National Mango Board (NMB) ignores critical data when promoting Hot Water Treated Mangoes






















"The National Mango Board (NMB) for years has been a center of disinformation and has blatantly ommitted critical data from the USA consumer. The fact is that Hot Water Treated and Irradiated Mangoes are devoid of critical enzymes that Natural or RAW mangoes possess. To pass off Hot Water Treated (HWT) and Irradiated mangoes as healthy is a crime. It is high time that the National Mango Board (NMB) take responsibility for the Fraud that has been perpetrated upon the USA consumer"


~Will Cavan
Executive Director
International Mango Organization (IMO)





This is why Enzymes are important. To choose to deceive the USA consumer and promote HWT & Irradiated mangoes as if they possess the same healthy characteristics as Healthy mangoes (RAW or Natural) is irresponsible and punishable by law....
















Health Benefits 

Revered not only for their exotic sweetness and juicy quality, mangoes are known for their many health blessings. They contain an enzyme similar to papain in papayas, a soothing digestive aid. These proteolytic enzymes that break down proteins are effective meat tenderizers regularly used in tropical countries where mangoes are grown. The enzyme list continues with magneferin, katechol oxidase, and lactase that not only protect the mango from insects, but help humans by stimulating metabolism and purifying the intestinal tract.

Studies have shown that foods containing phenolic compounds have powerful antioxidant, anticancer, and anticardiovascular abilities. Mangoes possess the phenols quercetin, isoquercitfin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid, and methylgallat.

In India mangoes are used as blood builders. Because of their high iron content they are suggested for treatment of anemia and are beneficial to women during pregnancy and menstruation. People who suffer from muscle cramps, stress, and heart problems can benefit from the high potassium and magnesium content that also helps those with acidosis.

One lab test turned up rather startling results that raised mangoes to the "highest perch." Mango juice was poured into a test tube that contained viruses. Shortly, the viruses were destroyed.





Nutritional Benefits 

One medium mango, about 10 1/2 oz., is a mighty impressive, self-contained package of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that only packs 135 calories. Like most fruits, the mango is low in protein, about 1 gram for a medium size, but you can certainly benefit from its 3.7 grams of fiber.

Being of the plant kingdom, mangoes contain no cholesterol or saturated fat and contain only about .6 grams of total fat. Their sodium content ranks low at 4 mg.

Mango is a shining star in the beta carotene realm, summing up at 8061 IU for that same medium size. If you're looking for a boost in potassium, look no further than a medium mango with its 322.92 mg. It's the perfect fruit to replenish energy after heavy physical exercise like jogging or working out. Magnesium content is 18.63 mg.

Mango scores 57.3 mg of vitamin C and offers impressive numbers for vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B6. There's even a touch of zinc in our featured fruit, with calcium at 20.7 mg. and iron at .27 mg.

Although these figures will vary with the different varieties and different sizes, there is little doubt that the mango is an exceptional fruit, not only for its high-ranking nutrients, but also for its intense, zesty and delightful flavor that just may taste like paradise itself.

Use digestive enzymes to improve your digestion


Tuesday, July 22, 2014

(NaturalNews) Enzymes are extremely vital to human well-being. They play a critical role in digestion and nutrient assimilation, in immune response, cognitive acceleration and cellular detoxification, among other things. Get a wide variety of digestive enzymes to improve your digestive system.


Enzymes are long-chain proteins that take on specific shapes and act like a key to unique locks throughout the body. Their job is to carry out very specific functions throughout the body. Most of the digestive enzymes are produced by the pancreas and are therefore called pancreatic enzymes.






Enzymes and the digestive process:

Enzymes are extremely important for breaking down carbohydrates, protein and fatty acids and preparing them for proper digestion and assimilation in the body. Individuals with digestive challenges are often unable to produce sufficient quantities of digestive enzymes and are unable to effectively digest the food that they are eating.







Improper digestion causes significantly more stress and inflammation in the gut lining that ultimately leads to the degradation of the mucosal membranes and the complications of leaky gut syndrome. When the mucosal membrane is damaged, it is then unable to secrete the appropriate enzymes, and we end up with a vicious cycle that causes more gut inflammation.







Symptoms of low pancreatic enzymes:

Bloating and cramping

Diarrhea and constipation

Flatulence (gas)

Low energy

Fatigue after meals

Weight gain

Food sensitivities

Food in stools

Nutrient deficiencies





Key enzymes for improving digestion:Some of the key enzymes that break down various carbohydrates and fibers include lactase, maltase, amylase, cellulase, glucoamylase, alpha-galactosidase and sucrase. These enzymes help metabolize various sugars and fibers, which reduces inflammation in the gut and the development of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).







Amylase:

This is an
enzyme produced both in our saliva and by our pancreas and secreted into the small intestine. Amylase helps the body metabolize sugar and starch and turn it into glucose.





Glucoamylase:

This enzyme breaks off a free glucose molecule from the complex sugar-based chains that form starch, disaccharides or polysaccharides. The glucose can than be freed up as a source of energy for the body.







Sucrase:

This enzyme breaks down sucrose into fructose and glucose. Sucrase is secreted by the tips of the villi of the small intestine. Individuals with celiac disease or intestinal inflammation may have trouble producing adequate sucrase.





Maltase: 

This is the enzyme that helps break down the sugar maltose into two glucose molecules.





Lactase:

This is an enzyme that helps break down the sugar lactose into glucose and galactose. Many people are deficient in the enzyme lactase and are unable to process lactose, which leads to serious gastrointestinal distress and chronic inflammation.







Alpha-galactosidase:

This enzyme hydrolyses the terminal alpha-galactosyl moieties from glycolipids and glycoproteins found in starchy carbs. This enzyme is the active ingredient in many popular products that helps the body reduce gas production from beans and legumes.




This key enzyme helps break down the real tough polysaccharides and oligosaccharides found in foods that are tough to digest like nuts, beans, lentils and cruciferous veggies.






Cellulase:

This enzyme breaks down one of the major fibers in fruits and vegetables called cellulose. Cellulase breaks down cellulose into beta-glucose. Glucose from cellulose is released slowly and should not dramatically increase blood sugar but rather provide a more stable fuel for the body.







Proteolytic enzymes:

Proteolytic enzymes are necessary to metabolize protein molecules into amino acids. When individuals have a compromised digestive tract, they are unable to secrete adequate amounts of these proteolytic enzymes and they end up with large protein molecules that further irritate the gut and poor amino acid absorption which leads to deficiencies.

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
