I mostly remember when I lived in Africa running wild, and I could not get enough to eat Mangoes. African mango (Irvingia gabonensis), also known as bush mango, is indigenous to Africa. It has a fleshy fruit often used to make wine, and it is a good source of fat, carbohydrates and fiber. All parts of the plant can be used, but the kernel or seed is the part that is utilized the most for medicinal purposes.~healthyeating

In a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, people who drank a glass of unsweetened cranberry juice a day increased their HDL, or good, cholesterol by about 10 percent.
