Could mango be the next “superfood?” Recent study findings presented at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) indicate that eating mango could impact blood sugar levels in a positive way as well as have anti-inflammatory properties. Dr. Edralin Lucas of Oklahoma University found in a recent study that incorporating mango into the diet could potentially help with weight and blood sugar. That’s right, this sweet treat might actually improve your blood sugar levels. In addition, Dr. Susanne Mertens-Talcott of Texas A&M University found that mango polyphenols may have anti-inflammatory properties.
What does this all mean? More studies need to be done and nothing is conclusive, but we can conclude this: eating whole foods is always a good thing and mango may have added benefits beyond pure, sweet deliciousness!
