Who doesn't love tropical mango? It's an Aussie staple, densely nutritious and to many 'the king of fruits'. I absolutely love the fragrance and taste, and while the carb count is 24g the fruit also contains 2.4g of fibre and to me , is worth the extra carbs for the hearty dose of vitamin C and other trace minerals. Mango is a good source of folate, several B vitamins, as well as vitamins A, C, K and E — all of which help boost immunity.
Mango is packed with polyphenols — plant compounds that function as antioxidants. Antioxidants are important as they protect your cells against free radical damage.
Boost Your Gut Health
Mangoes contain natural digestive enzymes that help break down food in the stomach. The water and dietary fibre in mangoes also support a healthy functioning digestive system. Compared to other tropical fruits, mangoes boast a higher amount of essential, dietary fibre with as much as 3g in 100g of fruit. The high-fiber content reduces symptoms and helps prevent gastrointestinal disorders like Crohn's disease. Adding more fibre to your diet is a vital healthy habit!
