Both acute and chronic kidney diseases substantially contribute to the morbidities and mortality of patients worldwide. The existing therapeutics, which are mostly developed from synthetic sources, present some unexpected effects in patients, provoking researchers to explore potential novel alternatives. Natural products that have protective effects against various renal pathologies could be potential drug candidates for kidney diseases. Mangiferin is a natural polyphenol predominantly isolated fromand possesses multiple health benefits against various human ailments, including kidney disease. The main objective of this review is to update the renoprotective potentials of mangiferin with underlying molecular pharmacology and to highlight the recent development of mangiferin-based therapeutics toward kidney problems. Literature published over the past decade suggests that treatment with mangiferin attenuates renal inflammation and oxidative stress, improves interstitial fibrosis and renal dysfunction, and ameliorates structural alteration in the kidney. Therefore, mangiferin could be used as a multi-target therapeutic candidate to treat renal diseases. Although mangiferin-loaded nanoparticles have shown therapeutic promise against various human diseases, there is limited information on the targeted delivery of mangiferin in the kidney. Further research is required to gain insight into the molecular pharmacology of mangiferin targeting kidney diseases and translate the preclinical results into clinical use.
