Mango malpua

Mango is my favorite fruit and who doesn’t love this yellow gold during the Summer season which is a treat for the eyes and one’s taste buds. When I was a child we had mango trees in the neighborhood, and I used to love climbing trees and pluck mangoes or if the tree is protected by the owner, and children are not allowed in its vicinity, then would use stones to hit the right one to my liking which will eventually drop in the ground on the dried leaves, to be collected. This game of bringing down mangoes will just create ecstasy among the children and fear among the owners of Mango trees. The raw mangoes were just as good, sour to be consumed with rock salt and chilies, mouthwatering.

Benefits of Mangoes

Mangoes like any other seasonal fruits have a plethora of benefits. But Mango score 51 to 56 on the Glycemic index chart which is higher than dates which is 42 . Mango can cause a spike in sugar levels, but it is rich in fiber and antioxidants and if eaten in moderation it can benefit your health. The following are the nutritional benefits of Mango.

  1. Nutrient-Rich: Mangoes provide essential vitamins and minerals vital for immune support, vision, and bone health.
  2. Antioxidants: Mangoes are rich in antioxidants, guarding against cell damage and lowering disease risk.
  3. Immunity Boost: High vitamin C levels in mangoes enhance immune function, aiding in illness prevention.
  4. Digestive Aid: Mangoes, with fiber and enzymes, support digestion, prevent constipation, and improve nutrient absorption.
  5. Eye Health: Abundant in vitamin A and beta-carotene, mangoes promote vision and prevent eye conditions.
  6. Cholesterol Control: Regular mango consumption may lower LDL cholesterol due to fiber and vitamin C content.
  7. Weight Management: Despite sweetness, mangoes are low in calories and fat, aiding in appetite control.
  8. Skin Benefits: Vitamin A and C in mangoes promote healthy skin, collagen production, and UV protection.
  9. Hydration: With high water content, mangoes offer hydration, especially in hot weather.
  10. Potential Cancer Prevention: Compounds like polyphenols in mangoes may have anti-cancer properties, reducing cancer risk.
