What You Should Know
The term African Mango is appearing on more than more diet supplements. Dr. Oz, a well-known celebrity doctor, promotes African Mango for use in a healthy, weight loss diet, thus the extreme popularity. The ingredient is also known as Irvingia gabonensis, which has been around for quite some time. African Mango Edge claims to increase metabolism and weight loss, but it may not be the African Mango that earns all the credit. The formula also contains a few other proven weight loss ingredients, though the amounts of these ingredients appear to be a mystery.
List of Ingredients
- Irvingia Gabonensis
- Green Tea Extract
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Maqui Berry
- Acai Berry
- Ginger Root Powder
All of the ingredients in African Mango Edge are in a proprietary blend. This blend hides the amount of each ingredient from the dieter. If African Mango was the only ingredient in African Mango Edge, that wouldn’t be a problem, but there are other ingredients. Green tea, for instance, should be consumed in certain clinically proven amounts to increase weight loss. The dieter knows African Mango Edge contains green tea, but they have no idea if it contains enough.
There is also caffeine in the formula, which could cause negative side effects in large amounts. The term large amount is open because some dieters can take 100 mg and feel no side effects and others feel side effects with just 50 or 60 mg of caffeine. The dieter needs to know how much caffeine is included in African Mango Edge.
The official website for African Mango Edge claims the supplement is clinically proven, but that is not the case. The clinical references used in the product description refer to Irvingia gabonensis, not African Mango Edge. There are no studies on the exact formula provided to the dieter.

- The supplement is available with free shipping and handling.

African Mango Edge contains proven ingredients, but how much of those proven ingredients are included in the formula? When a company hides the amount of proven ingredients, it takes away from the trustworthiness of the supplement. The dieter needs to know how much of each ingredient is included to compare those ingredients with clinical studies. The company also lists clinical studies for a single ingredient, not the formula sold under the African Mango Edge name. The FAQs section suggests the dieter does not have to exercise to lose weight while taking the supplement. This is not the best weight loss advice.
