Health Benefits of Taco Ingredients


Cabbage may aid in digestion because it contains insoluble fiber! This type of fiber increases the bulk of your stool, which helps it pass along your digestive tract. Fiber also helps feed your healthy gut microbes, which is important for lowering inflammation and supporting your immune system.


Cilantro is an incredible herb! One of my favorite health benefits of cilantro is that it supports your liver, which is your natural detox organ! It also contains supports gut health, which is essential for digestion and immunity!


Mangos are loaded with tons of vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, copper, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin K and vitamin E. Copper is important for a variety of bodily function such as the production of connective tissue, blood vessels and helping the body produce energy.
