Mangoes also contain B-complex (anti-stress) and E vitamins, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, folic acid (folate), and zinc. Plus they are a good source of dietary fibre - an average sized mango can contain up to 40% of your daily fibre requirement.

For those of you who are physically active, whether working out or constantly on the go, mangos are also a great way to replenish much needed nutrient. Also deliciously rich in anti-oxidants, mango is the perfect fruit! Truly 'the king of fruit'.

Mangoes are an ideal Summer food as they possess elevated levels of many carotenoids, especially Betacarotene, which has a protective effect against the harmful rays of the sun.

Every part of the mango is beneficial and has been utilised in folk remedies in some form or another. Whether the bark, leaves, skin or pit; all have been concocted into various types of treatments or preventatives down through the centuries. Especially interesting is the fact that mangos contain an enzyme with stomach soothing properties similar to papain found in papayas, which act as a digestive aid.

Together with other substances, it can form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can narrow the arteries and make them less flexible. If a clot forms and blocks a narrowed artery, heart attack or stroke can result. Unlike LDL, HDL actually helps to remove cholesterol from the tissues and delivers it to the liver for excretion. and sodiumSodium, with potassium and chloride, helps to regulate the body’s fluid balance.
