Before we give you the recipe, we’ll fill you in on some pretty amazing facts about this mighty fruit, which is native to India and Southeast Asia. Along with adding intense natural sweetness to all kinds of recipes from desserts to drinks to salads and more, it boasts some impressive health benefits – giving you just another reason to make it part of your regular diet.

Not only does mango taste like a tropical dream, but you may not realize just how incredibly good it is for your health! As you can see above, look how much vitamin C there is in just one regular size mango… about 203% of the recommended daily value! Even if you eat half, you’re still getting a full day’s worth of this nutrient!

If eating an entire mango seems like a tall task, remember that the middle of this fruit bears a very large pit, making the fleshy part that you actually eat a smaller surface area than you may think. With that being said, mangos are a high-sugar fruit (even though its natural sugar). So, definitely keep that in mind if your goal is weight loss, or you’re watching your carb intake. If you’re on the keto diet, this isn’t the fruit you want to add into your meal replacement shake drinks, so skip the mango smoothie – but, we have tons of delicious keto-friendly shake recipes, here!

Now let’s check out some mango health benefits…

Digestive, Skin, Immune Health & More!

While you’re sipping the dreamy Mango Protein Shake Recipe you’ll find at the bottom of this article, keep some of these stand-out health benefits in mind. Mangoes truly do benefit your overall health in many, many ways…

Improves Digestion

Mangoes are high in both fiber and water, so they can help relieve digestive issues including constipation and diarrhea. In addition, they contain digestive enzymes called amylases, which help break down larger foods that you eat – ensuring they’re easier to absorb and you receive all the vital nutrients from them.

Enhances Immune Function  

Along with the crazy-awesome amount of vitamin C a mango provides, it’s also high in other well-known antioxidants, including vitamins A, K and E. In addition, its high in folate and several B vitamins – all of which also help boost your immune function and make you less susceptible to disease.

Supports Skin Health/Anti-Aging

All of that vitamin C is also amazing for your skin, hair, and even your nails, as it’s needed to make collagen – a protein that’s a major component of connective tissues all over your body. Basically, when you have enough collagen, this translates into healthier, more radiant hair; less hair loss; strong and healthy nails; and clear and firm skin that’s free of wrinkles and sagging.  

Protects Good Eyesight

Mangos also contain antioxidants that are particularly beneficial for eye health – called lutein and zeaxanthin. These nutrients protect your eyes from the sun and harmful “blue light”, (such as from electronic devices), that could potentially cause macular degeneration, or an eye disease that can cause vision loss. In addition, as mentioned, mangoes are high in vitamin A – and getting sufficient vitamin A is so vital to eye health, that a lack of it can cause vision problems.
