The African mango grows on a compact tree indigenous to the tropical rain forest of Guinea. The yellow fruit is significant for the seed, which is used in food preparations. For centuries, African mango has been used for medicinal purposes, including pain relief from the bark and diarrhea, hernia, diabetes and yellow fever treatments from seed extract and fever reduction from leaf extracts, according to Global Institute for Bioexploration. The African mango has a synergistic effect on lowering total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein and has also been shown to have weight-loss properties.
Irvingia gabonensis seed(African mango seed) Extract is naturally extracted using only the finest Irvingia gabonensis seeds.
A new study published in Lipids in Health and Disease suggests that an extract derived from the seed of West African mango may help overweight people shed kilograms, lower their cholesterol and chances of developing degenerative diseases.
Researchers in other studies found that the fruit of Irvingia gabonensis could be used to reduce abdominal fat, and stop diarrhoea and ulcer.
Lab research has shown that extracts from the plant's seed may inhibit body fat production, through effecting on certain genes and enzymes that regulate metabolism.
Effects on Cholesterol for Weight Loss
The high content of dietary fiber in African mango may lower cholesterol, which could equate to weight loss. A 2005 study published in "Lipids in Health and Disease," evaluated 40 subjects, 28 of whom were given African mango extract three times a day. After one month, the group given the African mango had lower total cholesterol, including LDL, the "bad" cholesterol, and triglycerides, as well as an increase in high-density lipoprotein levels, whereas the control group had no change in blood lipid levels.
Long-Term Weight-Loss Study
African mango seed extract fruit powder increases adiponectin, a hormone that affects glucouse and fat metabolism and increases insulin levels, prompting the body to use fat for energy, resulting in weight loss. Research was conducted at Cameroon's University of Yaounde with a test group of 72 overweight adults, some of whom were given extracts of the West African mango two times a day over a 10 week period. The results, published in "Lipids in Health and Disease" in 2008, showed significant weight loss averaging 12 kg, compared with the placebo group, which showed no change. Additionally, the magnitude of differences continued to increase over the length of the trial period.
