Research involving animals (rats) conducted by a group of researchers led by Lucas Edralin (Associate Professor of nutritional sciences in the College of Human Enviromental Sciences, Oklahoma State University) found that mango could help to lower the percent of body fat and blood sugar control.
According to Lucas, mango high food contain fiber, vitamins A and C, as well as other phytochemical compounds and minerals. In addition, mango has a positive influence on body fat, blood sugar and blood fats, and does not have a negative influence on the bone as often happens if you use medicines such as rosiglitazone (drug-lowering blood sugar levels).
Results of the study showed that mango can reduce the level of circulating hormone leptin. The hormone leptin is a hormone produced by fat cells and the content in the blood is directly proportional to the fat content of the body. More and more of the body's fat deposits in the body's leptin levels were increased.
Leptin is also influential in setting up the appetite and energy in and out. Animal experiment on rats that were fed a high-fat foods that contain the mangos turns out to have less leptin as compared with mice that were fed a high-fat foods only.
Another study, led by Dr. Carol e. O'Neil of Louisiana State University's Agricultural Center of also shows total sugar intake in the Group consuming the mango is higher compared to that do not consume mango, but the amount of sugar that added a little more.
The adult intake of total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol a bit more low on a group that consumes mango. A group that consumes mango got the intake of vitamins A, C, B6, calcium, potassium, and magnesium were higher compared to the not eating a mango. The intake of food and fiber on carbohydrate group eating a mango is higher compared to the group that did not eat a mango.
In contrast the lower sodium intake in the Group consuming the mango in comparison with the No. Healthy Eating Index on a group that consumes mango has a higher value, which means that the group as a whole having a better diet quality.
Some physiological parameters measured as weight, blood pressure, and lipid profile showed that the Group consuming mango has a lower weight, but not too different in terms of blood pressure and blood fats. One of the results of the study showed the levels of CRP (C-Reactive Protein) were lower in the groups consuming mango compared to groups that do not consume mango.
CRP is a marker of inflammation which is associated with cardiovascular disease and other inflammatory diseases. The higher the CRP level in the body then the higher the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and inflammatory or indication of active infection.
It is remarkable, in addition to delicious mangoes in the meal but mango also turned out to be lower in fat and blood sugar levels in our bodies. Thanks I hope what I have written is beneficial to you..
