Irvingia Gabonensis is a tree of the family Irvingiaceae,
and is
also known as wild mango,African mango, or bush mango.
Recent studies have shown that obese people who take Irvingia gabonensis
extract lost significantly more weight than those who did not,
and benefited in other ways as well.
The extract has properties that result in weight loss and also
reduce some common risk factors for atherosclerosis and type II
diabetes. Studies in both animals and humans are showing how effective
this new supplement may be.

Irvingia gabonensis promotes weight loss in several ways.
One is through the inhibition of an enzyme called
which reduces the amount of consumed starches that the body
will absorb as sugar.

Another is by increasing the levels of beneficial Adiponectin,
a hormone that plays an essential role in metabolic abnormalities
associated with obesity, type II diabetes, and atherosclerosis.
Yet another way Irvingia gabonensis can cause fat loss is by inhibiting
glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, which helps block the amount of
blood sugar that converts to fat. Irvingia gabonensis also is associated
with lower levels of C-reactive protein and helps restore the benefits of
leptin, a hormone that turns off appetite.

When it comes to diabetes, the seeds of Irvingia gabonensis contain a
soluble fiber which acts like a bulk-forming laxative. Thus these seeds
and their extract can delay stomach emptying, which results in a more
gradual absorption of glucose (sugar) and a reduction in blood sugar levels.

Although no studies have been done with Irvingia gabonensis in people
with diabetes, controlled studies of other soluble fibers such as glucomannan
have shown that they stabilize blood sugar levels.

In a similar way, Irvingia gabonensis seed fibers can bind to bile acids
and transport them out of the body in the feces.
This forces the body to convert more cholesterol into bile acids,
which then causes a reduction of cholesterol and triglycerides.
