Weekend Plus Desk :
One of the most awaited things about summer months is the refreshing seasonal fruits that are a good relief from the sweltering heat. Topping the charts is the king of fruits, Mango that is relished across the country.
Besides being delicious, the fruit also packs some powerful health benefits. From helping lower the cholesterol levels to reducing the effects of ageing, here are some reasons why you should eat more of your beloved fruit.
Balances the cholesterol level
Mangoes are rich in fibre and Vitamin C and aid in digestion and regulation of blood lipid levels. Thus, they are quite beneficial in maintaining the cholesterol levels.
Promotes healthy sex
Mangoes are a generous source of Vitamin E and studies have shown that a balanced amount does help with a good sex drive.
Boosts immunity
Mangoes are a good source of Vitamin A and C along with 25 kinds of carotenoids. These help to keep the immune system strong and healthy.
Good for diabetes and cancer
Mangiferin is a bioactive compound that is present in mangoes and finds multiple benefits in treating infections, diabetes, cancer and heart diseases.
Helps in burning fat
The Vitamin B content of mangoes helps in the production of red blood cells and improves fat burning. Also, the phenolic compounds present in the fruit help to prevent chronic conditions like obesity.
Reduce the effects of ageing
Mangoes contain Zeaxanthin and Carotene that protect the eyes and skin from free radical damage. They also reduce the effects of ageing on the skin.
Reduce the risk of heart disease
Mangoes are packed with vitamins, minerals and enzymes that have a cardioprotective effect and reduce the risk of heart diseases.
