In Cameroon Africa there is a rare type of mango fruit from which African mango extract is gathered. The seeds of the plant contain the element that is attributed to its weight loss properties. The extract is called irvingia gabonensis and has been used for hundreds of years in Africa and is reputed by the natives to have many health benefits.
This wonderful extract may have many medical benefits in addition to help with weight loss. The aid to weight loss occurs because the extract speeds up the metabolism in the body and this means it can help the body burn many more calories.
The seeds of this fruit have heat generating properties that help burn body fats. Obesity in this country is a national epidemic, in fact, obesity has become a problem throughout the world. Anything that can safely help control this epidemic would be worthwhile.
Research has seen compelling results in both weight reduction, body fat reduction and reduction of waist circumference with this supplement as well as a reduction in leptin (the obesity hormone) levels.
Although African mango has been studied for over 20 years in this country, it has more recently been studied for its aid in weight loss. In double blind testing the supplement showed positive clinical results also in treating insulin resistance and high cholesterol conditions.
Participants in various studies were administered 150 mg twice a day before meals. The participants results were weight reduction and an improvement within metabolic guidelines associated with insulin resistance.
Aside from the promising laboratory results, African Mango has a very low propensity for abuse. It also has been clinically proven to have no weight rebound effect.
Of course, when starting a weight loss program, one should never rely entirely on supplements alone; one must eat a healthy diet and include some exercise in order to meet weight loss goals.
Remember loosing weight is difficult and it is about using the extra weight you have accumulated as energy. You must burn calories for energy and if you do not burn more calories than you ingest you will gain weight.
To a large extent metabolism also plays an indispensable role in your health. If it is slow your body will absorb excess calories that turn to fat. This supplement will help increase your metabolism and aid in preventing your body from storing excess fat.
The research appears to be so positive regarding this supplement and there does not seem to be any adverse side effects or dosage restrictions. Seriously, what have you got to lose - maybe more weight with African Mango.
