If you are looking for a flat belly diet drink, there is none better than this Belly Fat Diet Drink with Mango & Basil, how and why mangoes?
Well here's the scoop, mangoes are known as the fruit of the Gods, rich in vitamin C - great for bone and muscle strength, rich in fiber - great to keep your bowels moving, rich in vitamin B6, which helps in de-bloating, thereby helping you to wake up in the morning and not feel four pounds heavier and slipping on your favourite pair of jeans for that night out.
Lastly soaking mangoes in water helps in dissolving their phytic acid which is notorious for heat related breakouts.
Basil oil is known for its anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties and hence is a great herb to consume especially in the summer months.
