The mango tree is a tropical tree, about 40 metres high, which originated in Asia and has been cultivated for about 4,000 years. It is intimately associated with a number of deities and has a special place in religious ceremonies in India.
Although the mango tree is best known for its tasty, fleshy fruit, its leaves are also used, particularly in traditional medicine. In India, they are used in infusions such as tea, as well as for their tonic properties, ideal against fatigue.
Mango leaves contain minerals such as magnesium and potassium, as well as B vitamins and vitamin C. They also contain a specific class of polyphenols, the xanthones, of which the best known molecule is mangiferin. Polyphenols are known to limit the action of pro-oxidant molecules in various cells of the body, such as neurons for example. Studies have also shown their benefits in memory, learning and cognition.
Mango leaves contain mangiferin, a polyphenol studied by international brain research groups, among others.
