Mangoes are the king of fruits. But many of us do not know that it offers not only a taste blast but also a number of health benefits.

Mangoes have numerous compounds that have antioxidant properties. These compounds include vitamin C and beta carotene, as well as several polyphenolic compounds including Gallic acid and their larger polymers gallotannins that have been linked to anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory activities in previous in vitro and in vivo studies.

The absorption, metabolism, and excretion of mango galloyl derivatives have not previously been investigated in humans.

In this human pilot trial published in the journal of Molecular Nutrition & Food Research, 11 healthy volunteers between the ages of 21 and 38 years old consumed 400g/day of mango-pulp for 10 days, with blood and urine samples taken on days one and 10 of the study following mango consumption.
