What’s a summer without a BBQ, and why not spice it up a bring something new to the table. Grilled Mango with Jalapenos. To keep the dish savoury Aaron McCargo used cayenne, lime and jalapenos, while grilling the mango balances it all as it brings their natural sugars out and leaves them tender and sweet 1.
Mango is a beautiful, sweet, soft fruit perfect for the summer. It has a wide range of health benefits. Here are few of many benefits mango has to offer;
Anti-oxidants are a powerful health benefit, recent studies have shown extracts of mango (mangiferin) to protect against breast cancer, colon cancer, and HIV. Reactive oxygen species, or ROS, which are free radical produced in normal energy production can be reduced by mangoes 2. The cells in your tissues can stay healthier for longer and may even reduce the risk of abnormal cell growth, seen in illnesses such as cancer. Mango can protect the integrity of red and white blood cells, enhance oxygen delivery, improve immunity, and overall health3.
Mango contains a high amount of Vitamin A which is known to be essential for eye health. Eating this fruit can maintain better vision and even be able to see better in near darkness4.
Carotenoids are very beneficial for skin health, keeping the skin hydrated and plump with a healthy glow. Mangoes contain high amounts carotenoids, which is why they have a vibrant colour5.
This amazing recipe by Aaron McCargo will be a hit at your next summer BBQ! It takes a total of 20 minutes, 15 minutes prep time and 5 minutes of cooking time. This will make about 6-8 servings.
All you need is:
- 3 mangoes
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Cayenne pepper, to taste
- Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
- 1 lime, halved
- 1/2 cup Mexican crema (or 1/3 cup sour cream mixed with 2 tablespoons milk)
- Thinly sliced jalapeno peppers and fresh cilantro, for topping
Then all you simply do is:
Preheat a grill to medium. Peel the mangoes and cut the flesh from the pit in large flat slices; lay on a baking sheet. Season the mango slices with salt, black pepper and cayenne and drizzle with olive oil. Turn the slices over and repeat.
Grill the mango slices, turning once, until well marked, 2 to 3 minutes total. Transfer to a platter and squeeze the lime juice on top. Drizzle with the crema and top with jalapenos and cilantro6.

What are parasites?
Parasites are an organism that live within another organism, which is the host, and the parasite benefits and survives by taking nutrients from the host 1. They are generally acquired by consuming food or water that has been contaminated with parasites. However, if you are a person with leaky gut syndrome, or have a weakened immune system the risk of acquiring parasites is higher 2.
What is an anti-parasitic
Anti-parasitics are a class of medication that are for the treatment of parasitic diseases, which are to inhibit the growth of, or to kill parasites3. There are many synthetic drugs for the use of eliminating parasites, however the parasite can inevitably create a resistance to the synthetic drugs and become ineffective. Oil of Wild Oregano is a natural antibacterial with anti-parasitic effects which has not shown to create a resistance to parasites.
How can parasites affect the host?
A parasitic relationship is where one organisms (parasite) lives off another (host), the survival of the parasite causes harm and possible death to the host 1. Generally, parasites only harm their host as it is in the parasites best interest to keep the host alive, so they can survive longer4. When you have contracted a parasite, there are a range of different symptoms you may encounter. Possible symptoms are as follows; digestive problems, irritability, chronic fatigue, acne, rashes, sleep problems, anaemia, muscle cramps, allergies and headaches5. Your body will favour genes that make them resistant to parasites due to natural selection. Unfortunately parasites are also under natural selection, resulting in a host-parasite coevolution, a continuous arms race of defence and counter-defence6.
How can Oil of Wild Oregano help?
Oil of Wild Oregano is a natural antibiotic, antiviral, and antimicrobial healer. A study showed that patients who were given a specific emulsified oregano leaf oil 200 mg orally three times daily with meals for 6 weeks resulted in eradication of Blastocystis hominis, Entamoeba hartmanni, and Endolimax nana from the stool in 10 of 13 patients7.
How to Use
Firstly, do not forget to consult with your doctor to discuss whether it is appropriate to take the Oil of Wild Oregano in light of any existing medical conditions or existing medication. .
You can take 1 to 5 drops 3 times daily of an Oil of Wild Oregano which is already diluted with a carrier oil, such as that of Solutions4Health’s Oil of Wild Oregano. You can take this in a glass of water or juice.
(It is important that this dosage relates only to an oil which is already diluted and presented for internal use).
We recommend 1 capsule per day as a general health tonic. Our capsules contain 100mg of Origanum vulgare essential oil. More can be taken to combat a particular issue; various practitioners and literature recommend a higher dosage over a short period of time to attempt to deal with the bacteria and parasites which cause the gastrointestinal issues. However, in terms of dosage and the likely benefits of the product for your specific issue, you must consult with a health practitioner.
