You are not eating mangoes right way, Says Nutraceuticalist

Mangoes, I wonder who doesn't love them. 

Benefits of Mango Peel

Sweet, juicy and delicious pulp. Enriched with taste and nutrients. Mangoes occupy one of the first five places in most favorite fruits of the people. Well yes, I prefer dying while eating mangoes.

But like any other fruit, are we enjoying the nutritional value of the mangoes? Dr. Arshad Mehmood Abbasi - Nutraceuticalist and author of two books believe we aren't.

You are all missing the nutrient value of mangoes, It's not the pulp which have the most nutrients. 
I was shocked when he said that while having the discussions on different foods and their abilities to cure diseases. He added,
We shouldn't be discarding the mango peels, It is the most nutrient part of the plant
Mango peels are enriched with bioactive compounds and antioxidants. Consumption of such antioxidants offers health benefits including protection against cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Mango peel is a major byproduct obtained during the processing of mango products such as mango pulp and amchur. In the present study, the antioxidant activity of mango peel extracts was examined. mango peel extract exhibited good antioxidant activity in different systems and thus may be used in nutraceutical and functional foods. Ok, Alright! But no one is going to mango peels. He added,

Who said you have to do that, powder it, mix it in any food while cooking, it will enhance the taste.
