Nutrition & Mangoes
Our Mangoes are Organic grown and low in calories yet high in nutrients — particularly vitamin C, which aids immunity, iron absorption and growth and repair.
The mango, or Mangifera indica, is a rich fruit full of vitamins and minerals. Eating ripe mangoes at night is beneficial because they won’t raise your blood sugar. Our article reviews 7 benefits of eating a mango at night and how doing so can improve your overall health. Promotes Sleep
Mangoes contain sleep-promoting vitamins and minerals, like vitamins B6 and B12, magnesium, and potassium. Vitamin B6 increases the production of melatonin, a natural hormone that maintains the circadian rhythm. Vitamin B12 helps keep the circadian rhythms in sync and also lowers the risk of depression, a health condition that can disrupt the sleep-wake process.
Magnesium reduces nerve activity by slowing down nerve impulses and relaxing muscles. Potassium is a mineral and natural muscle relaxant. Good for Digestion
Mangoes contain digestive enzymes that help break down protein content. This sweet fruit is a good source of dietary fiber and curbs those late-night cravings. Fiber also improves digestive health by keeping the digestive tract working efficiently, so there’s less risk of developing stomach diseases, like irritable bowel syndrome. Maintains Blood Pressure
Mangoes are packed with potassium and beta-carotene, which reduce sodium content in your blood—high levels of sodium are responsible for high blood pressure.
Eating a mango before bed can also lower blood sugar levels by increasing insulin secretion. Insulin lowers blood glucose by suppressing glucose output from the liver. Improves Heart Health
The potassium found in mangoes improves heart health. Potassium helps trigger the heart to pump blood throughout the body. Researchers have also found a link to potassium deficiency and heart disease in some animal studies. Relieves Asthma Symptoms
Asthma symptoms can be worse at night than during the day because the body releases higher stress levels when you relax and prepare for bed. This stress release causes inflammation in the airways, leading to coughing and congestion. Mangoes contain anti-inflammatory properties, including antioxidants and fiber. Reduces the Risk of Cancer
Raw mangoes have phenolic components, like gallic acid, which can reduce the risk of cancer. Gallic acid is a natural antioxidant that inhibits carcinogen growth in the body. Great Source of Vitamins
Mangoes are full of vitamins, including vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Vitamin A is anti-inflammatory; it boosts the immune system by improving cellular immune response against diseases. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and helps protect cells from free radicals which would otherwise cause damage.
Mangoes are a particularly rich source of vitamin C, which is also an antioxidant, protecting the body against free radical damage. Vitamin C also reduces the risk of heart disease, prevents iron deficiency (a common problem in pregnant women), and regulates high blood pressure.
