African Mango Research
The most impressive of the African Mango clinical studies was published in Lipids Health Dis. 2009 Mar 2;8:7. This double-blind placebo investigation involved 102 overweight or obese, but otherwise healthy, adults over a 10 week period. The members of the study were asked to make no other lifestyle changes. The participants received either a 150mg dosage of IGOB131® (African Mango Seed Extract) or a placebo twice a day before meals. After 10 weeks the placebo group showed virtually no change, but the IGOB131® group lost an average of 28 pounds, 6.7 inches from their waistline and reduced body fat by 18.4%.
