An overview of African Mango dieting – does it work?

The African Mango has certainly become extremely popular in recent years. Not only is it a wonderfully delicious fruit that’s grown in the Cameroon rainforests, but its seeds have become a well-known dietary supplement pill used to assist in controlling cholesterol and blood sugar levels as well as losing weight.


A random double-blind study of 40 individuals who were considered obese was given African mango while other participants in the study weren’t. The ones who received African mango demonstrated lower levels of LDL and triglycerides (bad cholesterols) and higher levels of HDL (good cholesterol). A dietitian kept weekly records of the control group while they all maintained their normal diet and calorie intake.


The results of the study suggested that the soluble fiber in the African Mango was helpful in slowing down the absorption and digestion of dietary sugars. It also suggested that the African mango fiber bound itself to intestinal tract bile acids, thus further reducing cholesterol levels.


Weight loss professionals are hailing the results of the study as positive indicators of the medicinal value of the African Mango in fighting obesity. While it may not be a silver bullet, it seems to be useful as a dietary supplement to those wanting to take inches off of their waists with an easy and all-natural pill. To top it off, the African Mango can also be useful for several other health related issues.


In another 10 week double-blind study, there were 102 obese subjects who were given 150 mg tablets of IGOB131 African Mango extract or a placebo twice each day before meals. At the conclusion of the 10 weeks, the group that was given the African Mango extract lost on average 28 pounds each, and 6.7 inches from all around their waistline, as well as reducing total body fat by 18.4%. Further medical benefits observed showed that the IGOB131 recipients reduced their cholesterol levels by 26%, their blood glucose level by 32%, and their levels of serum CRP dropped by 52%.


The African Mango may be a weight loss supplement that’s worthy of a second look. If it helps you improve or maintain your health while losing weight then you’ll be on the road to a new and healthier lifestyle. Always consult with your doctor if you’re being prescribed any type of medication before starting a regimen of African Mango supplements. Although there haven’t been any known side effects reported with the use of African Mango, it hasn’t yet been determined if it interferes with any medications.

Boosting the effectiveness of HCG

Have you heard about the HCG diet, or the power of HCG drops to help with weight loss? If so, then you might have already started taking HCG drops. Congratulations! You are well on your way to losing lots of excess weight, and becoming the person you have always deserved to be. However, at this point, you may be wondering how to boost the effectiveness of your HCG drops. Here, we will explore some tactics that you can use to do just that.

Start Exercising

Although you do not have to exercise while taking HCG drops to see them help you lose weight, every little bit helps. You may want to begin exercising regularly if you have not already. Not only can this supercharge the results of your HCG drops, but it can also help you to lose more weight, cut cravings, relieve stress, and feel much healthier, overall. You can start a structured exercise regimen, get involved in a sport you really love, or even just try to be more active in your daily lifestyle by walking more places, or playing more with your kids.

Stay Away From Certain Foods

When you are taking HCG drops, there are certain foods that you should do your best to stay away from. Dairy products are one thing that you should avoid, if possible. Many dairy products are high in calories, as well as fat. Sugars are another type of food that you should do your best to avoid. Carefully read food labels and ingredients in order to determine if sugar happens to be in any of the foods that you are consuming. Familiarize yourself with industry terms for sugar and avoid them. Also, be sure that you do not drink alcohol.

After You Stop the HCG Diet

After you stop the HCG diet, you can return to your normal activities and keep off the weight. However, you will have a better chance of keeping off the weight for longer if you continue to engage in healthy eating, and keep an active lifestyle. Again, think about what sorts of exercises you like to do, and start doing them on a regular basis. Take the stairs and walk more often. Play organized sports, go hiking with friends and family, and make active activities an important part of your overall lifestyle. Eat a diet low in fat, sugars, and processed foods.
