The “new hotness” in the diet world is the African Mango or Irvingia gabonensis. The claims that African mango can directly cause significant weight loss and improve blood fat levels are actually being supported by scientific evidence, a series of studies by Judith Ngondi and her coworkers from the Univeristy of Yaounde in Camaroon have produced promising results.
The actual supplement is not made from the fruit of the African mango but from seed extract. Once the extract process has been completed it can be turned to powder or stay its liquid form depending on the buyer of the product.
How African mango works in a weight loss capacity is still under great study, however it has been shown that as little as 150mg twice per day could yield impressive results on body weight, fat, waist size, cholesterol and blood glucose.
