A boon in disguise

09 Oct

Its summer time and also the season of the very famous king of fruits “The Mango”. Often I have found that people hesitate to consume this fruit with the common misconception that eating a mango isn’t beneficial for health. Well this is not that true, nature has its reasons for sprouting various fruits in the respective seasons. Each fruit grows in the particular season with a particular reason. Similarly the mango also comes with its benefits. Although as we all know too much of anything is always harmful for health, but when we look at the mango its all about eating the right amounts at the  right time of the day.

Ideally it is suggested to consume mango 30 minutes before workout as it is filled with energy and hence will make you feel fresh and more energetic, leading to better results. It can be consumed in the morning in various ways such as mixed with oatmeal or muesli, topping over toast or mixed in the form of a milkshake or even made into a nice soothing frozen yogurt.  Many of us prefer eating this delicious fruit while having lunch, well this is also a good time and it can be consumed through dishes such as mixed in homemade salad or salsa along with lunch. Infact eating this fruit whole is also preferred but we don’t realise how many we consume at one go. Hence it is advised to consume one whole mango in a day. This helps you gain the most of  the fruit as well as helps you avoid the question of overconsumption.

Mango as a fruit has many health benefits, it has high dietary fibre content which helps in improving bowel movement as well as reducing indigestion and other gastrointestinal issues. It is also loaded with vitamins A,C,D,B-6 and B-12, which help in maintaining various systems of your body. It has a lot of carbohydrates which helps you feel energetic as it is broken down by your body into glucose. So this summer don’t prevent your taste buds from stopping you to consume the king of all fruits!
