Mango Seed Extract Sheds Pounds from Research Subjects

March 1, 2009: 02:59 AM EST
African mango (Irvingia gabonensis) may help people to lose weight and cut cholesterol levels by inhibiting production of body fat. An extract from the mango seeds has been shown in a recent study to affect genes and enzymes that govern metabolism. Researchers at the University of Yaounde in Cameroon found that a group of overweight people fed the extract for 10 weeks lost on average 28 pounds each, a result described as “significant”. They also showed declines in LDL (“bad” cholesterol) and blood sugar levels. The group did not follow any other special diet, and was instructed to keep to their normal exercise levels. The research was partly funded by Gateway Health Alliances, Inc., which provided the Irvingia gabonensis extract.
