Obesity continues to rise, especially in the United States. As many people struggle to lose the excess weight, they are bombarded with a plethora of weight loss supplements. Some of which do not work as promised. African Mango is one of the newer weight loss supplements on the market. Research shows that African Mango generates a thermal effect in the body and burns excess fat. The manufacturers claim that a person can lose up to 13 pounds in one month without changing their daily routine. In addition, the weight loss is permanent, so there is no rebound effect associated with the use of African Mango extract.
African Mango, also known as Irvingia Gabonesis, comes from West Africa. It is a species of trees known in South Africa as the wild mango or bush mango tree. Although it has only recently seen popularity in the U.S., the African people have benefited from the African Mango extract for centuries. The tree bears a yellow fruit, the dika nut, which looks similar to a mango. However, it is the seeds and not the fruit of the African Mango that interest researchers, as researchers found these seeds to have a high-quality fiber as well as large amount of good fats. The benefits of these seeds include weight loss and lowering both high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Published studies have shown African Mango to help reduce weight as much as 28 pounds over a teen week period, where participants took 150 milligrams of the supplement before eating. The study also showed that the participants reduced their cholesterol levels by an average of 27.3 percent while taking African Mango. This study conducted in 2009 consisted of two groups, one that took African Mango extract and one that took a placebo. The reports published showed marked differences in both the reduction of weight and cholesterol levels.
Increasing the body’s metabolism is crucial to weight loss, and African Mango aids the body in developing a good metabolic rate that helps the body burn calories without any changes in diet or exercise. The supplement boosts the body’s production of Adiponectine, which is hormone in the body that helps regulate glucose levels and promotes a healthy metabolism. Although, the African Mango does help people lose weight without these changes, it is still recommended that people eat properly and exercise to stay healthy. Research suggests that African mango is a promising supplement in the battle of obesity.
