Mango trees are evergreens that will grow to 60 feet tall. The mango tree will fruit 4 to 6 years after planting. Mango trees require hot, dry periods to set and produce a good crop. Today there are over 1,000 different varieties of mangos throughout the world.
Mangoes are high in fibre. This makes them a great food for helping to lower LDL cholesterol. Fibre is also important in keeping the gut regular and healthy. Mangoes are high in Vitamin C, which is a potent antioxidant and an immune booster.
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 by soothing the stomach and digesting proteins.
Aussie Health Products stock an amazing range of certified organic as well as non organic dried mango. For fresh mango, when it is in season, we recommend Harris Farm Markets.
