African Mango Promotes Weight Loss

Irvingia Gabonensis is an indigenous African tree found in Cameroon, Africa. It is also known as the bush mango or wild mango tree. Though the African Mango has recently been shown in studies to aid in weight loss, it has been used for more than two thousand years in Africa. African’s have eaten the fruity mango and tasty nuts, also known as Ogbono or Dika nuts, for years to aid in fighting off hunger and many other domestic and homeopathic uses.

 

The fruit is harvested between the months of July and September. For western Africans, this tree and its fruits serve many purposes. Natives of the land use the bark to treat diarrhea, hernias, yellow fever and even toothaches. They also believe the bark to have healing and antibiotic properties and thus ingest it or use it to treat burns and other skin irritations.

Why African Mango is an Effective Natural Weight Loss Solution

The United States first took a large interest in African Mango, in October, 2010. African Mango is also known as Irvingia Gabonensis. It has been two years since that time, and the African Mango diet is still going strong among those wanting to lose weight.

The truth of the matter is that African Mango is no secret to the people of Cameroon, Africa. The fruit can be found growing in the Cameroon rainforest and has been used by Africans to ward off hunger for centuries. It was eaten primarily to subside hunger during long hunting trips.

The magic of the African Mango comes from its seeds, called dika nuts, (also known as ogbono nuts.) The nuts are high in healthy fat proteins. The potent extract in the seed that is what is used for African Mango supplements.

Researchers studied African Mango for many years prior to the hype of 2010. In these studies, they found that the supplement helped people burn fat and lose weight much faster than with regular diet and exercise. This happens because the supplement aids in speeding up the body’s metabolism.
