American researchers announced that the mango fruit could stabilize the blood level in the blood and improve the general condition of people who have type 2 diabetes.
Express reports that researchers have found that the polyphenols present in mangoes have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
The researchers note, “The mango fruit contains several known bioactive compounds, such as carotenoids, tocopherols, ascorbic acid, dietary fiber, phenolic mangiferin compounds, gallic acid, and quercetin.”
The researchers selected volunteers with type 2 diabetes and added dried mango pulp to their diet. After a few months, the volunteers’ blood sugar level decreased after eating. The researchers also noted a decrease in the percentage of body fat in the majority of the volunteers.
However, researchers warn that mango is high in sugar, so patients should eat it in small amounts.
