Benefits of Wild African Mango for Weight Loss

African mango (Irvingia gabonensis) has become so popular because it has been shown to help people lose weight. Also known as wild mango, bush mango, dika or ogbono researchers believe that African mango helps promote weight loss in several ways. It helps boost a person’s leptin level. Leptin is a hormone that helps suppress appetite. A hearty appetite can prevent a person from reaching their weight loss goals.

African mango also helps delay stomach emptying. This helps prevent blood sugar spikes. Blood sugar spikes can lead to food cravings. Additionally, there has also been evidence to suggest that African mango helps increase the breakdown of fat.

Weight loss

There was a clinical study done back in 2005 found that those who participated in the study and took the African mango extract lost about 5% of their body weight in 30 days by simply taking the extract without following any strict calorie controlled program.

So what exactly is African mango?

African mango is a tree that is native to West African countries. The seeds from this tree are used to make medicine. There have been numerous studies done on African mango, and researchers have found that it can potentially offer a number of health benefits, apart from just weight loss. Below are some of the benefits of using African mango:

Lower cholesterol

High cholesterol is a problem that affects millions of people worldwide. High cholesterol is one of the major risk factors for heart disease. African mango has been shown to reduce low-density lipoprotein while simultaneously boosting High-density lipoprotein. Low-density lipoprotein is better known as the bad cholesterol because it accumulates in the arteries. High-density lipoprotein helps clean out the arteries. Researchers believe that the high fibre content of African mango is what helps lower cholesterol.

Lower blood sugar & prevent diabetes

The number of people being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes has increased drastically over the past few years. Diabetes also puts a person at an increased risk of developing heart disease. African mango helps reduce the risk of diabetes by controlling insulin levels, and keeping the blood sugar within a healthy range. Furthermore, it can also help lower blood sugar in people who already have diabetes.

Relief from constipation

Most people have experienced constipation at some point in their lives. Not only is constipation very uncomfortable but it can also lead to weight gain. Because African mango is rich in soluble fibre it can add bulk to stools, which can help alleviate constipation.

Our Wild African Mango Drops also contain other essential amino acids which help detoxify, increase stamina and energy levels, repair your body all while supporting emotional well being:

L-Carnitine – plays a critical role in energy production. It transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria so they can be oxidized (“burned”) to produce energy. … Given these key functions, carnitine is concentrated in tissues like skeletal and cardiac muscle that utilize fatty acids as a dietary fuel

L-Ornithine – Crucial for removal of bodily wastes, and some research also suggests this amino acid may help boost your energy level and provide your body with other significant benefits.

L-Arginine – This has multiple benefits, including improving immune function, fertility, detoxification and brain power. Another important aspect of L-arginine is that it stimulates the production of certain hormones, especially beneficial growth hormones and insulin that help usher glucose into cells to be used for growth and energy output. This is one of the reasons it’s believed to enhance physical performance, stamina and strength.

L-Glutamine – Counteracts the storage of dietary fats and thus helps regulate weight. One study showed that supplementation with glutamine in a high-fat diet resulted in a loss of body fat. Furthermore, glutamine can reduce cravings for sugar and alcohol. The B-vitamins and zinc are also important for fat burning.
