The king of fruits contains 10 per cent of the required daily intake of Vitamin A making it a brilliant addition to support your eye health. Moreover, it is loaded with antioxidants which may protect your eyes from the blue light which is known to wreak havoc on the eyesight.

07/8 ​It is great for digestion

If you are tired of eating bananas to aid your digestive system, we advise giving this ripe fruit a go! It is loaded with fibres and is rich in amylases which is a digestive enzyme which helps in breaking down carbs from starch into sugar. This ensures better absorption and easier digestion of food. Infact, as the mango ripes, the amylase enzymes in the fruit become more active, making it delectably sweet.

08/8 ​A reminder before you gorge on mangoes

While mango certainly makes for a versatile fruit, one should ensure to enjoy it in moderation. Its versatile nature makes it an ideal addition to delicious smoothies and shakes as per your taste. Additionally, this sweet fruit is a great alternative to junk food and can be relished when the cravings kick in.

However, whether you add it to shakes, smoothies or simply peel and slice it up to eat, it is important to keep your portions reasonable. Since it is indeed sweeter when compared to other fruits, it is advisable to stick to 1 to 2 cups of servings per day. If you have diabetes, you should consider speaking to your doctor about the intake of mango so that you don’t go overboard.
