Breast Cancer Awareness: The Magic of Mangoes



October is Breast Cancer Month, and here at Africlectic we would like to share little tips you can apply to help take care of your body. Many of us may like to have mangoes, but how much?

Did you know a medium size mango-  about 3.5 g is fully packed with vitamins ranging from C, B, E, K, and A? Vitamin B-6 is required for GABA hormone production in the brain and also regulates homocystiene levels in the blood. Homocystiene is a byproduct of meat consumption found in the blood and if unregulated can lead to atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries) as well as an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, blood clot formation, and possibly Alzheimer’s disease. So meat lovers eat lots of mangoes.

The fruit is a rich source of pre-biotic, minerals and poly-phenolic flavonoid antioxidant which is also found in red wine and good for the cardiovascular system such as decreased blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels and fight cancer.
· It is very low in protein but contains about 3.7 g of pre-biotic dietary fiber, with no cholesterol or saturated fats.
· Its copper content is good for red blood cell production.
· The Mango peel is rich in phytonutrients, such as the pigment antioxidants like carotenoids. Carotenoids are good in reproductive health, have immune enhancing ability and an anti cancer and aging agent.

Mangoes for Cancer Prevention
A study by the Food Science and Human Nutrition Department, University of Florida, revealed mango juice and methanol extracts from mango inhibits the growth cycle of cancer cells. In other studies, Polyphenol extracts from mango proved effective against lung, prostate cancers, leukemia but were most effective in breast and colon cancer with no harm to normal cells. Lupeol is a compound found in mango as well as in other fruits and vegetables, which research has shown to have anti-cancer properties. A study has shown that lupeol is effective in killing pancreatic cancer cells, suppressing tumor growth and stop cancer from spreading to the head and neck.
