What those benefits are?
1. It Prevents Cancer:
Research into the fruit shows that the antioxidant compounds it contains have been found to combat colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. These amazing compounds include isoquercitrin, quercetin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat and abundant enzymes!
2. Clears the Skin:
Mangos help to clear clogged pores and eliminate pimples. There’s more. For, they can also be used externally on the skin!
3. Improves Eye Health:
One cup of sliced mangoes serves up 25 percent of the needed daily value of the valuable vitamin A. Of course, vitamin A is a must for anyone hoping to improve/maintain their quality of their eyes.
4. It Lowers Cholesterol:
The high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C help to lower serum cholesterol levels, specifically Low-Density Lipoprotein (the bad stuff).
