Summer time is coming to an end, and with it, mango season! Unravel the eight astonishing benefits of eating mangoes.
The high vitamin C, pectin, and fibre content present in mangoes helps in lowering cholesterol levels, especially the “bad” LDL cholesterol as well as triglycerides in the blood. At the same time, they help in increasing the “good” HDL cholesterol. Those who want to get rid of their cholesterol problem, should adhere to eating mangoes to reap its benefits.
Mangoes are rich source of potassium and thus helps in maintaining the sodium level, which in turn regulates the body’s fluid level and protects you from heat stroke. During the summer days, you can eat raw mangoes daily to keep your body cool and rehydrate your body quickly.
You can make a healthy drink with raw mangoes to prevent heat stroke. Boil two raw mangoes in two cups of water until they become soft. When it cools, squeeze out the pulp of the boiled mangoes and add it to a glass of cool water. Add rock salt, sugar for taste and you can also add mint leaves to it. Drink it once or twice daily to protect yourself from the harsh effect of sunlight.
Mangoes are beneficial for the eyes too. The high amount of vitamin A facilitates good eyesight and prevents various eye-related disorders like night blindness, cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eyes and other ocular discomfort. Also, the flavnoids like beta-carotene, alpha-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin present in mangoes are vital for good vision. So, just one cup of sliced ripe mangoes compensates for 25 percent of your daily requirement of vitamin A.
Mangoes can work wonders for your skin, that is the reason why mangoes are used in several face packs and scrubs. Being a great source of antioxidants, vitamin C in particular, mangoes can impart a healthy glow to your skin. The Vitamin A and beta-carotene present in mangoes can restore, rejuvenate and revive your skin rendering it free from dark spots, blemishes and acne.
It’s very easy to use, do not throw away the skin after peeling a ripe mango, instead rub the skin over your face, and allow it to dry for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. And here you are, the proud owner of a glowing, soft and supple skin.
