General description

Mangiferin (MGF) is a natural bioactive polyphenol predominantly isolated from the Mangifera indica (Mango) tree. It has a xanthone glucoside structure. Mangiferin can also be found in other angiosperm plants and herbs.


Mangiferin has been used:
  • as a reference standard for the characterization of mangiferin from Mangifera indica using ultrasound with three-phase partitioning (UTPP)
  • to study its effects in promoting brown adipose phenotype murine C3H10T1/2 mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and its role in mitochondrial biogenesis and homeostasis
  • as a reference standard for the quantitative determination of markers compounds in the culture Swertia paniculata shoot culture using high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC)

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mangiferin has various pharmacological properties including antioxidant, anti-diabetic, anti-bacterial, cardioprotective, neuroprotective, and immunomodulatory activities. It has also displayed antidiabetic, antihyperlipidemic, and antiatherogenic properties in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. MGF exerts chemotherapeutic and chemo-preventative activities. It displays antioxidant, analgesic, and hepatoprotective activity against carbon tetrachloride-induced liver injury. MGF is a known accelerator of gastrointestinal transit (GIT).
