Mango Diet: A mango a day can go a long way.

Updated: Feb 24, 2021

Mango is a highly versatile fruit that contributes essential nutrients and exquisite taste to a variety of meals and snacks. Did you know that mango finds its uses in both sweet and savory dishes? The ripeness level of mango determines its sweetness, and for a tarter taste, mango can also be eaten unripe.


Mangos contain over 20 different minerals and vitamins, helping to make them a superfood that you can add to your healthy meal plans (and shopping list).


Vitamin C: Mango is an excellent source of vitamin C that plays a major role in the work of the immune system. One serving (3⁄4 cup or 124g) of mango offers 50% of your daily dose of Vitamin C. It is also strong in providing Vitamin A, and B6


Strong Heart: A strong supply of folate from a single serving of mango, makes the body generate red blood cells which DNA, and encourages proper cardiovascular function. A serving of mango offers 15% of the daily requirements of folate.


Fiber and Weight Loss Management: One mango serving also offers 2 g of fiber, which slows down the bloodstream absorption of sugar and helps you feel full quicker and can therefore help improve weight loss. 7 per cent of your daily fiber needs are provided by a serving of mango.


Some of the dishes that you can incorporate into your plans for eating right are below:
