Eastern Health Description

Mangoes are considered a yin tonic, providing moistening fluids for the body and quenching thirst. They are cool, sweet and sour. Mangoes are alterative (blood purifying), antiseptic, diuretic and laxative. Mangoes have been used to treat anemia, bleeding gums, constipation, cough, cysts, fever, hypertension, indigestion, nephritis (kidney inflammation), weak digestion, nausea, clogged pores, respiratory ailments, and seasickness. Mangoes calm the emotions, benefit the brain, strengthen the heart, and provide energy

Western Health Description

Mangoes are rich in amino acids, beta-carotene, niacin, vitamin C, flavonoids, vitamin E, calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium. They are high in pectin, which is useful in lowering blood cholesterol levels. In "Plants Against Cancer" Hartwell describes mango as rich in phenols and enzymes with cancer preventative and cancer healing qualities.
