Biological effects of natural polyphenols from mango and their potential impact on human health
have become of increasing interest. The occurrence of glycosilated molecules, such as mangiferin (C2-β-Dglucopyranosyl-
1,3,6,7-tetrahydroxyxanthone), main component of the mango polyphenolic fraction, and
benzophenones, flavonoids (catechin and epicatechin), phenolic acids (benzoic and gallic), and a wide range
of derivatives, provide a high chemical complexity. In this review, the potential impact of mango polyphenols and its protective
effects on diseases associated to oxidative stress is discussed.
