Benefits of African Mango
What are the benefits of African Mango, otherwise known as Irvingia Gabonensis? Yes, it’s an absolutely delicious little fruit filled with a sweet addicting flavor. But that’s not why it’s become so popular. It’s become almost a “household name” fruit because of its weight loss properties and enormous amount of nutrients.
Where does this new little fruit come from? The Cameroon rain forests (in West Africa). If you like mango’s then it will be eerily familiar. It has a similar taste. A similar look. But it packs much more nutrient-wise than a lot of other mango’s.
For centuries, African Mango has been used as a staple part of the diet in African bush tribes, mainly due to its effects as a natural stimulant and appetite suppressor. But until recently, African Mango remained relatively unheard of in the western world. However, after Dr. Oz featured a report about the amazing effects of the humble African Mango on his show, weight loss supplements containing extract of African Mango are soon became one of the most sought after products in the world.
Can African Mango actually help true obesity?
Ever increasing levels of obesity are linked to unhealthy diets and a lack of exercise, so it is therefore not surprising that with so many people in the US and other western countries morbidly obese, pressure on health care services is immense. However, over the last few years there have been several exciting research trials carried out on the weight loss effects of African Mango and many experts are now firmly convinced that this “superfruit” holds the key to reducing obesity in the developed world.
What health problems are linked to obesity?
Obesity causes all kinds of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, strokes, cancer, and a whole host of other life threatening illnesses.
What health and weight loss benefits are known about African Mango?
The extract that’s pulled from African Mango can help your health in many ways. In short, it helps you produce hormones that reduce hunger, boost metabolism and dissolve fat storages around the thighs & hips, stomach and buttocks. Here’s a look at them in more detail:
- Appetite suppression – during clinical trials on the effects of African Mango, researchers discovered that consumption of Irvingia gabonensis can successfully suppress the appetite by holding food in the stomach for a longer period of time, thus ensuring the body thinks it is full for longer.
- Fat burning – Irvingia gabonensis speeds up the metabolism and encourages the body to begin burning extra fat deposits. When the effects of African Mango were studied as part of a controlled research trial, the results showed that when taken in a weight loss program, African Mango supplements can help dieters lose around 12.3Ibs over the course of twenty-eight days.
- Boosts adiponectin – this is a natural hormone that regulates levels of blood sugar and insulin. Research has proven that extract of African Mango can boost natural levels of adiponectin, which helps to increase the metabolism and aid fat burning. Clinical studies have shown that people with naturally low levels of adiponectin are much more likely to be obese and suffer from related health problems such as diabetes.
- Leptin control – Leptin is a hormone in your body that contributes to how well and how fast your metabolism operates. Research has shown that weight loss is increased when participants are given Leptin injections. Unfortunately, some people develop a resistance and in essence, become immune to the effects of Leptin when there’s too much C-reactive proteins present. African Mango is impressive for weight loss, in part, because of its ability to decrease C-reactive proteins and increase the levels of Leptin.
- Detoxification – African Mango does not specifically cleanse the body of dangerous substances, but because it plays such a big role in helping you get rid of fat, which means you get more energy and feel much better overall.
- Cholesterol reduction – You know that LDL cholesterol in higher levels can be very hazardous to your health. If you can lower it, you will reduce the risk of dangerous health problems. Well guess what? Irvingia gabonensis can help you do that. In past research, it’s been shown that it can dramatically decrease levels of bad LDL cholesterol. Not only that, but it actually increases the levels of good cholesterol (HDL). Because African Mango’s fiber content quickly binds to bile acids, the molecules carrying bad cholesterol is show the back exit door (yes, that’s a polite way of saying it leaves your body).
You can probably see why African Mango weight loss supplements are being praised so highly. If you’re trying to lose weight, this is something you should definitely consider trying. However, before embarking on any weight loss plan, always consult your doctor to rule out the possibility that taking diet supplements will exacerbate any existing or previously undiscovered health issues.
