Move over Weight Watchers, not to mention the health benefits
|Study: Exotic African Fruit Extract Melts Away Pounds, Inches|
|— And Weight Loss Isn't the Best Part, Say Doctors|

Move Over Weight Watchers, an exotic super fruit called 'African Mango' is quickly becoming America's hottest new way to lose weight.
And much to the chagrin of the nation's $40 billion-dollar diet industry, which sells outrageously expensive surgical procedures and drugs that have done little, if anything, to trim America's ever-growing collective waistline.
Indeed, interest in the use of African Mango extract (irvingia gabonensis) as a safe, effective and inexpensive weight loss alternative surged after Dr. Mehmet Oz called it, mentioning no specific brand, a "breakthrough supplement" and a "miracle in your medicine cabinet" on his Emmy Award-winning The Dr. Oz Show, which aired on September 13, 2010.3
Similarly, one of the show's leading medical contributors, Dr. Tanya Edwards, M.D., called African Mango extract, mentioning no specific brand, a "miracle pill" after it helped her lose 7 pounds in less than a month without making any changes to her diet or exercise routine.4 Click here to read her report.
Subjects Lost 3,990% More Weight — But That's Not the Best Part
According to a recent study published in the scientific journal Lipids in Health and Disease, men and women supplementing with African Mango extract for just 28 days lost an astonishing 3,990% more weight than those taking a placebo (8.9 lbs vs. 0.22 lbs).1
Beyond the weight loss, the volunteers taking African Mango extract 30 minutes before meals lost a stunning average of 2.4 inches from their waistlines as well as 1.8 inches from their hips — and the reduction in pounds and inches isn't even African Mango's greatest benefit, according to researchers.
Of more significance is the marked improvement in multiple measures of overall health, say the study's authors. Findings show that in volunteers supplementing with the super fruit extract, their bad LDL cholesterol, triglyceride, and glucose levels all plummeted — suggesting that, unlike many diet pills on the market, African Mango actually improves your health while promoting safe weight loss.1
What Is African Mango, and How Does It Work?
Despite the recent frenzy surrounding African Mango and its ability to cause safe weight loss, the fruit has actually been used as a diet aid for centuries in Cameroon, Africa.5
The brightly-colored tropical fruit is native to Cameroon's west-coastal rainforests. African Mango, or Bush Mango, differs from other mango fruits in that it produces a peculiar seed, which natives of Cameroon refer to as Dikka nuts.5
For hundreds of years, an extract from the seeds called irvingia gabonensis has been used among Cameroon villagers for its wide-ranging medicinal benefits, which range from reducing and preventing obesity to lowering cholestrol to regulating blood sugar to treating infections.1,5
Americans Swear by African Mango's Slimming Benefits
Tiffany Waterson, a 30-year-old mother of three from St. Petersburg, Florida, says she struggled with her weight for years until discovering African Mango.
"I gained 40 pounds with my last child, and I was already 25 pounds overweight," says Waterson. "I tried several diets and tried to stay away from the foods I loved and nothing seemed to work. I might have lost a few pounds, but it would always come back."
Waterson says she just about gave up hope of ever losing the weight until she read an article about the slimming and health benefits of African Mango.
"I read all about it and said what the heck, I'll give it a try and ordered some," says Waterson. "I have been taking African Mango for six months now, and I am down 33.5 pounds."
"All I have done is take the pills like the bottle says and drink plenty of water, and I don't eat past 8 p.m. I still eat what I have always eaten, just smaller portions. And now to tone my body up I'm doing light exercise, and I am loving my new body."
David Jefferies, a 35-year-old journalist from Columbia, Missouri, says he's experienced similar weight-loss success with African Mango.
"After just two weeks of using African Mango, I lost 21 pounds of fat, including a lot of fat off my gut," says Jefferies. "I'm amazed at how fast the weight is falling off me. Already my jean size has dropped from 36 to 32.
