American nutritionists confirmed the ability of mango to influence the process of digestion at the biochemical level. U.S. experts say that consuming mango regularly helps to cope with poor metabolism.
Within three months, experts were supervising the volunteers’ diet. Their blood was taken for medical analysis at different stages of the experiment. It has shown that people who love mango and eat it often, have lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels. The volunteers consumed mango extract twice a day for 10 weeks, not adhering to any special diet and leading a normal life.
The effectiveness of mango in improving metabolism is due to many factors. For example, the fruit contains a large amount of water and mineral substances that improve liver functioning. An active and healthy liver helps the body digest faster, supports the activity of other excretory systems.
The U.S. research was supported by that of the University of Queensland, Australia, where it was found that mango should be eaten unpeeled. It turned out that mango peel contains phytochemicals that inhibit the activity of human fat cells, preventing the growth of the fat tissue.
In addition, experts have noted that the substances contained in mango strengthen the immune system, increasing its protection against various infections and enhance the body’s resistance to skin cancer and prostate cancer.
