Know Your Ingredients:
Mango, or the 'king of fruits, is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Mangoes are high in vitamins A and C, supporting healthy eyes, skin, and hair. The presence of amylase, water, and dietary fiber make mangoes good for digestive health. Further, the nutrients present in mangoes help improve immunity, have anti-cancer effects, and are good for heart health. However, due to a moderate-high glycemic index, eating mangoes may lead to a spike in blood sugar levels. So they should be consumed in moderation, especially by people with diabetes.
