Vitamin C for You and Me!
With the kiddos back to school now, that means they’ll be bringing a host of germs home with them. From playground equipment to shared school supplies, those little buggers are everywhere. To help support immune function, eat Vitamin C. A serving (3/4 cup) of mangos is high in vitamin C.
We all know that vitamin C is important for immune function, but did you know that mangos are high in this antioxidant? Just one ¾ cup serving of mango provides 50 percent of your daily vitamin C requirement.
In addition to boosting your immune system, vitamin C supports healthy cognitive and neurologic function, which is very important for your health. This antioxidant also helps with wound healing – hello, playground scrapes and falls – and keeps gums and teeth healthy.
Vitamin C is helpful in so many ways to the human body for adults and kids alike, so be sure to eat your mango a day!
