Mangoes are a power fruit. Their high vitamin B6 content helps remove chronic inflammation from the body, improves skin issues and helps with feelings of depression.
Lack of vitamin B6 is associated with chronic inflammation, and so its important to include foods in your diet (like mango) that are high in this vitamin. Mango is also rich in vitamins A, C, E and K. They contain an excellent source of potassium, copper, 17 amino acids as well as omega-3, and omega-6 fatty acids.
They are also high in folic acid, which promotes heart health, and is important for preventing anemia and allowing the bowels to properly absorb nutrients.
