The African Mango Diet – As Seen on Dr Oz!
On September 13, 2010, Oprah’s favorite doctor – Dr Oz – revealed that Irvingia Gabonensis, also known as African mango diet pills, may help with weight loss.
As a part of a segment on the Dr Oz show where viewers are urged to try to lose 10 pounds in order to improve their overall health, Dr Oz recently considered the use of an alternative therapy as a part of a weight loss program. One of the things Dr Oz mentioned to be used as a weight loss supplement was Irvingia Gabonensis, AKA African mango pills.
What is Irvingia Gabonensis / African Mango Extract?
Irvingia Gabonensis is quickly becoming one of the most popular ingredients in the health supplement industry. Studies are showing the benefits of Irvingia when it comes to weight loss, high cholesterol and elevated blood sugar levels. Irvingia Gabonensis is a tree found in West and Central Africa. It is also known as the wild mango, bush mango or pure African mango. The tree is valued for its edible yellow fruit in addition to producing a dika nut. The fiber from the seed is being studied to determine if claims are valid that Irvingia Gabonensis helps with weight loss. Irvingia is similar to other nuts and seeds, in that it is high in fat content and contains 14% fiber.
While discussing ways to lose 10 pounds with alternative therapy, Dr Oz said: “There are brand new studies that have come out showing that African mango actually acts like a super-potent fiber. And because of that, it’s highly effective in sequestering cholesterol and taking it out of your body. That’s why fiber is so important for any diet that you’re on. That’s why breakfast is important, because it’s got fiber in it.”
(Neither Oprah Winfrey nor Dr. Mehmet Oz has sponsored or endorsed any brand of Irvingia or African Mango diet pills.)
Does the African Mango Diet Work?
As new as Irvingia is in the weight loss industry, more and more people are interested in discovering the validity of Irvingia’s benefits when it comes to weight loss. Current studies indicate Irvingia is completely safe and extremely beneficial as a weight loss ingredient when supplemented up to a few grams daily. Studies have also indicated African mango pills can be beneficial for overall health by lowering and balancing cholesterol levels and helping maintain blood sugar levels. By all indications, Irvingia is a great ingredient to facilitate weight loss.
