Welcome the season of sunshine and bring a smile on your loved ones faces with a sweet gift (both literally and metaphorically) of mangoes. Mangoes are not only one of the yummiest fruits, if not the yummiest, but also jam packed with health benefits. So, here are 5 health benefits of mangoes that will make you want to send gifts pakistan to all your near and dear one including yourself.
- A Healthy Happy Gut
The pulpy flesh of the mango fruits is packed with prebiotic dietary fibres. This feeds the healthy bacteria flora in your gut. These prebiotic bacteria in the gut help with leaky gut, breakdown of complex food molecules, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.
Mango has natural enzymes like pectin, amylase enzyme magniferin, etc. which help our body to digest food with more efficiency. The bioactive ingredients in mangos like esters, terpenes, and aldehydes play a major role in enhancing appetite, and also improve the overall function of the digestive system.
- Brings a glow to your skin
Mangoes have as much as 67% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C. This vitamin is essential for the production of collagen in our body. Collagen is what gives our skin its elasticity and plump look. Unfortunately as we age, the collagen under our skin starts depleting leading to lines and wrinkles. Mangoes can act as a speed breaker in the way of signs of ageing on your skin.
The vitamin A in mangoes, apart from helping in collagen production, are a great way for reversing sun damage and protect the skin from the harmful effects of the harsh tropical sun internally.
- Boost your immunity
The rich reserve of vitamin C in mangoes helps in the synthesis of white blood cells within the body. These cells are the warriors for our body which fights with infections and protects us from a multitude of diseases.
The fruit is also very rich in beta-carotene which is a powerful carotenoiod. The sunshine yellow colour of mangoes comes from this antioxidant. Excess of beta-carotene in the body is converted into vitamin A that gives additional protection against oxidative stress to our body.
- Promotes eye health
The lack of vitamin A in the diet has been linked to a variety of eye condition such as dryness of the eye, night blindness and corneal scarring. Mangoes are rich in two antioxidants – lutein and zeaxanthin. These two antioxidants settle in the cornea and protect it against the harmful rays of the sun and absorb excess light.
- Helps in weight gain
Mango is a boon to those who have been struggling with being underweight or wish to add some extra pounds to their frame. Mangoes not only have a fair bit of calories but are also rich in starch which is broken down into sugars that help the body to gain weight.
So, if you are looking for a gift then, look no further than a beautiful basket of fragrant Chonsa, Sindhri or Anwar Ratol mangoes from a reliable online gifting store that send gifts to pakistan online.
