Thai mango salad

Mangoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, an important nutrient for healthy radiant skin and for the formation of collagen, the protein that gives the skin strength and elasticity. Mangoes also contain a phytonutrient called mangiferin that has been found to have anti-inflammatory properties and heart-protective health benefits.
