African mango (Irvingi gabonensis) is cultivated from an African tree,and constitutes the edible mango-like fruit which are rich in protein and fibre, from this tree..
African mango acts on the two hormones involved in fat metabolism.
Leptin is one of these hormones which is used by the body to support appetite.When a person has had enough to eat the leptin levels rise which, in turn, reduces appetite.
Another hormone, Adiponectin is significantly increased when african mango is ingested and this supports normal blood sugars and weight management,and it may have a supportive role in retaining normal blood lipid levels also.
African mango is available in capsule form as a pure product and also in combination with antioxidants.
