Enjoy the weight-managing, nutrient-dense sweetness of mango in this mango smoothie bowl.
Mangoes not only provide a sweet flavor and a beautiful orange color, they also pack a health-dense punch. Let’s discuss all the benefits of this amazing fruit!
Alkalize the Body
Mangos are high in tartaric acid and malic acid which help the body to maintain a healthy pH. An acidic body leads to inflammation and disease.
Balance Blood Pressure
Due to the high amounts of magnesium and potassium found in mangos, they provide a natural way to keep blood pressure levels in check. Magnesium is also great for healthy muscle contraction, utilizing B vitamins, and it helps the body to absorb calcium.
Who doesn’t want a healthy brain? We need our brain for everything we do in life: from breathing to writing a 5000 word essay. Mangoes are packed with vitamin B6 (and numerous other B vitamins), which are known for maintaining and possibly improving brain function. The B vitamins also help support a healthy mood and healthy sleep patterns.
Mangoes are high in vitamin K which is an essential vitamin in building strong bones.
High in Fiber
This means better digestion and elimination. Health begins in the gut, so ensuring a healthy gut is crucial for overall wellness.
Due to their high amount of beta-carotene, mangoes help increase immunity, protecting us from sickness and infection. Beta-carotene also ensures healthy skin, hair, teeth and gums, plus promotes the growth of strong bones.
Now you see why we should be eating mangoes, not only because they taste good, but because they are a nutritional powerhouse. So get going already and enjoy a delicious mangoes and cream smoothie bowl!
