Health Benefits of Mangos:
1. Helps to prevent cancer:
Mangos are loaded with antioxidants that have been found to protect against prostate, colon, leukemia, and breast cancers. These include astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid, isoquercitrin, methlgallat, quercetin, and many enzymes.
2. Benefits the Eyes:
Think about the color of mangos. Now think about the color of carrots. What do we know carrots help with? The eyes! Why? Because of the vitamin A they contain. Mangos are a great source of vitamin A, which helps to promote good eyesight. In 1 cup of mango it contains 25% of daily value of vitamin A.
3. Helps to lower cholesterol:
They're a great source of fiber,vitamin C, and pectin, which helps to lower serum cholesterol levels (LDL), the bad kind.
4. Helps with Digestion:
They contain enzymes that help break down protein. The fiber they contain also helps digestion and elimination.
