What Happens When You Eat One Mango a Day


Have you ever heard of the King of Fruits? (Well, ha ha, that’s actually another nickname
I have, along with Prince of Popcorn and the Duke of Desserts. Hey, enough about me.) If you’ve ever enjoyed some mango on a hot
summer day, then you’re already acquainted! So, what earned mango the King of Fruits title? (Yeah I was kidding earlier.) Besides the mouthwatering taste, this fruit
has so many amazing health benefits! Eat just one mango a day, and you’ll be
happy to see… 1. A radiant complexion
Mangoes are full of vitamin A. This is a common ingredient in skincare products, and that’s
for good reason. Your body needs vitamin A to grow and renew
cells. But even brand-new skin cells won’t look
that great if they’re not boosted up by collagen, a protein that makes skin look youthful
and plump. To produce collagen, your body also needs
vitamin C. Good news: you can get that from mangoes as well! 2. Beefed up immunity
Those two vitamins aren’t just going to have you looking fabulous, you’ll feel better
too! That is, if you tend to get sick pretty often. Mangoes can help you steer clear of the seasonal
cold and flu by strengthening your immune system. They do that by aiding in the production of
white blood cells. That’s your immune system’s soldiers that
fight infections and illnesses! Not to mention, with a stronger immune system,
you’ll see cuts and scratches healing faster too. 3. Eternal youth
Mangoes contain a whole alphabet soup of antioxidants. You’ve probably heard that word thrown around
a lot, but what does it mean? Antioxidants help protect your cells from
the damage caused by free radicals. Those things are everywhere in our environment,
and, in short, they age you! 4. A bright shiny smile
Don’t throw away the leaves and sprigs of a mango – chew on them for a couple minutes
instead. Dentists say this helps strengthen the gums
and lighten the tooth enamel. There ya go, a Hollywood smile to go with
your glowing skin! 5. Sweeter dreams
Mango contains a considerable amount of vitamin B6. Your body uses it to create specific neurotransmitters
responsible for sleep quality and mood. Sure, those two could be connected. I mean, if you sleep well, you probably won’t
be cranky and miserable! But believe it or not, studies have shown
that vitamin B6 helps fight depression too! 6. Sharper thinking
Speaking of the nervous system, mangoes also contain glutamine. It’s one of the most important amino acids
necessary for good memory and concentration. So, if you often feel kinda foggy or absentminded,
you might wanna try eating more mango! 7. Better digestion
Fiber is something you’ll find in most fruits, and your body needs it for good digestion. It helps your system absorb the nutrients
from your food. It also plays a major role in moving that
food through your gut. In just one mango, you’ll get 20% of your
daily recommended amount of fiber. You’ll also get 16% of your day’s potassium. This element helps in an interesting way – it
improves the communication between your brain and digestive muscles. That way, they know when to contract and move
food along through the system. 8. A happy heart
Eating a mango a day can be a nice practice to lower cholesterol levels and improve your
heart and cardiovascular health in general. Scientists know that high levels of cholesterol
increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes later on in life. With mangoes, it’s that power punch of potassium,
fiber, and vitamins that’ll make your heart happier and safer from disease! 9. Improved vision
One serving of mango contains 35% of your daily recommended vitamin A. Yes, that same
one that makes your complexion glow will also help your eye health. Well, at least it’ll help you maintain your
good vision for longer. Don’t expect that you’ll magically be
cured of your nearsightedness or anything. But if you can now, it’s always good to
prevent vision problems in the future! Carrots and berries also benefit your eye
health, and they can be combined with mangoes in smoothies. Yum. 10. Weight control
Mango is a storehouse of fiber and pectins, which is what gives us a feeling of satiety. That is, when you feel full after eating. What’s gonna help you with weight loss is
that mango makes you feel really full, yet it has very few calories. So, if you’re looking to shed a few extra
pounds or keep those inches off if you recently managed to lose them, then have a mango for
lunch! So much good stuff in so few calories, you
can’t go wrong! Actually, if you want to achieve that “fullness”
effect, you gotta eat the peel too. Don’t worry, it’s totally safe to eat,
especially if you buy organic. It just might not taste all that great! 11. Healthy bones
I’m sure you’ve heard that your bones need calcium to stay strong. That’s absolutely true, but your body also
needs vitamin K in order to absorb that calcium! Mangoes will give you 8% of your daily recommended
vitamin K, and your bones will thank ya for it! 12. Cancer prevention
This fruit contains loads of enzymes and plant compounds with high anticancer properties. Studies have shown that regular intake of
these substances through food reduces the likelihood of developing breast, prostate,
and colon cancer as well as leukemia. 13. Liver protection
You ever think about how much your body has to put up with, especially when you live in
the city? Constant stress, malnutrition, pollution,
and so on. Well, it’s your liver in particular that
takes the brunt of the force. That’s why it needs protection from toxins
and all that dangerous stuff that finds its way into your body. Antioxidants (those things that help your
cells fight free radical damage) are just what the doctor ordered! So, help the ol’ liver out and grab a mango! Now, Bright Sider, I must say, any time you’re
dealing with certain foods that can affect your body so much – even if it’s a good
thing like lowering your cholesterol! – it’s always best to get your doctor’s stamp of
approval before you do anything. For example, when it comes to eating mangoes,
doctors strongly advice those who have pancreatic diseases, gastritis, or hepatitis to be extra
careful! So, if you’re interested in what mangoes
can do for your health, see what the doctor has to say about it first and foremost! But if you don’t have any serious health
conditions, try eating mango on a daily basis. In a month, you’ll find yourself healthier,
happier, and even looking younger! The best thing about incorporating more of
this fruit in your diet is that it’s so versatile. You can eat it raw, throw it in a smoothie,
have it in a salad – your options are limitless! Here’s one of my favorite recipes: – Mango Chia Pudding
You’ll need about 1 cup of coconut milk, 2 cups of chopped mango, 2 tablespoons of
chia seeds, and 2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt. First off, put the chia seeds in the milk,
and leave it in the fridge for 20 minutes so that the seeds swell. While your seeds are swelling and chilling,
throw the mango pieces into a blender along with the yogurt. Combine it all in the end, and you’ve got
one delicious nutritious pudding! If you’re not a fan of Greek yogurt, you
can substitute some honey for it! And before you head to the store and try all
kinds of mouthwatering mango recipes, let me share one last tip with you… How to choose the best mango:
First of all, the fruit itself should be a good-looking one. No bruises, insect marks, mold, or anything
like that, obviously. Like any fruit, your main task is to check
if it’s ripe. Since not all mangoes change color as they
ripen, you’ll need to give it a gentle squeeze. A mango fruit shouldn’t be too hard or too
elastic. The perfect ripeness is when it feels almost
like the palm of your hand or fingertips. You can also smell it – some will have a
fruity scent at the stem when they’re ready to be eaten. When in doubt, it’s always better to buy
unripe fruit than an overripe one. At home at room temperature, the mango reaches
its perfect condition in just 2 or 3 days. Well, those are my tips, so what about yours
– any good recipes or advice on how to pick the perfect fruit? Leave them down in the comments! If you learned something new today, then give

mangoes just yet! I don’t know what that means. We have over 2,000 cool videos for you to
check out. Just click on this left or right video and
enjoy! Stay on the Bright Side of life!
