Mangos taste so good that people forget they are also healthy! 
Discover how the “king of fruits” can help you, plus fascinating trivia and a few mango cautions and concerns.

Health Benefits:

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.

2.  Lowers Cholesterol:
The high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C help to lower serum cholesterol levels, specifically Low-Density Lipoprotein (the bad stuff)

3.  Clears the Skin:
Can be used both internally and externally for the skin. Mangos clear clogged pores and eliminate pimples. (Read more on page 5.)

4.  Eye Health:
One cup of sliced mangoes supplies 25 percent of the needed daily value of vitamin A, which promotes good eyesight and prevents night blindness and dry eyes.

5.  Alkalizes the Whole Body:
The tartaric acid, malic acid, and a trace of citric acid found in the fruit help to maintain the alkali reserve of the body.

    I NEVER KNEW THAT MANGOES DECREASE OR CONTROL SUGAR LEVELS AND GOOD BOON FOR DIABETIC PEOPLE

  11. Randy Fritz says:

    Thanks for your comment. Just to be clear, it is the LEAVES and NOT the fruit the help control diabetes. Eating TOO MUCH mango fruit could raise your blood sugar just like any fruit -even though it has a relatively low glycemic index.

  12. Randy Fritz says:

    Hi Mary. I’m happy that you are happy. I hope though, that by ‘too many’ you are meaning just one or two mangos per day and not five or ten a day. IF you are balancing out your body, you should be in tune with how much it actually needs.

  13. Sam Tsibuah says:

    I get some funny pains in my scrotum when chew the peels of mango fruits.What’s is the effect?

  14. Randy Fritz says:

    Honestly Sam, I am only guessing on this but there is a thing called ‘mango itch’ – caused when handling freshly picked mangos that have juice dripping from the stem ends. The sappy juice gets on hands and, if not washed off quickly and adequately, can be spread to other body parts for up to three days.
    The other possibility is that it is some internal reaction. Even though mangoes have a host of health benefits, there always remains of possibility that your unique body is reacting in some way. This is the old ‘one man’s poison is another man’s medicine’ idea.
    Just so you know, a lot of people don’t like the skins and don’t bother with them.

    I grew up in the Carribean on a large property with lots of mangoes, avocadoes, orange, grapefruits, and many others. We ate lots of mangoes of course just because we loved them. Good to know they have so many health benefits. Wish I could have them here in NYC and don’t have to pay for them. Thanks for the info.
