African Mango Seed (otherwise known as Dika Nut or Irvingia Gabonensis) has been shown to be an effective weight loss aid. The soluble fibre of the seed of Irvingia gabonensis delays stomach emptying, leading to a more gradual absorption of dietary sugar. This helps reduce the elevation of blood sugar levels that is typical after a meal. Irvingia gabonensis seed fibre can bind to bile acids in the gut and carry them out of the body, which requires the body to convert more cholesterol into bile acids. This can result in the lowering of blood cholesterol as well as other blood lipids. Several grams per day of Irvingia gabonensis may help reduce total blood cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides and in some cases raise HDL cholesterol.
Some possible benefits of our raw wildcrafted African Mango Seed Powder may include:
● Effective weight loss aid
● Supporting healthy cholesterol & blood lipid levels
● Slowing absorption of dietary sugars which reduces blood sugar after meals
Suggested Use: Mix 1/2 - 1 teaspoon with juice, yogurt or add to your favorite smoothie.
