    Irvingia gabonensis


    This looks promising, thinking of picking up a couple bottles.

    Any comments, experience?

    The study done on the fat cells in a petri dish could be good, but I cannot count the number of studies I have read where something works in vitro and is then disproven in vivo. The study on humans looks good though.

    I dont know if it is a triple threat....but im sure it does work in some way

    Interesting. So far Im not buying it as with my searches I cannot find a trustworthy standardized extract. I found "prop" blend that uses 150mg from more known companies such as futurbiotics, and then I find much cheaper formulas that I can get for $8 shipped that uses 1.2 grams of Mango notably by SBS Labs.

    Im going to hold off for now until a better company comes out with a standardized extract or if I find one. Cant just trust any 3rd world country products even if their bottling is in the USA.

    African mango (Irvingia gabonensis) has been on my "to do" list for awhile, not for weight loss, but for it's purported cholesterol/blood pressure benefits.

    I dont think so, I just checked and couldnt find anything. I went to their website too and they are only listing 1 product so maybe they has one in the past and they are going through a transitional phase. They are named Enhanced Body Formulations now as well.

    Youd need more than 300mg for sure, which is the whole blend itself

    Was just perusing medline on this because I thought I had previously looked into it and was unimpressed. However I noticed the following:

    ****ty journal but decent university:

    Irvingia gabonensis fat: nutritional properties and effect of increasing amounts on the growth and lipid metabolism of young rats wistar sp.

    Abstract

    BACKGROUND:

    Dietary saturated fatty acids (SFAs) are generally considered to increase plasma cholesterol. It has also been claimed that they increase cardio-vascular disease, although the claim that some of SFAs can increase HDL-cholesterol is poorly documented. Irvingia gabonensis kernels after being dried and crushed they are generally used to prepare a sticky and aromatic soup very much consumed in Cameroun and West Africa countries. This study was therefore aimed at evaluating the effects of dika nut fat on the growing and lipids metabolism of young rats.

    METHOD:

    For The nutritional evaluation related to the performances of growth and the analysis of increasing amounts of dika nut fat (0; 5.1; 7.34 and 13.48%) in young rats of wistar sp. The animals were taken individually out of metabolic cage for each ration 5 repetitions per sex (males and females) were carried out.

    RESULTS:

    The results obtained during the 3 weeks of treatment shows that the performances of consumption were positive. A highly significant increase (P<0.01) of serum cholesterol and triglycerides in the high dose fat groups (13.48%) of dika fat were observed compared to control groups. However, this rise of cholesterol is due to that of HDL-cholesterol without any change in the quantity of LDL-Receptor. In parallel, the weight of the vital organ did not vary much compared to control, except for males where we observed a significantly reduction (P<0.01) in the weight of the liver for the three diet tests.

    CONCLUSION:

    This study shows that the increasing amount of dika nut fat alter significantly cholesterol and triglyceride at high dose diet, but also increase HDL-cholesterol.

    An evidence-based review of fat modifying supplemental weight loss products.

    Abstract

    Objective. To review the literature on fat modifying dietary supplements commonly used for weight loss. Methods. Recently published randomized, placebo-controlled trials were identified in PubMed, MEDLINE, International Pharmaceutical Abstracts, Cochrane Database, and Google Scholar using the search terms dietary supplement, herbal, weight loss, obesity, and individual supplement names. Discussion. Data for conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), Garcinia cambogia, chitosan, pyruvate, Irvingia gabonensis, and chia seed for weight loss were identified. CLA, chitosan, pyruvate, and Irvingia gabonensis appeared to be effective in weight loss via fat modifying mechanisms. However, the data on the use of these products is limited. Conclusion. Many obese people use dietary supplements for weight loss. To date, there is little clinical evidence to support their use. More data is necessary to determine the efficacy and safety of these supplements. Healthcare providers should assist patients in weighing the risks and benefits of dietary supplement use for weight loss.
