect cells from free radical damage and reduces the risk of cancer.
2- Eye health
One cup of sliced Mangoes supplies 25 percent of the needed daily value of vitamin A, which promotes good eyesight. Eating Mangoes regularly prevents night blindness, refractive errors, dryness of the eyes, softening of the cornea, itching and burning in the eyes.
3- It helps in digestion
Mangoes contain digestive enzymes that help break down proteins and aid digestion. It is also valuable to combat acidity and poor digestion because of an enzyme found in the fruit which soothes the stomach. Due to the high amounts of fiber found in MANGO, it can be helpful in keeping you regular, thereby helping or preventing constipation.
Eating one or two small tender Mangoes in which the seed is not fully formed with salt and honey is found to be a very effective medicine for summer diarrhea, dysentery, piles, morning sickness, chronic dyspepsia, indigestion, and constipation.
4- It is beneficial to skin
MANGO is effective in relieving clogged pores of the skin. What this means is that people who suffer from acne, which is caused by clogged pores, will benefit from MANGO. Just remove the MANGO pulp and apply it on your skin for about 10 minutes before washing it. Eating MANGO regularly makes the complexion fair and the skin soft and shining.
5- Beneficial for anemia
Mangoes are beneficial for pregnant women and individuals suffering from anemia because of their iron content. Also, vitamin C in the MANGO enhances the absorption of iron from vegetable food like rice.
6- It boosts memory
Mangoes are useful to children who lack concentration in studies as it contains Glutamine acid which is good to boost memory and keep cells active.
7- It helps in avoiding heat stroke
Unripe Mangoes, a rich source of pectin, when steamed and juiced with cumin (Jeera), rock salt and sugar, provide an excellent remedy for heat stroke and heat exhaustion in summer.
Weight gain: Mangoes can be beneficial for people wanting to gain weight. A 100 gram of MANGO contains about 75 calories.
Also, raw Mangoes contain starch which gets converted into sugar as the fruit ripens. So, ripe and sweet Mangoes when consumed with milk (rich in protein) can be very helpful in weight gain.
Mangoes can be eaten both raw and ripe. Mangoes are a good source of vitamins and minerals essential for the human body. Always have Mangoes in your daily diet as this can benefit your health more than your usual non-fiber diet.
