African mango (Irvingia gabonensis) has become so popular because it has been shown to help people lose weight. Also known as wild mango, bush mango, dika or ogbono researchers believe that African mango helps promote weight loss in several ways. It helps boost a person’s leptin level. Leptin is a hormone that helps suppress appetite. A hearty appetite can prevent a person from reaching their weight loss goals.
VitaClear High Strength African Mango is the HIGHEST STRENGTH African Mango in the UK with an enormous 18000mg of Irvingia Gabonensis (African Mango) Extract in each and every capsule.
African Mango seeds have very high fibre content, supporting healthy digestive and bowel function.
More recent research suggests that African mango’s positive effects aren’t just because of the fibre content alone. Scientific studies indicate that the African Mango seeds could also support digestive breakdown. Moreover, the supplement may have a beneficial support impact on the hormones leptin and adiponectin, both of which play large roles in digestive processing.
The high fibre content also explains the effects on cholesterol support. As the University of Yaoundé researchers explained, “Like other soluble fibres, Irvingia gabonensis seed fibre can bind to bile acids in the gut and carry them out of the body in the faeces, which requires the body to convert more cholesterol into bile acids. This can result in the lowering of blood cholesterol as well as other blood lipids”.
Extracts of leaves, bark, and roots of the African mango significantly inhibited bacterial and fungal growth in a lab study. Leaf and root extracts exhibited the highest antimicrobial activity.
Leaf extracts of African mango also have antiparasitic effects. In the laboratory, leaf extracts (500mg/ml) of African mango killed up to 71% of roundworm larvae.

High cholesterol is one of the major risk factors for heart disease. African mango has been shown to reduce low-density lipoprotein while simultaneously boosting High-density lipoprotein. Low-density lipoprotein is better known as the bad cholesterol because it accumulates in the arteries. High-density lipoprotein helps clean out the arteries. Researchers believe that the high fiber content of African mango is what helps lower cholesterol.
- Supports healthy blood sugar balance.
African mango helps reduce the risk of diabetes by controlling insulin levels, and keeping the blood sugar within a healthy range. Furthermore, it can also help lower blood sugar in people who already have diabetes. Since African mango lowers blood sugar levels, it should be used with caution when taken with anti-diabetic medications.
African mango also helps delay stomach emptying. This helps prevent blood sugar spikes. Blood sugar spikes can lead to food cravings. Additionally, there has also been evidence to suggest that African mango helps increase the breakdown of fat.
