The Benefits of Mango

The super-dog-food that will have your dog living longer than you

Encourage healthy growth and development with vitamin A

Mangoes are a great source of vitamin A which promotes the healthy development of your dog’s bones, vision and immune health. The addition of vitamin A to your doggy’s diet has many benefits such as the prevention of declining eyesight and muscle deterioration as your furry friend ages.. Basically, feeding your dog mangoes will ensure that your dog will be able to spot those squirrels from 100 feet away and bolt after them for many years.

A little bit of sugar can go a long way

Fruits are known to have high amounts of natural sugars and because of this too much can actually be bad for your dog - mangoes are not exempt from this fact. What is beneficial though is that mangoes have a low glycemic index so feeding a diabetic dog small servings can help normalize insulin levels. To add, the natural sugars make mangoes a great source of energy. With all this said, this is really just a lesson of everything in moderation.

Antioxidant-rich to round out this superfood

Mangoes are a great source of the antioxidants, vitamin C and E. You can never go wrong by adding antioxidants to their diet as they neutralize free radicals which improve the immune system and prevent the deterioration of cells. Just like humans, vitamin C is a necessary element for a healthy immune system while vitamin A is known to protect body cells from damage.
