Mangoes are an excellent source of Vitamin A and C, as well as a good source of Potassium and contain beta carotene. Beyond being delicious in taste and rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, mangos contain an enzyme with stomach-soothing properties similar to papain found in papayas. These comforting enzymes act as a digestive aid.
