Sweet and Savvy: Balancing Blood Sugar with Mango Beverages

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Mangoes are medium GI fruit and contain a combination of glucose and fructose, which can impact your blood sugar levels. While a mango drink may seem healthy, more than one portion of fruit is required for a single serving of juice which can lead to hyperglycaemic events. Additionally, juicing removes the fiber from the fruit, leaving mostly carbohydrates. This might spike blood sugar levels as the juice is quickly taken up by the bloodstream.

Stabilization of Blood Sugar Levels while having Mango Drink
• Opt for whole fruits over fruit juices. This way, you enjoy the benefits of the fruit fiber and avoid a sudden surge in blood sugar levels.
• Practicing portion control is key. Start with less portion of mangoes initially, while checking your glucose response.
• Adding protein and fiber-rich ingredients, such as Greek yogurt or chia seeds, can also slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream.

Mangoes are delicious and nutritious fruit when enjoyed in moderation. Mango drinks can impact glucose metabolism due to their high sugar content, leading to a rapid increase in blood glucose levels and insulin resistance over time. However, consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet, they can be a healthy source of nutrients.
