African Mango, Irvingia Gabonensis, IGOB131 – What Does It All Mean?
The African Mango grows in…wait for it…Africa! To be more specific it tends to grow in the tropical jungles of Cameroon. As much as we love how easy it is to pronounce African Mango, we need to level with you, African Mango is not the real name of the plant. Irvingia Gabonensis is the actual name of the fruit bearing plant – I know, it doesn't exactly roll off your tongue.
You may see articles online talking about weight loss and African Mango, Irvingia, Irvingia Gabonensis, Bush Mango or Wild Mango – just understand they are all just different names for the same fruit.
As you can see in our heading, we also list one other name – IGOB131 – catchy, isn't it? Actually IGOB131 is a patented extract of Irvingia Gabonensis seed kernels. Don't worry, we will talk more about this later, we just wanted to get some of the boring terminology out of the way.
Does Eating African Mango Help You Lose Weight?
No. It turns out that the African Mango, while tasty, does very little to help with weight loss. However, those tiny seeds inside the African Mango may very well help you lose some weight! Here are the results of a clinical study done on the IGOB131 we discussed above –
Clearly, these are very impressive results. It was just one study, and we would love to see a larger sample used, but this starts to explain why so many people are talking about Irvingia and weight loss.
Why Is African Mango Suddenly So Popular?
Clearly it is because everyone reads the riveting, exciting, can't put it down - Lipids in Health and Disease Journal that the above study was published in! Hey, you can't fault us for dreaming. No, African Mango is all the talk because everyone's favorite TV doctor – Dr. OZ – mentioned it on his show.
There is so much misinformation and exaggeration on the web when it comes to talking about Dr. Oz and what he does and does not say. We are going to keep things very simple and let you read the two references for yourself –

So African Mango Really Is The Magic Weight Loss Pill?
Of course not! Nothing is going to help 100% of the people lose weight 100% of the time, especially without changes to diet and exercise. Still, African Mango has us intrigued enough to want to learn more-like how does it really help with weight loss? Is it an appetite suppressant? A fat burner? A carb blocker?

We have a love/hate relationship with supplements. We love healthy and pure Organic Supplements that offer the best nutrients from Mother Nature. We hate fraudulent, over hyped, low quality supplements that prey on your health fears and are a complete waste of your money.
We believe that a healthy supplement is one that helps everyone who touches the supplement. The growers, the workers and you the end user, should all benefit from the supplement.
Do Organic Supplement Really Have More Health Benefits
We can debate just how dangerous pesticides are to people and the planet – but clearly we would all prefer to have fruits, food and supplements that were free of any harmful pesticides.
Does Anyone Want to Take
Grab a bottle of any vitamins or supplements you have in the house and take a look at the "Other Ingredients" or "Inactive Ingredients". Odds are you will see something called Magnesium Stearate.
From Plant to Powder –
The Wrong Way to Do It
Do you live in the Amazon Rainforest? Can you roll out of bed, shimmy up a 30 foot Acai Palm Tree and pick your own, fresh, organic Acai berries?
In this article we are going to look at how organic plants and fruits go from nature to a supplement…and how all that can go wrong.
The Real Deal on Organic Vitamins
It should come as no surprise that Best Organic Supplements is a big fan of certain Organic Vitamins. What may be more surprising to learn is that we feel some Organic Vitamins are completely useless and a waste of your money!
Spirulina and Chlorella –
Like Peanut Butter and Jelly
Some things were just made to go together – peanut butter and jelly, waffles and ice cream, Spirulina and Chlorella. Both wonderful on their own, become super fantastic when mixed together!

Raspberry Ketones vs. African Mango
Dr. Oz recently introduced two weight loss supplements to America, claiming that Raspberry Ketones is “The #1 miracle in a bottle to burn your fat” and African Mango is “A miracle in your medicine cabinet” that will help you lose weight.
