MANGO

Mango Nutrition Information
Mango's are very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium.They're also a good source of Dietary Fiber and Vitamin B6,and a very good source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. For those who are physically active, whether working out or constantly on the go, mango's are a great way to replenish that lost potassium.An average sized mango can contain up to 40% of your daily fiber requirement. Research has shown that dietary fiber has a protective effect against degenerative diseases, especially with regards to the heart; may help prevent certain types of cancer, as well as lowering blood cholesterol levels.Beyond being delicious and rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, mango's contain an enzyme with stomach soothing properties similar to papain found in papayas. These comforting enzymes act as a digestive aid and can be held partially responsible for that feeling of contentment.
Mango is supposed to prevent prickly heat and heat stoke and acts as antidote for these too.It help to get over summer fever and tiredness.
Even a little pulp of boiled mangoes mixed with coconut oil and applied to the body at bath time help to soothe prickly heat or rash
Mango is rich in vitamin A and other nutrients .

Selecting Mangoes
Good-quality Mangoes will yield slightly to gentle pressure when ripe. The coloring will be deep red and/or rich yellow with only a blush of green at the most. (Very green mangoes are used in certain dishes) Medium to large mangoes are generally best. A ripe mango will smell fairly fruity on the stem end as long as it is not cool.
