WEB DESK: Summer is right here and one thing that everyone waits in this intense heat, are mangoes. Mangoes are delicious to eat and a must after every lunch and dinner. Although, not many knew the health benefits of mangoes.
Here are five health benefits of mangoes.
1. Prevents Cancer:
Research has shown antioxidant compounds in mango fruit have been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers.
These compounds include quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat, as well as the abundant enzymes.
The high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C help to lower serum cholesterol levels, specifically Low-Density Lipoprotein (the bad stuff).
Can be used both internally and externally for the skin. Mangoes help clear clogged pores and eliminate pimples.
Papayas are not the only fruit that contain enzymes for breaking down protein. There are several fruits, including mangoes, which have this healthful quality. The fiber in mangoes also helps digestion and elimination.
Juicing the fruit from green mango and mixing with water and a sweetener helps to cool down the body and prevent harm from overheating.
From an ayurvedic viewpoint, the reason people often get diuretic and exhausted when visiting equatorial climates is because the strong “sun energy” is burning up your body, particularly the muscles.
The kidneys then become overloaded with the toxins from this process.
