1. Is dried mango safe during pregnancy?
Yes, you can eat dried mango slices while being pregnant.
One of the benefits of dried fruits is that you can consume them in lesser quantities than the raw ones and still get the same result, since most of valuable nutrients are preserved after drying.
However, always beware that consuming too much of them can lead to various complications, such as Gestational diabetes. So you can have them, but in moderate quantities.
2. Health benefits of dried mango for pregnancy
Iron prevents anemia
Mangoes are rich in vitamin C and help in the absorption of iron, which an expecting mother needs to overcome pregnancy-related-anemia.
Folic acid aids fetal development
Mango is a great source of folic acid which is essential for the development of the fetal brain and spinal cord. Furthermore, mango consumption prevents the neural tube defects which can occur in early pregnancy.
Dietary fiber manages digestive health
The fiber content in mangoes helps you feel full for a longer duration. Also, mangoes aid digestion and prevent constipation that women experience in the first trimester.
Provides rich antioxidants
The vitamin C content in mango acts as a powerful antioxidant that helps develop resistance against free radicals. These radicals can disturb fetal development and even lead to cancers. Vitamin C can also lower the risk of premature birth.
Vitamin A, B6 for baby development
The vitamin A, abundantly found in mangoes, helps in the formation of baby’s teeth and bones. It is also essential for eye and immune system development and aids in the development of heart, lungs, and kidneys.
Mango is also a source of vitamin B6, which plays a role in the development of the fetal brain and nervous system (8).
Magnesium prevents preeclampsia
Magnesium, present in reasonable amounts in mango, acts as an excellent natural remedy for preeclampsia while the vitamin E in this fruit helps build fetal muscle and prevents preeclampsia.
Beats morning sickness
The fresh taste of mango helps prevent morning sickness. Vitamin B6 in this fruit also plays a key role in relieving you from nausea and morning sickness.
Balances body fluids
As the blood volume increases during pregnancy, your body needs extra minerals. Mangoes contain electrolytes such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, and sodium that help in maintaining the fluid balance. Electrolytes ensure that your nerves, heart, brain and the muscles work as they should.
