Golden Bay, New Zealand (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
After achieving rave reviews across the globe, featuring on popular health shows, and spending time in the limelight on the celebrity circuit, a new super supplement has hit New Zealand shelves – African Mango. NZ online retailer HealthPost currently stocks the weight-loss enhancer, favoured by numerous celebrities as well as TV health show host Dr Oz, under the brand name ‘Natural Health Trading Super African Mango 1200’.
While many diet pills and herbal supplements are quickly disproven as fads of little benefit, African Mango (also known as bush mango) appears to stand up to its claims in the face of rigorous scientific testing. A 10-week trial of 102 overweight participants showed that those who received African Mango before meals lost both weight and body fat, and also improved their waist circumference measurements. The participants’ blood was tested as part of the trial, and a number of indicators of heightened metabolic rate were also present (plasma total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, blood glucose, C-reactive protein, adiponectin and leptin levels).
This miracle supplement has been a relatively new discovery due to its rarity – African Mango pills are made from a fruit, known as irvingia gabonensis, which grows only in a small area in the rainforests of Cameroon. Contrary to common belief, the flesh of the fruit is not the active ingredient in the supplements – rather, these are made up of a substance found within the seeds. In spite of the huge amount of media buzz African Mango has been receiving in the past few months, the fruit has been hailed by the locals for several centuries as a health food and appetite suppressant.
African Mango works by delaying the emptying of the stomach, which delays digestive processes and means a feeling of fullness is retained longer. It is also a bulk-forming laxative due to its high fibre content, and promotes the removal of cholesterol from the body. While the weight-loss enhancing properties of African Mango are well known, numerous other health benefits have also been linked to its use. These include heightened energy levels and improved gastro-intestinal function, as well as lowered diabetes risk factors. Additionally, African Mango assists in maintaining glycaemic balance in individuals with diabetes.
Research trials show that African Mango will promote weight loss even when not combined with exercise, but the effects are considerably more pronounced when the supplements are used in conjunction with an active lifestyle.
African Mango is available through HealthPost under the brand name ‘Natural Health Trading Super African Mango 1200’, with two capsules providing 1200mg of African Mango. HealthPost also recommend taking a secondary supplement, Nutra-Life Thermo Trim Max, alongside African Mango to achieve the best possible results.
