The generous amounts of Vitamin C and vitamin A in mangoes, plus 25 different kinds of carotenoids keep your immune system healthy and strong.

3. Helps Diabetes

Mango leaves help normalize insulin levels in the blood.  The traditional home remedy involves boiling leaves in water, soaking through the night, and then consuming the filtered decoction in the morning. Mango fruit also has a relatively low glycemic index so moderate quantities will not shoot up your sugar levels.

4. Promotes Hair and Skin Health

Mango is high in vitamin C, which promotes healthy hair and skin.

This vitamin is essential for making collagen — a protein that gives structure to your skin and hair. Collagen gives your skin its bounce and combats sagging and wrinkles.

Additionally, mango is a good source of vitamin A, which encourages hair growth and the production of sebum — a liquid that helps moisturize your scalp to keep your hair healthy.

What’s more, vitamin A and other retinoids migrate to your skin and protect it from the sun

5. Prevents Cancer

Mango is high in polyphenols, which may have anticancer properties.

Polyphenols can help protect against oxidative stress, which is linked to many types of cancer.

Studies found that mango polyphenols reduced oxidative stress and stopped the growth or destroyed various cancer cells, including leukemia and cancer of the colon, lung, prostate, and breast.

6. Promotes Weight loss

Mango has a lot of vitamins and nutrients that help the body feel fuller. Also, the fibrous fruit boosts the digestive function of the body by burning additional calories, helping in weight loss.

7. Aids concentration and memory

Studying for exams? This fruit is rich in glutamine acid– an important protein for concentration and memory. Feed mangoes to children who find it difficult to concentrate on studies.

8. High iron for women

Mango is rich in iron, hence it is a great natural solution for people suffering from anemia. Menopausal and pregnant women can indulge in mangoes as this will increase their iron levels and calcium at the same time.

9. Promotes eye health

Including mangoes in the diet may also help promote your eye health. Mangoes are rich in beta-carotene that helps in the production of Vitamin A. The powerful antioxidant helps improve vision, boosts overall eye health and even prevents age-related macular degeneration or loss of vision.
