Why Irvingia Gabonensis Is Used in Weight Loss Supplements

The African Mango, known for its extract of Irvingia Gabonensis, is a tree native to the West and Central parts of Africa. It is a tree which all living creatures can benefit from – starting from the roots all the way to the fruits.

·         Primarily, the Irvingia produces a mango-like fruit that is used as a food source by the locals.
·         The center of the fruit is the home of the dika nuts that are the source of an extract that is believed to contain many healthy properties.
·         The wood from the said tree is popularly used in construction because it is resistant to termites. Things built with wood from this kind of tree do not ever run the risk of being invaded by these pesky bugs.

·         One of the most popular uses for the African mango extract this day and age is as an additive in natural weight loss supplements. More than a few studies have been conducted in different parts of the world to verify the medical properties associated with the mango extract. Participants in these studies were shown to have lost a considerable amount of body fat, as well as lowered bad cholesterol levels. In addition, good cholesterol levels of the participants were overall increased. Because of these studies, many natural diet products now contain the African mango extract and are becoming increasingly popular among dieters worldwide. Since Irvingia delays the emptying of the stomach, it then allows the absorption of dietary sugars which help reduce blood sugar levels after eating.
