What is African Mango Extract Mangiferin?
African mango, also known as bush mango, has been a staple for many tribes within Nigeria and Cameroon for years. One of the key characteristics of these tribes if their slim build and low rates of cardiovascular disease. It comes from the Irvingia gabonensis tree which is indigenous to west Africa.
There are a number of treatments which utilize the bark, kernels, leaves, and roots of this plant. The bark has been used to treat diarrhea when mixed with palm oil and for reducing the breast-feeding period. Also in areas of Africa, the stem bark is used to treat yellow fever, dysentery, hernia, and the effects of poison.
The Mende tribe in Sierra Leone uses the bark, grinding it into a paste to apply to the skin. This is a natural pain reliever which is also commonly used to treat toothaches and heal scabby skin. In certain parts of Africa, it’s also consumed to produce analgesic effects.
It wasn’t until the 1990s when scientists tapped into the key health benefits enjoyed today through supplementation. Since then, researchers have been focusing on the potent weight-loss capabilities of this fruit, aiding in metabolism, hunger, and fat burning.
Health Benefits of African Mango Extract Mangiferin
A study, led by Judith Ngondi, was published in the May 2005 edition of “Lipids in Health and Disease.” Ngondi researched the effects that dikanut extract had on the weight of individuals diagnosed with obesity. The study consisted of 40 individuals that were divided into two groups, intervention and control. The intervention group ingested the pit extract of the African mango fruit thrice daily over a 4-week period while the control group was administered placebos. The results indicated that the intervention group experienced an average weight reduction of 5.26 lbs. while the control group lost an average of 1.32 lbs. Although further research is necessary to validate these claims, the results hold promise.
In the same 2005 study, Ngondi also noted that the subjects placed in the intervention group exhibited a significant reduction in blood lipid levels, which include triglycerides and LDL cholesterol. Furthermore, the participants’ level of high density lipoprotein, otherwise known as the “good” cholesterol, showed marked improvements. The placebo group, on the other hand, exhibited no alterations to blood lipid levels.
Another study, published in the March 2009 edition of “Lipids in Health and Disease,” also conducted by Ngondi, reported that the extract of the dikanut may help to improve blood-glucose levels in patients diagnosed with diabetes. The study was performed over a 10 week period and consisted of 100 overweight individuals. Similar to the previous study in 2005, the subjects were divided into two groups, intervention and placebo. The results indicated that African mango does have a positive impact on blood-glucose levels; however, further research is required.
