Spinach Wraps with Spicy Red Peppers & Mango Salsa

These spinach wraps are packed with great nutrients to benefit skin health. Spinach contains skin nourishing vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin K. Vitamin A improves skin tone, and Vitamin C helps in the production and repair of skin cells and collagen. Mango contains 25 different kinds of carotenoids, which help to keep the immune system strong. Carotenoids are stored in the layer of fat directly beneath the skin, and lower inflammation, protect cells from damage, boost immunity, and protect skin from damage.
