Did you know that mango is a good source of vitamin E and vitamin C?
- Vitamin C and Vitamin E are antioxidants and may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
- Mango makes a great addition to your smoothies and salads or can also be enjoyed on it’s own!
Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant found in fruits and vegetables. Our body does not make or store vitamin C so we must consume it in our diet.
Vitamin C is found in every part of your eye. There is actually 10-20 times more vitamin C in the aqueous humor of your eye than there is in your blood serum!
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant found in fruit and also in oils, nuts, eggs and fortified cereals.
For your vision health, both vitamins act as antioxidants and may decrease the risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
