Mango - Body-Fat Reducing Health Food

Mango, Water.

How to make it:
The simplest way is just plain old mango, but it’s also fantastic whipped into a smoothie, or added to hot or cold cereal. It also works well with savoury dishes, like baked or grilled seafood. And for a healthier treat, slather whipped mango onto free-from cupcakes in place of processed frosting.

Interesting Facts: Mangos are rich in immune supporting vitamins A and C, in addition to fiber and unique antioxidants, which have been shown to fight inflammation, a known trigger of ageing and disease. Now new research, from scientists at Oklahoma State University, shows that these delicious gems may also help reduce body fat. In the animal study, mango flesh was freeze-dried, ground into a powder, and added in small amounts to the meals of some mice, but not others. After two months, scientists found that the mango-fed mice had less body fat, as well as lower cholesterol levels, and better blood sugar control.
