The African Mango is a mango-like fruit that comes from the Irvingia Gabonensis tree, a tree native to West Africa. For thousands of years, the local population used it as a staple in their diet as well as for medicinal purposes. The nut of the fruit was ground up and used for cooking, or the paste was taken on long hunting trips to stave off hunger. Only within the last 20 years has it been recognized by western culture as scientists have discovered the incredible health benefits that the people of west Africa have been taking advantage of for all this time.
Irvingia Gabonensis helps target the stubborn fat, rather than helping you lose water weight or muscle mass. Studies have shown that the extract increases fat burning through accelerating the metabolism naturally, and helping the body burn stored fat.
Leptin has been identified as a major hormone contributing to obesity. It is the hormone that tells your body it has had enough to eat. Lower leptin levels cause your body to get more cravings, which leads to overeating. When your leptin levels are raised and regulated, you do not feel the cravings to eat as much. African Mango acts as a leptin regulator, helping your body regulate the amount of leptin it needs to feel full with.
African Mango also helps to delay the process of gastric emptying, meaning your food will digest much slower. This process helps you to stay full for longer. When combined with the effects of leptin, African Mango can aid weight loss significantly.
