Well hi there all, it's mango season and for those of us who are previliged to have mangoes, eat all you can! mmmmmh, juicy, delicious and healty!
A comfort food. Mangos really can make you feel better! Beyond being delicious and rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, mangos contain an enzyme with stomach soothing properties similar to papain found in papayas. These comforting enzymes act as a digestive aid and can be held partially responsible for that feeling of contentment we experience during and after our daily mango ritual. Yes, it is quite natural to crave those mangos! www.freshmangos.com.
