Although the blazing sun and the sweltering heat make life unbearable during the summer in India, the season also brings along its share of goodies and perks, with mango possibly being the best of them! The delectable and succulent 'king of fruits' not only serves as a sweet dish in itself when it is ripe, but is also used in several delicacies, desserts and beverages. But experts opine that although this gorgeous orange-yellow fruit is packed with several health benefits, its moderate consumption is the key to stay healthy and fit as feasting too much on this high-calorie fruit may lead to health problems.
