A History of African Mango
Irvingia gabonensis (IG) is the Latin name of the tree grown in Central and West Africa that produces a fruit similar to a mango and nicknamed African mango. In areas where IG grows, its flesh is widely eaten. But it’s the seed or nut of the fruit that contain the powerful ingredients.
Taking the supplement 30 minutes before meals or an exercise routine can reduce appetite, lower blood cholesterol and triglycerides, reduce fat cell growth, boost the breakdown of fats, and improve blood sugar control. There are also claims that it is highly effective at sequestering fat and cholesterol and ridding them from the body. The high-soluble fiber content of IG seed can melt away belly fat and trim waistlines.
How African Mango Works
Supplements containing IG (African Mango) extract can aid in weight loss, lower blood cholesterol levels, and improve diabetes control. Researchers suggest it is the high fiber content of the seed that competes with cholesterol and helps remove it. African Mango can be used for many reasons. Most notably are its detoxifying qualities, along with the ability to regulate leptin, which tells your brain you are full. By taking African Mango regularly, you will feel fuller longer and give your metabolism that boost that it needs to lose weight.
Leptin is a hormone that the body creates to help control the appetite. If you suffer from obesity you likely have become resistant to leptin, due in part to the high levels of C-reactive protein (CPR). The CPR can bind to leptin and lessen the effectiveness of its appetite control. It appears that the African Mango lowers the levels of CPR in the body so that the leptin can control the appetite.
African Mango Summary
People who take African Mango extract, given twice daily, lost weight and had an improvement in metabolic conditions. The weight loss on average is 2-3 pounds per week or 28 pounds in a 10 week period with no diet or change to physical activity. The average person can reduce their body mass by 5-7%. If the diet is supplemented with that of one rich in nutrients, lean proteins and fresh produce the weight loss can be more dramatic.
