Mango Mangifera Indica

Mango Mangifera Indica

Chinese Pinyin: Mang Guo Latin: Mangifera Indica

Part of Herb Used: Seed

Family:

Anacardiaceae

Traditional Chinese Medicinal (TCM) Uses:*

Mangiferin (a pharmacologically active flavonoid, a natural xanthone C-glycoside) is extracted from Mango at high concentrations from the young leaves (172 g/kg), bark (107 g/kg), and from old leaves (94 g/kg).[5] Mangiferin shows an exceptionally strong antioxidant[6] capacity. It has a number of pharmacological actions and possible health benefits. These include antidiabetic[7], antioxidant, antifungal,[8] antimicrobal, antiinflamatory, antiviral, hepatoprotective[9] [10], hypoglycemic, anti-allergic[11] and anticancer activity.[12],[13]. Along with Salacia it is being investigated for its possible anti-obesity action.[14]

In ayurveda, one of its uses is clearing digestion and acidity due to pitta (heat), sometimes with other mild sours and shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) and guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia).1*
