BEAUTIFUL,,,, Tropical Fruit... $.98Cents ea

wonderfull delicious... MANGO

107 calorie in a mango. per one cup serving, 24 grams of sugar ( a bit much), 3 grams of fiber, 2 weight watcher points....

Mangoes also contain all 4 recognised anti-oxidants (namely Vitamin A, Vitamins C & E and Selenium) that prevent Heart Disease, Cancer and Diabetes - the three biggest killers in the western world. Both vitamins A and C are anti oxidants and help to prevent free radical injury and thus reduce the risk of certain cancers.

Eating mangoes in the season may provide a store of vitamin A in the liver, sufficient to last for the rest of the year and highly beneficial for the prevention of vitamin A deficient disorders like night blindness.
From an advertisement...... sounds kinda lika a sales pitch..... helpful in treating acidity, poor digestion, and anemia. Drinking mango juice is also believed in improving the memory, concentration, and great in preventing mental weakness. Mangoes also contain Vitamin E which helps in the better functioning of hormonal system-improving the sex life. The amount of Vitamin C and calcium found in mangoes prevents internal hemorrhage also.

The ripe mango is antiscorbutic, diuretic, laxative, invigorating, fattening and astringent. It tones up the heart muscle, improves complexion and stimulates appetite

SO I go to my online medical dictionary..... 1st term: an·ti·scor·bu·tic/ (-skor-bu´tik) effective in the prevention or relief of scurvy.

second term: di·u·ret·ic (d -r t k) adj. Tending to increase the discharge of urine.
A substance or drug that tends to increase the discharge of urine. Diuretics are prescribed to reduce the volume of extracellular fluid in the treatment of many disorders, including hypertension, congestive heart failure, and edema!
I hear there is a mango peeler..... mango is a wonderfully, slimy sweet mess on the hands and knife with a realy big seed in the center!!!!
