TL;DR: In this paper, a phytochemical study on the extract of mango leaves resulted in the isolation and identification of 5 benzophenones and 17 flavonoids, including 4 new benzophenone glycosides, elucidated as 4′,6-dihydroxy-4-methoxybenzophenone-2-O-(2)
TL;DR: The extensive lethal effect of AgNPs against clinically important pathogens demonstrated that the mango flower mediated AgNPS could be applied as potential antibacterial agent to control the bacterial population in the respective industries.

TL;DR: In this article, a review of the nutritional and phytochemical profile of mango leaves has been presented, where various bio-activities of the ML extracts are also critically discussed and used as a potential ingredient for the development of functional foods and pharmaceutical drugs.
Abstract: Mangifera indica L. belongs to the family of Anacardiaceae and is an important fruit from South and Southeast Asia. India, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Pakistan, Mexico, Brazil, Bangladesh, Nigeria, and the Philippines are among the top mango producer countries. Leaves of the mango plant have been studied for their health benefits, which are attributed to a plethora of phytochemicals such as mangiferin, followed by phenolic acids, benzophenones, and other antioxidants such as flavonoids, ascorbic acid, carotenoids, and tocopherols. The extracts from mango leaves (MLs) have been studied for their biological activities, including anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, anti-oxidant, anti-microbial, anti-obesity, lipid-lowering, hepato-protection, and anti-diarrheal. In the present review, we have elaborated on the nutritional and phytochemical profile of the MLs. Further, various bioactivities of the ML extracts are also critically discussed. Considering the phytochemical profile and beneficial effects of the MLs, they can be used as a potential ingredient for the development of functional foods and pharmaceutical drugs. However, more detailed clinical trials still needed to be conducted for establishing the actual efficacy of the ML extracts.
TL;DR: Several new lead compounds were developed that could act as antioxidants and α-glucosidase inhibitors and played important roles in the anti-browning activity during food processing.
TL;DR: It is suggested that Chinese olive could be served as a healthy product for neuroinflammatory related diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, as well as remarkable antioxidant and antidiabetic activities.
TL;DR: The present results suggest that A. arguta leaves are a promising by-product when extracted by this innovative technology, being a valuable source of bioactive compounds for different industries, particularly food industry.
