Health Benefits of Dried Mango
Dried mango is extremely rich in vitamin A, which keeps skin and mucous membranes healthy so that they can protect against bacteria and viruses. Vitamin A also promotes eye health, and can reduce the risk for macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness among older adults. Dried mangoes are also a good source of B-complex vitamins, which convert food into energy, relieve stress, and improve red blood cell production.
High in soluble and insoluble fiber, dried mangoes are an excellent source of both types of dietary fiber. Soluble fiber helps stabilize blood sugar levels, increases nutrient absorption, and may reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol levels. Insoluble fiber promotes a healthy digestive system and makes for a satisfying snack. Loaded with antioxidants, dried mango is a good source of the protective compounds that fight off oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
