  • This colorful salsa is an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C from the mangos, watermelon, and poblano pepper.
  • These vitamins are antioxidants and help protect and fight against infection.
  • Vitamin A is also good for preserving vision, maintaining healthy skin and bones, and regular cell growth.
  • Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen, which is a tissue that connects muscle to bone, and increases iron and folate absorption.
