Just one 3/4 cup serving of tasty mango provides 8% of your daily Vitamin A, 8% of your daily vitamin B6, and 50% of your daily vitamin C!
Three Essential Micronutrients in Mango – A, B6, C
Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C are essential micronutrients. This means that your bodies cannot manufacture them and therefore they have to be included in the food and drink you consume. You should be able to get all the vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C you need by eating a varied and balanced diet.
Adding mango to your daily regimen, whether in meals, in drinks (such as smoothies) or as healthy snacks, helps to get your required amount of these three key nutrients which help support a strong immune system.
