Freeze-dried mango refers to the process of removing moisture from frozen fruit. The removal of water occurs under a vacuum, by gently applying pressure that transforms the frozen water directly into vapor thus creating light and crunchy fruit. This process leaves the cellular structure intact, retaining the nutrition of the mango.

 
THE KING OF FRUITS
 

Mango, also called "The King of Fruits," is one of the most nutritious fruits, with unique flavor and heath qualities, often labeled as "superfruit".

Eating mango is one of the healthiest decisions you can make for your body, while enjoying one of the most deliciously sweet fruit in the world.

 
VITAMINS & MINERALS
 

Mango fruit is an excellent source of vitamin-A and flavonoids like beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin. Together, these compounds have been known to have antioxidant properties and are essential for vision. In addition, vitamin A is required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin. Carotenes are known to protect the body from lung and oral cavity cancers.

Mango is a very good source of vitamin C, vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin B-9 (folate). Vitamin C is needed for normal growth and development and for the synthesis of collagen, a protein found in skin, tendons and ligaments. It is an important antioxidant protecting cells from free radical damage. As an antioxidant, vitamin C may help protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer. Vitamin B-6 is required for hormone production in brain and heart disease prevention. Vitamin B-9 plays an important role in helping your body produce proteins and DNA, the building blocks of newborn cells.

Mango provides good amounts of potassium, copper, selenium and iron. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Copper is a co-factor for many vital enzymes. Copper is also required for the production of red blood cells. Selenium can help guard against heart disease and other illnesses, such as colon and cervical cancer. Mango high iron content is beneficial to people with anemia and pregnant women.

Mango contains vitamin E, which can help the hormonal system perform more efficiently. It helps immune function and is an important antioxidant.

ANTIOXIDANTS & FIBER
 

Another health benefit of eating mango is that it is high in antioxidants. Antioxidants are nutrients that work as slowing or preventative agents against oxidative damage to our bodies. It contains antioxidant an agent called phenols. This phenolic compound is said to have powerful anticancer effects for the human body. Antioxidants like quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat present in mango protect the body against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers.

The high amounts of fiber found in mango promote healthy digestion. Fiber can guard against certain types of cancer (e.g. colon), high blood and cholesterol levels, and even some degenerative diseases, especially those regarding the heart. Additionally, the fibrous fruit boosts the digestive function of the body by burning additional calories, helping in weight loss.

 
 
 
APHRODISIAC FRUIT
 

Mango has aphrodisiac qualities and is also called the ‘love fruit’. It increases the virility in men. Vitamin E, which is abundantly present in mango, helps to regulate sex hormones and boosts sex drive, all of which increase attraction, mood and desire.

 
MEMORY & CONCENTRATION
 

Mango contains glutamine, which converts into glutamic acid in the brain and becomes an important excitatory neurotransmitter, which has numerous benefits for our memory and concentration. Glutamic acid stimulates glutamate receptors in the brain, which helps in hippocampal long-term potentiation and memory processing. Glutamic acid is also thought to play a role in mental alertness.

In addition, a neuroprotector in mango called mangiferin has therapeutic potential to treat neurogenerative disorders such as dementia, which can develop into Alzheimer’s disease.
