Ultra African Mango
"I. Gabonensis (known as 'dikanut' in these studies) has been studied as a dietary fibre for reducing the hyperglycemic effects and lipid metabolism disruption caused by diabetes mellitus. Adamson and his team (1986) found that giving diabetic patients a dose of dikanut preparation daily for 4 weeks reduced blood glucose levels to normal and additionally increased the activity of three ATPases, that usually fall significantly below regular levels in diabetics."
"These dietary fibres work by delaying gastric emptying and thus reducing the intestinal sugar absorption rate. This reduced rate improves the sensitivity of the tissues to insulin, resulting in increased glucose uptake. Adamson continued his studies with Omoruyi (1994) to try to work out how I. Gabonensis alters the lipid metabolism of diabetics. Adamson and his workers had previously found that the blood glucose and lipid levels of type II diabetic patients could be improved by a dose of 4g of dikanut per 100g of food."
The University of Yaounde in Cameroon, Africa in 2005 conducted a 1 month double blind study on how African Mango (Irvingia Gabonensis) helped manage obesity. In this study, 40 people were randomly selected to participate. 28 of the 40 people received 1.05g of the African Mango extract three times a day. 12 of the 40 people were given a placebo 3 times a day.
Results: The average body weight of the 28 people that were taking the African Mango extract decreased by 5.26%. The 12 people that were taking the placebo only decreased by 1.32%. The study also found in the 28 people a compelling decrease in cholesterol.
Published in the journal of "Lipids in Health and Disease", clinical studies show that African Mango (Irvingia Gabonensis) helps to dissolve an average of 12.3 pounds of fat every 28 days. Again in 2008, the University of Yaounde in Cameroon conducted a study. This study included 102 healthy, obese, and overweight people. This group was randomly divided into 2 groups which 1 group was given the African Mango extract and the other was given a placebo. The poeple were either given one capsule of IGOB131 (150mg) or the placebo 30 to 60 minutes before lunch and dinner on a daily basis.
Results: The group that was given the IGOB131 showed significant improvements in body weight, waist circumference, and body fat as compared to the placebo group.
The University of Yaounde in Cameroon, Africa in 2009 conducted another study. People were divided into 3 groups. One group tested Cissus Quadrangularis, the next group took a combination of Cissus Quadrangularis in combination with African Mango extract, and the third group took a placebo. All participants were asked to conduct current lifestyle habits.
Results: Over a period of 10 weeks they measured the people. Several factors were monitored, including body fat, and body weight. Each person was measured at 4. 8 and 10 weeks. While the group of people taking Cissus Quadrangularis showed improvements, the group of people that were combining this with African Mango extract showed significantly greater results.

One of Oprah Winfrey's favorite doctors, Dr. Mehmet Oz recently tried African Mango himself. He featured African Mango on his popular Dr. Oz television show. He only took one African Mango capsule per day and lost 7 pounds in 28 days. When introducing African Mango on his show, he called African Mango a "breakthrough supplement" and a "miracle in your medicine cabinet" as well as a "daily must" for losing weight. He now includes African Mango in his "The Just 10 Challenge" list of healthy habits you should adopt to lose weight. -The Dr. Oz Show, September 13, 2010.
