King of nutrition
Mango botanically known as Mangifera Indica, it is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2 and C, and is believed to have originated in India over 4,000 years ago.Mangoes are an excellent source of carotene as compared to other fruits. Just 100 gms. of mango contain about 1990ug of beta-carotene (Vitamin A), which is much higher than in other fruits. The total carotenoids in mango increase with the stage of ripening. Eating mangoes in the season may provide a store of vitamin A in the liver. This is sufficient to last for the rest of the year and highly beneficial for the prevention of Vitamin A deficiency disorders like night blindness.
Mangoes, both ripe and unripe, are very good sources of Vitamin C. Up to 16 mg of Vitamin C are present in 100 gms. of mango. Both Vitamins A and C are anti oxidants and help to prevent free radical injury and thus reduce the risk of certain cancers. A ripe mango supplies 74 kcal per 100 gms. (mainly derived from fructose). Raw mangoes have fewer calories compared to ripe mangoes. The ripe mango fruit is also a good source of potassium and only traces of sodium makes it suitable for hypertensive patients.
