African Fruit Extract Melts Away Pounds and Inches
Indeed, interest in the use of African Mango extract (irvingia gabonensis) as a safe, effective and inexpensive weight loss alternative surged after Dr. Mehmet Oz called it, mentioning no specific brand, a "breakthrough supplement" and a "miracle in your medicine cabinet" on his Emmy Award-winning The Dr. Oz Show, which aired on September 13, 2010.
Similarly, one of the show's leading medical contributors, Dr. Tanya Edwards, M.D., called African Mango extract, mentioning no specific brand, a "miracle pill" after it helped her lose 7 pounds in less than a month without making any changes to her diet or exercise routine.
According to a recent study published in the scientific journal Lipids in Health and Disease, men and women supplementing with African Mango extract for just 28 days lost an astonishing 3,990% more weight than those taking a placebo (8.9 lbs vs. 0.22 lbs)
It really does sound too good to be true!
What is African Mango?
Despite the recent frenzy surrounding African Mango and its ability to cause safe weight loss, the fruit has actually been used as a diet aid for centuries in Cameroon, Africa.5
The brightly-colored tropical fruit is native to Cameroon's west-coastal rainforests. African Mango, or Bush Mango differs from other mango fruits in that it produces a peculiar seed, which natives of Cameroon refer to as Dikka nuts.
For hundreds of years, an extract from the seeds called irvingia gabonensis has been used among Cameroon villagers for its wide-ranging medicinal benefits, which range from reducing and preventing obesity to lowering cholestrol to regulating blood sugar to treating infections.
Don't be Duped by 'Watered-Down' Products
As always, with the good comes the bad.
With the recent publicity and fanfare surrounding African Mango, it's no surprise that sites are popping up all over the Internet claiming to offer African Mango at bargain-basement prices.
However, desperate slimmers should be aware of African Mango products that use "proprietary blends" and don't list the specific amount of the active ingredient (irvingia) contained in each capsule. Experts warn that it's a well-known ploy that some manufacturers sell watered down versions of products that contain insignificant amounts of the active ingredient.
Also don't be duped by products which also contain all kinds of other herbal ingredients that have not been tested scientifically, because these other ingredients can be potentially harmful.
Finding a Quality African Mango Product
According to consumer and Better Business ratings, the Pure African Mango product offered from Applied Nutritional Research is considered one of the most effective and trustworthy, with laboratory tests certifying the product's potency and quality.
Each serving of Pure African Mango contains 1,050 mg of Irvingia — one of the highest concentrations currently available.
