The research is designed as a randomized, 2-arm, parallel, controlled, human clinical trial to investigate the effects of avocado and mango consumption for 8 weeks on indices of macro- and micro- vascular function in individuals with prediabetes. FMD of the brachial artery, pulse wave velocity (PWV), central blood pressure (cBP), and Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) of the eye will be used for vascular assessments. The research plan will also explore cognitive and kidney function benefits of regular avocado and mango intake using specified cognitive tasks and kidney function biomarkers
