Strawberry Mango Water–Skin, Cholesterol, and Eye Health

I’m back again with another naturally flavored water.  This time it’s Strawberry Mango Water.  If you tried my and thought it was too strong then this one might be right up your alley!   The flavor is much more subtle and most of the “flavor” seems to come first from the delicious smell.  Strawberries and Mangoes are both very fragrant fruits so the water smells delicious even before it touches your taste buds!  As always there are health benefits to this water as well as just tasting fantastic!  This is an easy way for me to drink less sugary drinks and more water throughout the day!

Strawberry Mango Water

You can read the details below but this water is great for eye health, helps to fight bad cholesterol and also helps your complexion and skin be their best!  So not only are you getting your daily water intake that so many of us neglect ourselves of {myself included!!} but you are also giving your body extra nutrients at the same time.  You all know I love multi-tasking things!  ;-)

Mango Strawberry Water

Benefits of Strawberries:

  • Nutrient-rich and packed with antioxidants like Vitamin C.
  • Our eyes require vitamin C to protect them from exposure to free-radicals from the sun’s harsh UV rays, which can damage the protein in the lens. Vitamin C found in strawberries also plays an important role in strengthening the eye’s cornea and retina.
  • Vitamin C is one of the antioxidants that can help with cancer prevention
  • Anti-Wrinkle:  Vitamin C is vital to the production of collagen, which helps to improve skin’s elasticity and resilience.
  • Fight Bad Cholesterol AND strawberries provide an anti-inflammatory effect, which is also good for the heart

Benefits of Mangoes:

  • Prevents Cancer: antioxidant compounds in mango fruit have been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. These compounds include quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat, as well as the abundant enzymes.
  • Lowers Cholesterol:  The high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C help to lower serum cholesterol levels specifically LDL (the bad kind)
  • Mangoes can be used both internally and externally for the skin.  Mangoes clear clogged pores and eliminate pimples leaving fresh clear skin.
  • One cup of sliced mangoes supplies 25% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A, which has been found to promote good eyesight and prevents night blindness and dry eyes!

Strawberry Mango Flavored Water

Note:  The fruit will swell from the water after about 8 hours and not look very appealing.  If you are letting this sit longer than 8 hours, I would recommend replacing the fruit before serving for a more visually appealing drink.

The fruit swells from the water. If serving more than 8 hours from the time you make it, I recommend replacing the fruit in the pitcher with fresh fruit for a more visual appealing presentation.
