Mango Combats Adverse Effects Associated With High Fat Diets

Mango, one of the most loved summer fruits, is not only an indulgence but also has anti-obesity, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and intestinal health-boosting properties, according to a recent research.

Four new studies surrounding the effects of mango consumption suggest this superfruit has the potential to help combat adverse effects associated with high fat diets and obesity (animal study), as well inhibit growth of fat cells (anti-lipogenic properties in an in-vivo study), slow advancement of breast cancer tumors (animal study), and improve regularity and decrease inflammation associated with constipation (human subject study).

"While more research is needed, especially in humans, there is a growing body of studies that suggest mango consumption may contribute to some protective effects in relation to obesity, certain cancers, gut health, and inflammation," said Leonardo Ortega, Director of Research at the National Mango Board. The research was presented at the 2016 Experimental Biology conference in San Diego.
