The Power of the Mango
Some call it “The King of Fruit” and here in The Kingdom of Thailand, it is an abundant and healthy source to help not only cure your appetite, yet also cancer with its compounds such as quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat, and abundant enzymes. So what is NOT to like about The Mango? I don’t know!
Just today, after eating a nice Thai noodle meal for 70 Baht (about $2 USD) some friends at a local restaurant simply cut up a couple Mangos to share. It was “Arroy Mak” (Very Delicious)!
I will leave you with a little known fact…
Did you know that The Mango is related to the cashew and pistachios? It’s true – look it up!
