Excessive consumption of mangoes can lead to stomach infections. Here’s how to avoid them.
Studies suggest that the consumption of certain species may lead to throat pain or allergy (stomach pain, sneezing, and runny nose). In certain instances, consuming mangoes in excess can result in gastrointestinal problems like stomach pain, indigestion and diarrhoea.
Moreover, mangoes can lead to a spike in blood sugar so people who have diabetes should avoid consuming excess mangoes. Carbohydrate is a major part of mangoes.
“Mangoes are rich in carbohydrate such as fructose in comparison to glucose if over-consumed may create an imbalance and leads to high levels of triglycerides, sugar levels, bloating and other digestive issues like stomach pain, indigestion and diarrhoea. Few people may have allergies towards tropical fruits and may suffer from throat pain,” Dr. Edwina Raj, Head – of Clinical Nutrition Dietetics, Aster CMI Hospital, Bangalore
For some people, mangoes can contribute to weight gain due to their high calorie content. A medium-sized mango has approximately 150 calories, so if you’re trying to lose weight, it’s best to consume mangoes in moderation. Additionally, overconsumption of mangoes can cause indigestion, so it’s important to avoid eating them in large quantities.
