Osteen mangoes from Spain, moving towards organic practices - 5 kilos - end of the offer: 20th of October.
Storage: a few days at room temperature until ripening. Once ripe you can leave them in the fridge.
DEPARTURE ON OCTOBER 25, 2022.
Harvested at physiological maturity by our new partner Iulian located on the Spanish Costa Tropical. To be able to withstand transport, the fruits are delivered still firm and will be ready to be eaten a few days after receipt.
We tested different varieties of mangoes and they are all so delicious that we decided with Aurélie to set up the logistics to be able to offer them to you in presale until October 20th.
The fields of Iulian are certified in organic conversion, that means it follows the rules of production of organic farming under the control of a certifying body, but does not yet benefit from the mention "organic" for its products. This period is 2 to 3 years for crops.
1) Mango is good for eye health
Mango is particularly rich in vitamin A, a vitamin that is very beneficial for our eyes. One cup of mango slices equals about 30% of our daily vitamin A requirement ! It helps to maintain good eyesight and avoid having dry eyes.
It also contains zeaxanthin and lutein, two antioxidants that help filter out bad UV rays to protect the eyes from the harmful action of the sun.
Thanks to all this, mango therefore helps prevent age-related macular degeneration.
2) Mango helps regulate blood pressure
Mango also has a very beneficial effect on blood pressure. This is because the potassium and magnesium it contains help regulate the heart rate and keep blood pressure at normal levels. It can therefore help those with hypertension to lower their blood pressure.
3) It reduces cholesterol
This is another reason why mango is very good for the heart ! Its fiber, C vitamin and pectin help reduce the level of bad cholesterol in the blood.
4) It helps fight diabetes
Mango leaves are very effective in regulating the level of insulin in the blood. For this, boil about ten mango leaves and let it rest overnight. In the morning, strain the mixture and drink the resulting drink before breakfast. Repeat regularly.
As for mangoes as such, it has long been believed that they can not be consumed by people with diabetes, otherwise their sugar levels will increase. But that's wrong. Indeed, although it has a very sweet taste, mango has a low glycemic index. This is around 50, and consumption of mango therefore has no effect on blood sugar levels.
5) Mango makes the skin young and beautiful
Thanks to the A and C vitamin it contains, mango participates in the production of collagen. By protecting blood vessels and keeping body tissues healthy, collagen helps the skin stay firm, slowing its aging.
In addition, mango helps protect the skin from UV rays, which also participate in its aging.
6) Mango helps fight acne
In addition to fighting skin aging, mango also helps to deeply cleanse the face, and therefore to fight acne. For this, you need to make yourself a mask with mango: cut slices from it and apply them to your face for 10-15 minutes, before rinsing. The pulp of the mango will help to open clogged pores and unclog them. It is these pores that cause acne!
7) Mango is good for the brain
This is due to its high content of B6 vitamin. This vitamin helps keep neurotransmitters healthy, so that they always work just as well. But it goes further: in addition to preserving our cognitive functions, it also helps to improve them.
So, not only is mango beneficial for memory, but it also helps to improve concentration. In addition, B6 vitamin helps decrease the risk of dementia in the elderly.
8) Mango improves digestion
On the one hand, the soluble fiber found in its composition helps facilitate food digestion and elimination. On the other hand, it contains digestive enzymes, which help digest proteins by participating in their decomposition.
As a result, mango is a very good ally against constipation, indigestion, excess acidity and hemorrhoids.
9) Mango strengthens the immune system
Thanks to its content of A and C vitamins and beta-carotene, mango helps protect our body from free radicals. In addition, its action on the digestive system also helps avoiding diseases, since many of them are related to a malfunction or poor health of our digestive system.
10) Mango helps to lose weight
Make no mistake: mango is sweet, but it is low in calories!
11) Mango is effective against anemia
Very rich in iron, mango helps fight anemia and reduce fatigue. It is therefore recommended for people who are exposed to iron deficiencies, such as pregnant women and women in the postmenopausal period.
