The other week, a friend mentioned that I had to try African Mango, since Dr Oz mentioned it on his show. When I asked what exactly Dr Oz said about African Mango, my friend said it was some type of miracle weight loss supplement!
First, There Are No Miracle Weight Loss Supplements
I know my friend means well, but one of these days she will learn that there are no miracle weight loss supplements. If you want to lose weight, you need to watch what you eat and exercise. Period. End of story!
Still, I was interested in what African Mango was all about so I did some research. It turns out Dr Oz did a show on solutions to problems for women over 40. On the show, he said that African Mango seed extract has been shown to help women lose that extra 10 pounds. The key word here is help!
After doing a little more digging, I found the type of African Mango used in the clinical studies – it is called IGOB131. I found a supplement called Perfect African Mango that contains only IGOB 131, at 150 mg per dose, just like in the study. I will give it a try and let you know how it works. I don’t expect miracles, but any little edge could help!
