Benefits
Green mangoes are rich in vitamins C, A, and B, pectin (prevents the formation of stone), and minerals such as calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium (94). Green mangoes help in digestion, prevent anemia, scurvy, cholera, and dysentery, and protect you from heat stroke.
Cumin seeds are rich in iron, which is very important for menstruating women. They also aid digestion and help fight cancer (95).
Honey contains a myriad of vitamins and minerals. It helps in metabolizing cholesterol and fatty acids. Honey has a good glycemic index and promotes better digestion (96).
