Mangoes

Mangoes are a delicious fruit that have many nutritional benefits. They contain a lot of vitamin A and C, potassium, iron, and some copper. Their vibrant yellow/orange color also tells us that mangoes are rich in carotene.

When buying and eating mangoes, make sure that you only eat ripe mangoes, because unripe mangoes aren’t nearly as delicious but can also have a slightly laxative effect. Ripe mangoes, on the other hand, soothe the intestines and are easily digestible. The mango pulp stimulates the entire metabolism and strengthens connective tissue. This fruit is an absolute superfood and can be used in both sweet and savory dishes!
