Fiber from Mangos
Get a punch of fiber in your diet with a mango a day! Just one cup of these superfruits contains 12 percent of your daily fiber requirements, and it’s a delicious way to work your way up to that 100 percent a day.
So, what’s the big deal about fiber anyway? Fiber helps with your digestive needs. It makes you feel full faster, which can help support weight management – you stop eating when you feel full, so shout out to fiber for this fun feature! It also helps control constipation (always important), and even slows the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream. All in all, fiber is pretty great for your bod.
As a good source of fiber, eating mangos makes it super easy to get in some of that daily fiber. According to the USDA, one cup of mango contains 2.64 g. of fiber. And while you’re at it, you’ll also be consuming 100 percent of your daily vitamin C, 35 percent of your daily vitamin A and 20 percent of your daily folate – all in just one cup of mango. It’s hard to say no to that.
