It leaves are used in ritualistic ceremonies in many countries in Asia and people have been eating the mango for millennia or thousands of years and thus have a rich history with the local populations.

The Mango is a amazing fruit rich in dietary fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C, several B vitamins and contains several trace elements and fats that are vital for a healthy life, such as potassium copper and omega3-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids. But we are here to show why adding the mango to your low cholesterol diet is a good idea so here is a study that shows the effect of what the fruit does to your High cholesterol. here is a link to this paper to show the effect of mango on cholesterol, hdl and ldl and lipid levels.

A study published in September 2001 about the suppressive effect of Mangiferine with exercise on blood lipids in type 2 diabetes. The study was performed on mice.

Materials MF was isolated by a conventional method as
previously reported.1) The structure of MF was confirmed by
the spectroscopic method.4) MF was stored at room temperature
until use.

Animals Male KK-Ay mice were used.
Under non-fasting, those with blood glucose
levels above 300 mg/dl were considered to be diabetic
and were used in this study. They were housed individually in
an air-conditioned room at an ambient temperature of
2262 °C with a 12 h light–dark cycle. The animals were kept
in this experimental animal room for 7 d with free access to
food and water.
To determine blood lipid levels, blood samples were taken
from the cavernous sinus using a capillary.

Exercise For exercise studies, KK-Ay mice were run on
a motorized treadmill, MF was administered
30 min before the exercise once a day. The administration
of MF was started at 13:00—14:00 pm. For exercise
studies, mice went without food. MF (30 mg/kg body weight)
was administered orally for 2 weeks.

Determination of Blood Cholesterol and Triglyceride
Level Blood cholesterol levels in mice were determined
using commercial reagents

the results were:

Effect of MF with Exercise on Blood Cholesterol in
KK-Ay Mice The mean blood cholesterol levels in KK-Ay
mice after oral administration of MF with exercise are shown
in Fig. 2. MF (30 mg/kg) with exercise decreased the blood
cholesterol level 2 weeks after the oral administration when

Effect of MF with Exercise on Blood Triglyceride in
KK-Ay Mice The hypo triglyceride effects of MF with exercise
in KK-Ay mice are shown in Fig. 3. MF (30 mg/kg) with
exercise decreased blood triglyceride at 2 weeks when compared
with the controls (p,0.01), MF only (p,0.05), and
exercise only (p,0.05).
