Health Benefit of Mango
Hi friends of SlimGourmet! People must be familiar with mango, one of fruits that easily found in supermarket or traditional market. Because of its popularity, people called it king of fruits. However, do you know nutritional benefit contained in mango?
In Latin, this fruit also called Mangifera indica contains sugar, dietary fiber, carbohydrate,vitamin A and vitamin C that have some health benefit to our body. Even though mango
contains sugar, it has a moderate glycemic index so it doesn’t increase your blood sugar significantly. Then, mango also contains some antioxidants that can
prevent cancer. Those antioxidants are quercetin,isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, asam galat dan methylgallat. Meanwhile,
vitamin A, antioxidant called zeaxanthin, and beta carotene in mango have health benefit in eyes, prevent night blindness & dry eyes. Dietary fiber, pectin, and vitamin C in mango can help lowering cholesterol and LDL level.
However, don’t be tricked by some sweet drinks outside like mango shake that generally contains high sugar and fat from adding syrup & cream. SlimGourmet serves fresh mango which contains optimal nutrition benefit. Besides served as dessert menu, fresh mango can be processed as appetizer like in this week’s menu, Thai Mango Salad.
Let’s live healthy, happy, and prosperous with SlimGourmet!
