What is African Mango?
African Mango (Irvingia Gabonensis)
is a mango-like super fruit that comes from a tree native to West Africa called the Irvingia Gabonensis
tree. This fruit is more commonly known as African Mango and has been used for hundreds of years. The seed or nut of the fruit was ground up and used in cooking. The local tribesmen used it as a staple in their diet and was also used on long hunting trips to give them endurance and starve off hunger. The genus for the plant is named after Dr. Edward George Irving, a British Royal Navy surgeon. It has only been the last 20 years that the western culture scientists have recognized and discovered the incredible health benefits. Afican Mango offers a natural alternative solution to both traditional and "fad" dieting, and requires no expensive exercise programs or expensive meal plans.
How Does African Mango Work?
African Mango acts as a fat burner and suppresses appetite. Irvingia Gabonensis helps target stubborn fat and helps accelerate the metabloism naturally by helping the body to burn stored fat. The seed is high in fiber and fat, which are both essential components in weight-loss. Fiber helps to cleanse the body of bad cholesterol and toxins while the fat helps to suppress appetite, provide neuro-support, and stimulate hormone production. The consumption of Irvingia gabonensis stimulates leptin, which is a hormone the body produces that signals to your brain that you are full. Irvingia Gabonensis also works to increase energy. Energy increases activity levels which result in an increase in caloric burn. It is a simple science. If you are burning more calories that you consume, you lose weight
In The Media
One of Oprah Winfrey's favorite doctors, Dr. Mehmet Oz recently tried African Mango himself. He featured African Mango on his popular Dr. Oz television show. He only took one African Mango capsule per day and lost 7 pounds in 28 days. When introducing African Mango on his show, he called African Mango a "breakthrough supplement" and a "miracle in your medicine cabinet" as well as a "daily must" for losing weight. He now includes African Mango in his "The Just 10 Challenge" list of healthy habits you should adopt to lose weight. -The Dr. Oz Show, September 13, 2010.
