Clinical trials show African Mango is effective aid in weight loss!
The key weight-loss ingredient in African Mango Meltdown, Irvingia Gabonensis, is backed by scientific research and clinical studies not to mention countless individual success stories from people just like you!
In a breakthrough that could reverse the global obesity epidemic, the natural compound Irvingia Gabonensis – also known as African Mango extract – has been discovered to circumvent the molecular factors involved in obesity.
“More weight loss than any other discovery in supplement history,” declared William Faloon, Director of the Life Extension Foundation1 (a global authority on nutrition, health, and wellness).
“For once, the claims that African Mango can cause significant weight loss and even improve blood fat levels,
are being supported by some scientific studies,” reported the “Diet Doc” Dr. Ingrid van Heerden2 (registered dietitian and award-winning scientific reporter).
The two most significant studies to date – both conducted by Drs. Judith Ngondi, Julius Oben, and their colleagues
from the University of Yaounde in Cameroon – show that Irvingia Gabonensis lowers body weight and favorably
effects several metabolic parameters in overweight individuals. The details of these studies are provided below.
The first double-blind research study of Irvingia Gabonensis (African Mango extract) in humans took place in 2005, comparing participants taking Irvingia Gabonesis to a control group on a placebo. All subjects maintained their normal calorie intake.
After 30 days, the participants taking African Mango extract lost an average of 12.3 pounds. On average, subjects taking Irvingia Gabonensis lost 5.3% of their body weight, while the control group only lost 1.3%, which represents a significant difference in weight loss between the two groups. At the same time, the African Mango extract group also exhibited significant reduction in their waist measurements compared to the control group.
The study was published in the May 2005 issue of the journal Lipids in Health and Disease. Read the details from the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15916709
Remarkable results were also found in a second, larger clinical trial of Irvingia Gabonensis (African Mango extract) in 2009. Over a 10-week period, otherwise healthy overweight and obese participants took either Irvingia Gabonesis (150 mg twice daily before meals) or a placebo, while making no other changes to their diet and exercise levels.
By the end of the study, those using African Mango extract had lost a significant amount of weight – an average of 28 pounds – while the placebo group lost virtually no weight (~1.5 pounds). The researchers found that the subjects in the African Mango extract group experienced “significant improvements in body weight, body fat, and waist circumference”. They had a 13.1% decrease in body weight, shed 6.7 inches from their waistline, and reduced their total body fat by 18.4%.
According to the researchers, Irvingia Gabonensis “safely and significantly reduces body weight in overweight and/or obese subjects, and has a favorable impact upon a variety of other metabolic parameters.”
The researchers also noted that cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels improved significantly compared to the control group. These remarkable blood marker changes reveal specific mechanisms responsible for the profound weight-loss effects observed in participants taking Irvingia Gabonensis. These beneficial changes would also provide considerable protection against diabetes and cardiovascular disease beyond the fat loss benefits.
The study was published in the March 2009 issue of the journal Lipids in Health and Disease. Read the details from the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19254366
