Great for entertaining, this mango cobbler is also heart-healthy and contains no-refined sugars. The cobbler is naturally sweetened with mangoes, along with apple juice.
The mango fruit is considered heart-healthy due to the high content of fiber and potassium. Potassium has been shown to help the heart by lowering blood pressure and to keep the heart beating regularly. The mango fruit also contains vitamin C and pectin which helps assist in lowering serum cholesterol levels. Mangoes are also a great source of vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine) helping to control homocysteine levels within the blood. If homocysteine levels are too high, damage can occur to blood vessels resulting in possible stroke. Other health benefits of the delicious mango fruit include improved brain function, decreased risk of cancer, improved digestion, decreased risk of obesity and diabetes, along with improved immunity.
