Mangoes can be useful in reducing facial wrinkles in older women: Study


A study published in the journal Nutrients by researchers at the University of California, Davis has come across wrinkle reduction features of Ataulfo mangoes, commonly known as honey or Champagne mangoes that might prove to be potent for older women with fair skin.
According to the report, postmenopausal women who ate a half cup of Ataulfo mangoes four times a week saw a 23 percent decrease in deep wrinkles after two months and a 20 percent decrease after four months.
Lead author Vivien Fam, a doctoral student in the UC Davis Department of Nutrition, said, “That’s a significant improvement in wrinkles, but the findings are very specific and come with a caveat.”
“Women who ate a cup and a half of mangoes for the same periods of time saw an increase in wrinkles. This shows that while some mango may be good for skin health, too much of it may not be,” Fam said.
Researchers said it’s unclear why consuming more mangos would increase the severity of wrinkles but speculate that it may be related to a robust amount of sugar in the larger portion of mangoes.
