Eating mangoes
also keeps the heart healthy. New Research

Health Benefits, Mangoes Fruits 

A new clinical
review has revealed that eating mangoes has beneficial effects on the heart and
stomach of middle-aged women. Researchers have found that eating mangoes twice
a day has beneficial effects on systolic blood pressure in menopausal women. 

According to
the review, the blood vessels were relaxed just two hours after eating the
mango. The women who participated in this research also saw a positive change
in the production of methane gas in their breath, which meant that the
fermentation process in the intestines had a positive effect. 


Lead researcher
Dr. Robert Heckman of the University of California, Davis, said this is the
first study to show that eating mangoes has positive effects on blood vessels.
It should be noted that mango contains various compounds of polyphenols,
including mangiferin, quercetin, gallows, and gallic acid. Previous research
also focused on the nutritional components found in this fruit and believed to
be beneficial for health. 

For the new
research, 24 healthy menopausal women were fed 330 grams of mango pulp per day
(in two servings for 14 days), called Ataulfo, which was selected as containing the
highest amount of polyphenols. 

This sweet
honey-like mango is similar to Pakistani Chonsa or Chaunsa. After eating mangoes for 14
days, the women in the study resumed their normal daily diet, but for 13 days,
they did not eat any mangoes. At each visit, their heart rate and blood
pressure were measured, and blood and breath samples were taken, which are
often used to test gut health. 

There was no
significant difference in blood pressure at the beginning of the study, but as
soon as mango consumption was started, upper stool blood pressure decreased
significantly after two hours. Two hours after eating the mango, the pulse
pressure was also significantly reduced. 

It is worth
noting that the top number in the blood pressure reading is called the systolic
blood pressure, and this number shows how much pressure the blood is exerting
on the walls of your arteries when your heart pumps blood. The difference
between systolic and diastolic pressure in a blood pressure reading indicates
pulse pressure and pulse pressure can be used to determine heart health.
