This smoothie is an excellent addition to your daily routine. The mango and passion fruit are both incredibly high in vitamin's A and C, which help the body develop resistance to flu-like viruses and pro-inflammatory free radicals. The vitamin A is essential for good eye-sight and maintaining healthy mucous membranes and skin. Mango and passion fruit also contain carotenes which help protect against lung and oral cavity cancers.
The anti-oxidants in passion fruit are also help in treating and preventing asthma, wheezing cough and other kinds of allergic ailments. The high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C in mango and passion fruit help to lower serum cholesterol levels, specifically LDL cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol). In addition, this smoothie helps to alkalize your body - you can thank the tartaric acid, maleic acid and citric acid found in mango, passion fruit and orange, which helps maintain the alkali reserve of the body.
