Asia, Mexico, and Tropics.  The charts show that, 1 cup of mango contains 76%

vitamin C, 25% vitamin A, 1% vitamin B6 plus other B vitamins, 9% probiotic

fibre, 9% copper, 7% potassium, and 4% magnesium that applies in the daily

value.  Mangoes are known to fight cancer because they're rich in antioxidants like

quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat that help

protect the body to prevent colon, breast, leukemia, and prostate cancer.  These are

incredible things to know that fruit and plant-based foods can cure and prevent

dis-ease from happening.  Mangoes are also known to alkalize the body because

Raspberries are loaded with nutrients and phytonutrients that are extremely

beneficial.  For one, raspberries are power packed with antioxidants and anti-

inflammatory phytonutrients properties that are not only found but are

abundantly provided.  These abundant antioxidants and phytonutrients are

enough to help protect against oxidative stress and excessive inflammation.

Raspberries are also great for lowering chronic dis-ease like obesity, type 2

diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerosis.  Also, new studies suggest two

compounds ketone and a flavonoid called tilliroside found in raspberries can

lower obesity risk and regulate blood sugar.  Raspberries have also been

found to be beneficial by preventing chronic dis-ease thus preventing cancer

cells formation.  In recent studies, phytonutrients found in raspberries have

been found to change signals between potential or existing cancer cells.
