Fiber from Mangos
Get a punch of fiber in your diet with a mango a day! Just one 3/4 serving of these superfruits contains 7 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 source of fiber, eating mangos makes it super easy to get in some of that daily fiber. A 3/4 cup (one serving) of mango contains 2g. of fiber. And while you’re at it, you’ll also be consuming 50 percent of your daily vitamin C, 8 percent of your daily vitamin A and 15 percent of your daily folate – all in just 3/4 cup of mango. It’s hard to say no to that.
