ORGANIC YOGHURT // with Mango and Nectarine

Mango boosts the immune system and helps prevent breast, colon, prostate and blood cells (leukemia) cancer. It is a fruit suitable for those who suffer from diabetes due to its low glycemic index. Nectarines contain no saturated fats and are low in calories (100g contains 44 calories). They also contain a small portion of vitamine C, A, B and minerals needed by the body.

Mango & nectarine yoghurt is an ultra-refreshing combination. Throwing in a small freshly-cut mango and one nectarine into a cup of skimmed yoghurt makes for a delicious breakfast or a snack during the day. What you might have not known is that mango boosts the immune system as well as helps prevent cancer of the colon, breast, prostate and blood cells (leukemia). Mango is a food that fights low density lipoprotein (the bad cholesterol) and additionally keeps your skin healthy (and spot free!). The copper found in mango aids in formation of blood cells, and the fiber helps in digestion. All these beneficial effects of mango are due to vitamine C, carotenoids, compounds such as quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat. Mango also improves eye health and prevents night blindness due to the vitamine A it contains. Due to the relatively low glycemic index of mango, it is a fruit suitable for those who suffer from diabetes.
