Originally from India, mangoes have been around for 4000 years. In India today, mangoes are considered a symbol of life, as the mango is the shape of our heart. According to legend, Buddha found his peace in his HEART in a mango grove. Mangoes are one of the best sources of betacarotene, quercetin and astragalin. These are powerful protectors that neutralise free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells and lead to heart disease, cancer, premature aging and degenerative diseases. Mangoes are particularly rich in potassium, which can help reduce the risk of high blood pressure. They are a great heart and circulatory food.
