The mango is often referred to as the king of fruit. This is because of its taste, color and beauty. Mangoes are among the most popular fruits worldwide. They are an excellent source of vitamins C and A, both important antioxidant nutrients. Vitamin C promotes healthy immune function and collagen formation. Vitamin A is important for vision and bone growth. Mangos are a good source of dietary fiber and low in fat. Try a mango in your smoothie or use it to make a refreshing summer salsa.
