Smoothie Benefits:
Let’s start with all of the good beta-carotene offered in carrots and mangoes.  What exactly does beta-carotene do for our bodies? This is the key component in our bodies to produce vitamin A.  Once beta-carotene is digested in our bodies, walaaa, vitamin A can be made.  Vitamin A is absolutely essential for our cells to be created and repaired and also helps differentiate cells from one another.

And just so you know, beta-carotene is totally vital for fetal development – So, pregnant ladies and new mommies, drink up!  We want those baby’s lungs to develop properly.

Do you want healthy vision?  Drink up.
Do you want to help fight colds and reduce inflammation?  Drink up.
Do you want to help prevent cancer?  Drink up.
Do you want to increase your sex drive? Check.

If you are trying to shed a few pounds or want to control your weight, mangoes are good for weight loss.  They are very rich in fiber and nutrient dense, which means you will feel full when you haven’t actually eaten a lot, so what a great snack in the afternoon to tide you over before dinner.  Speaking of fiber, you can thank that for your digestive health.  Say no to constipation and colon disease!  Kiss Your Wellness so you can avoid having to go to the doctor as much!

Another cool thing about mangoes is that they have been shown in studies to help with memory and concentration, thanks to the glutamine acid it produces – This is like one of the most important ingredients in brain food.  This aids in making sure signal transmissions in your brain go smoothly.  Yay for our brain!  Up your ability!
