Mango

Chances are you’ve chomped down some delicious mango during the hot summer months, but did you know the awesome health benefits it provides your body? Coming in at 100 calories per cup, make sure you’re not having too much! If you’re after clear, vibrant skin this is where its at. A Korean study proved that mangos have a positive impact on skin aging where sun exposure was present (EY, et al., 2013). Mangos will also help decrease cholesterol, while at the same time increase the levels of good cholesterol (HDL high-density lipoprotein) (Tadimalla, 2017). Vitamin A and beta-carotene are seen to assist with eye health, and mangos have plenty of this (Blythman, 2013).
