African mango, or irvingia gabbiness, is a fruit much like
the mangoes you many have purchased at market. It is
grown in the rain forest of Cameroon in West Africa, and
the extract from the seeds have been the subject of recent
weight loss studies.
According to an article in Reuters, results of the first well-
controlled clinical trial of the extract's effectiveness in
reducing excess weight suggest that fringier gabbiness could
be a "useful tool" in the battle against obesity.
A four week study, which was conducted by researchers at
the University of Yaounde in Africa in 2005, involved 40
adults who were given 3.15 g of irvingia gabonesis 30
minutes prior to eating meals. A control group was given a
placebo of oat bran. Each subject consumed about 1800
calories a day, and did not increase their level of activity.
At the end of four weeks, the group that had taken the
irvingia gabonesis lost an average of 12 pounds each, or 5.6
percent of their body weight, compared to the control
group, who only lost 1 percent. Systolic blood pressure was
also reduced who took irvingia gabonesis.

In a later 10 week study, published by the journal Lipids in
Health and Disease, 102 overweight people were again
given either irvingia gabonesis or a placebo. At the end of
the trial, subjects who had been given the African Mango
lost an average of 28 pounds compared to the control
group who lost only 1 pound.
In addition, it was discovered after 10 weeks that these
subjects also had a notable decrease in body fat and their
waistlines were smaller by two inches, indicating its
effectiveness in the reduction of belly fat.

Another study reported a rise in the production of
adiponectin in the group taking the irvingia gabonesis. The
anti inflammatory properties of adiponectin have been
associated with a lowered risk of heart disease.
