Fighting Chronic Inflammation?  Let’s Take-two to Mango! Mangoes have been around for thousands of years, and you’ve probably tasted them before.  But recent research suggests that they are full of serious health benefits – so it’s time to take-two on these luscious sweet things!

What I know for sure is that they are full of vitamins (including B6 & C) and other antioxidants which help protect our cells from damage prematurely creating inflammation, and they boost our immune systems to support our health.  Mangos also are a good source of folate and iron, which is needed to support healthy cardiovascular function.

Recently at OSU, scientists discovered that mango-fed mice were able to reduce body fat, blood glucose, and cholesterol; This could possibly suggest a delicious way to sooth metabolic disorders and drop some weight.  This delicious fruit also has minerals (including magnesium and potassium) and fiber to improve overall digestion and nutrition.  Any volunteers for human trials?
