Mango Breast Cancer Treatment

Mango can assist in a holistic cancer treatment. Mango will not cure cancer alone but in combination with other herbs, juices and therapies, mango will boost cancer treatment effectiveness.

Recent research says, that the mango is a potent and very powerful cure for breast cancer and colon cancer.

Laboratory research discovered that polyphenols, (natural substances, anti-oxidants, that are free radical scavengers and promote health) present in the fruit were assessed in patients suffering from breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and leukemia. These polyphenols showed significant beneficial effects on breast and colon cancers, while they had a weaker effect on prostate cancer and leukemia.

In an “unexpected and groundbreaking discovery,” scientists at the Texas A & M University have discovered that mango extracts can prevent, if not stop, the growth of breast and colon cancer cells. Susanne Talcott and her husband Steve conducted the trial and examinations.

“It has about four to five times less antioxidant capacity than an average wine grape, and it still holds up fairly well in anticancer activity. If you look at it from the physiological and nutritional standpoint, taking everything together, it would be a high-ranking super food,” she said. “It would be good to include mangoes as part of the regular diet.”

The Talcotts tested mango polyphenol extracts in vitro on colon, breast, lung, leukemia and prostate cancers. Polyphenols are natural substances in plants and are associated with a variety of compounds known to promote good health.

“Mango showed some impact on lung, leukemia and prostate cancers but was most effective on the most common breast and colon cancers…The study found that the cell cycle, which is the division cells go through, was interrupted. This is crucial information, Suzanne Talcott said, because it indicates a possible mechanism for how the cancer cells are prevented or stopped.”

“What we found is that not all cell lines are sensitive to the same extent to an anticancer agent,” she said. “But the breast and colon cancer lines underwent apotosis, or programmed cell death. Additionally, we found that when we tested normal colon cells side by side with the colon cancer cells, that the mango polyphenolics did not harm the normal cells.”

The duo did further tests on the colon cancer lines because a mango contains both small molecules that are readily absorbed and larger molecules that would not be absorbed and thus remain present in a colon.

“We found the normal cells weren’t killed, so mango is not expected to be damaging in the body,” she said. “That is a general observation for any natural agent, that they target cancer cells and leave the healthy cells alone, in reasonable concentrations at least.”

The Talcotts evaluated polyphenolics, and more specifically gallotannins as being the class of bioactive compounds (responsible for preventing or stopping cancer cells). Tannins are polyphenols that are often bitter or drying and found in such common foods as grape seed, wine and tea.

The study found that the cell cycle, which is the division cells go through, was interrupted. This is crucial information, Suzanne Talcott said, because it indicates a possible mechanism for how the cancer cells are prevented or stopped.

“For cells that may be on the verge of mutating or being damaged, mango polyphenolics prevent this kind of damage,” she said.

The Talcotts hope to do a small clinical trial with individuals who have increased inflamation in their intestines with a higher risk for cancer. “From there, if there is any proven efficacy, then we would do a larger trial to see if there is any clinical relevance,” she said.

Another research was conducted at Indian Toxicology Research Institute (ITRC), Lucknow based on experiments conducted in the USA scientists believe that mango inhibits pancreatic cancer and regulated a number of processes involved in cancer development.

Lupeol is the wonder anti-oxidant found in mangoes, which can prove highly beneficial in heart diseases, cancer and ageing. This anti-oxidant is formed in mangoes as a result of heat and water effect by nature.

Mangoes Health Benefits

Mangoes are very good for the entire digestive system. They contain a number of enzymes which improve and pep up digestion and assimilation, and aid in good bowel movement. Studies have shown, mangoes offer protection against various infections. Clinical trials and investigations have found out that the fruit helps check intestinal infections and diarrhea. Mangoes offers tremendous protection against the microbe giardia, which causes traveler’s diarrhea. The fruit is also a potent anti-viral.

Mangoes fight anemia (low levels of hemoglobin). They have a very high content of iron in them and are good blood builders. They are highly beneficial for women, especially, during the period of pregnancy and menstruation, when there is major blood loss.

Mangoes are loaded with the mineral potassium. Thus, they are of significant value in the management of muscle cramps. Mangoes helps in gaining weight and removes instant debility, prevent heat stroke, provides immediate relief and subdues the nauseating and vomiting tendency, removes anorexia and improves appetite and it will help in countering sleeplessness.

Mangoes Precautions

In a few individuals, excessive intake of mangoes can invite gastric problems, itching and redness in eyes, indigestion, heat in blood, loose motions and even anal pain. Thus, mangoes should always be consumed in moderate quantities. If you experience this symptom do not include mangoes to your diet.

Mango Treatment Recommendation

Do not take mangoes during the juice fast as they will impede catabolism (due to the high sugar content) which is important for holistic cancer treatment. Mangoes are perfect for post treatment, after the juice fast. Mangoes are amazing in a fruit salad or blend it with papaya.
