Brief Summary:
This study aims to investigate the effects on 16 weeks of mango intake on skin health in postmenopausal women. Half of the participants will receive 85g portions of mangoes while the other half receive 250g portions of mangos. Participants will be instructed to consume the specific portion 4 times a week, for a total duration of 16 weeks.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Wrinkle Skin Red Other: 16 weeks mango intake Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Mangoes are rich in carotenoids, flavonoids, vitamins and other active phytochemicals such as resistant starches. Although a role of mangoes in skin health has long been advocated in traditional medicine, little scientific research has been conducted.

We hypothesize that 85g (0.5 cups) of mango intake for 16 weeks will have minimal impact on skin health, while 250g (1.5 cups) of mango intake will produce significant benefits.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Skin Wrinkle Depth and Redness [ Time Frame: 0, 8, and 16 week ]
    Using a skin camera from BrighTex Bio-Photonics to measure change in skin wrinkle depth and redness within a period of 16 weeks.

  2. Skin carotenoid [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12, and 16 weeks ]
    Using a skin photometer (Veggie Meter) to measure change in skin carotenoid within a period of 16 weeks.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Sebum [ Time Frame: 0, 8, 16, weeks ]
    Sebum will be collected with sebutapes from the face and stored for possible further analysis.

  2. Plasma carotenoid [ Time Frame: 0, 8, 16 weeks. ]
    Plasma samples will be collected and stored at -80C for possible further analysis
