3 Ingredient Smoothie Bowl
Updated: Oct 27
Do you have trouble falling asleep? Look no further than the mango for your miracle sleep aid. When you eat a mango before bed, phytochemicals from the fruit, along with amino acids such as glycine, glutamine, and cysteine combined with fructose and glucose, travel to the brain and quickly restore depleted neurotransmitters (Medical Medium). This allows you to get some healing, restful sleep.
Mangoes are also rich in beta-carotene which helps support the skin, and help prevent a variety of skin cancers. Mangoes are high in bioavailable magnesium, which calms the central nervous system, sooths the stomach, alleviates constipation, prevents strokes, heart attacks, and seizures. The magnesium, combined with glucose and traces of sodium, makes a great addition to your pre-workout regimen by allowing longer, harder workouts while feeling less of "the burn".
