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

*Cranberries are antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds may protect the brain
from age-related memory and coordination loss, according to Tufts University research. 

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.
