African Mango has become one of the world's most popular diet supplements. From the Irvingia Gabonensis tree, native to West Africa, African Mango's beneficial effects come from its Dikanut seed. Isolated extracts from this seed may provide significant benefits for long-term weight loss and healthy cholesterol levels. Some experts suggest that African Mango may help to regulate Leptin levels in the body. It is generally accepted that low Leptin levels increase hunger cravings causing you to eat more, and increasing fatigue. Leptin levels often decrease when you are on a weight loss diet and this is one of the main reasons people often find diets so hard to stick to.
