Health Benefits of Mango

Updated on October 30, 2013

Mango

Mangoes are sweet juicy fruit. They are taken because of the fact that they are sweet to taste and because of their nutritional values. Mango fruits are seasonal fruits and these make them to be available at some times (hot season) while unavailable at other times. They are mostly cultivated in tropical regions. Mango fruit has many health benefits and some of them are discussed below.

1. Mango aids better sexual life

Mango contains vitamin E. This vitamin helps regulate sex hormones and therefore ensure better sexual life.

2. Mango aid proper digestion

Mango contains a large amount of fibres which help in preventing constipation and therefore help proper digestion of food. Mango has also been shown to contain digestive enzymes that are involved in catabolic reaction of protein and thus aids protein.

3. Mango boost memory

Mango contains glutamic acid. This acid has been shown to boost memory in children.

4. Mango consumption can help build a soft skin. Mango pulp can also be applied to skin for at least 10 minutes (before washing it off). This reduces the clogged pore that causes acne.

5. Mango contains high level of iron.

It is rich in iron and this makes it to be good for increasing blood production in the body. Iron is an essential element needed during blood cells production. By consuming an adequate level of mango, the body is able to get enough iron which aids the production of blood cells. Also the chance of developing anemia is greatly reduced by consuming much mango.

6. Mango prevents cancer

Many antioxidant compounds including isoquercitrin, quercetin, astragalin, fisetin, and gallic acid have been found in mango fruit. These antioxidants help in protecting the body against colon, breast and prostate cancers.

7. Mango helps maintains proper vision.

Mango fruit contains a good supply of vitamin A. This vitamin is very essential in maintaining proper vision. Vitamin A is also required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin

8. Mango contains a good quantity of potassium and copper.

Potassium is one of the major compounds present in the cell and it helps in regulating heart rate and blood pressure. On the other hand, copper is required in the production of red blood cells and it also serves as important co-factor for many vital enzymes in the body. Examples of these vital enzymes include superoxide dismutase. This suggests that if you are looking for a way to increase the amount of copper and potassium in your body, then considers increasing your mango intake.

9. Mango fruit has a good antioxidant property.

This fruit is an excellent source of flavonoids like alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-caryptoxanthin which have good antioxidant property.

10. Mango is a good source of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin C. Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is required during the production of GABA in the brain. It also controls homocystiene levels within the blood. The vitamin C present in this fruit helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and therefore boost the body immune system. Also the body requires the presence of vitamin C during the production of collagen in the body. Collagen is one of the structural proteins present in the body and it is required in the maintenance of structural integrity of the skin, bone, organs and blood vessels.

11. Mango fruit also contains many other vitamins like vitamin K and riboflavin. It also contains electrolyte like sodium and potassium. Minerals like calcium, manganese and zinc have been shown to be present in mango fruit.

With all these health benefits derived from mango, it is very clear that one of the natural ways to stay healthy is to increase mango intake. It is good if each individual can plant a mango tree at his or her backyard.

      I'm one of a few admins on a site and we each have mlupitle computers, locations, and browsers we use.From what I can tell, your solution seems like it'll take care of all of that by just inserting your code problem is, where how/ does one use it?Obviously, I'm completely clueless on coding, I'm just a blogger who is tired of seeing 2/3 of our hits come from the admins (not to mention how much that's skewing the other results- notably time on site and bounce rate).Thank you for your help.
