Mangoes and its Benefits

I am not a big fan of summer. All this fuss about the sun and the beaches is beyond me. Summer brings with it scorching heat and sweat. There are some things, though, that summer has done right- fruits! Watermelons, litchis and mangoes!! But we are here to talk about mangoes. They are the perfect fruit and come in a hundred different varieties. They make for the perfect dessert and act as ingredients to some of the best dishes and sweets/desserts. But the amazing thing about this amazing fruit is that it also comes with not one but many health benefits.
