Mangos also improve digestion. They’re rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals which is great in aiding digestion. They’re a fibrous fruit which also helps your body digest and eliminate the bad stuff. Mangos also contain an enzyme that helps break down proteins. Who knew, right?

One very important thing that mangos do, is help alkalize the body. Our body needs to be at a certain pH level to function properly and well.
