Amazing Benefits of Mangoes









I just love this delicious fruit, and even more so since I discovered what the medicinal benefits of Mangoes are.

Home Remedies Haven is totally committed to researching and sharing with you the benefits of our earth's natural resources.

We might not always  be able to back this up with the scientific reasons (sometimes it is pure folklore) as to why these fruits of our earth are beneficial, but where we can we always will.

 Benefits of Mangoes - Improving your Memory

Now, before I forget, I must tell you how good mangoes are for improving your memory and your concentration levels.

This tasty fruit contains what the boffins will call a non-essential amino acid called Glutamic Acid.

In short what this means is that this Glutamic acid is involved in "cognitive functions such as learning and memory in the brain" and helps improve long and short term memory.

Benefits :

  • Rich source of beta carotene, which the body can convert to vitamin A.

  • Rich source of vitamin C which is a natural anti-oxidant.


Drawbacks:

  • Mangoes are quite high in sugar: a medium-sized fruit is about 14% sugar.

  • They are also very acidic, they may contribute towards dental decay if eaten frequently.



Mangoes for improving your Digestion

Now... I am  not gonna bla bla bla here about the Esters, terpenes and Aldehydes that are enzymes contained in mangoes because I do not want to bore you with the stuff that only doctors need to keep at their fingertips. 

Apparently, all these enzymes help the digestive tract relax and process food more efficiently, so add mangoes to your salads or have them neat after your meal as pudding, to help with digestion of your food.


Look how many types of Mangoes are available on the Island of Hawaii alone.

Mangoes for Maintaining good Eye Health

Mangoes are a very good source of Vitamin A which is an antioxidant vitamin and will help protect the surface of the eye (cornea) and is a vitamin essential for good vision.

If you suffer from dry eyes and use an eye drop containing Vitamin A and you have  found it to be an effective treatment, then why not ensure your intake of Vitamin A and keep mangoes in your diet whenever you can.



Mangoes and Copper Levels

Quick lesson on copper:  Our bodies need copper to make energy, it also helps make red blood cells and keeps nerve cells and our immune system healthy.

And guess what, Mangoes have enough copper in them to help keep our copper requirements at a normal level.



Mangoes and Sex

And last, but definately not least Mangoes are good for your sex life because of the abundant quantities of Vitamin E found in this fruit.

Pineapples

Pineapples are high in fiber and are such an incredibly "sweet way" of promoting healthy bowels and avoiding indigestion.

This fruit contains bromelain which is a mixture of enzymes that help to digest protein.

And then it also helps dissolve blood clots and is good for prevention of osteoporosis and bone fractures because of its high manganese content.

And to top it all it also has antibacterial and anti-viral qualities.
