What You Should Know
Genceutic Naturals African Mango Extra Strength makes claims that could qualify it for the best supplement of the year, if those claims are proven. There are only two ingredients in the formula yet the manufacturer claims dieters can lose 28 pounds in just 10 weeks. This is a huge claim that is not likely to happen for most dieters. Genceutic Naturals does not list the official ingredients clearly for the consumer, but they do list a link to buy the product three times in the product description.
List of Ingredients
African Mango Extract and Green Tea (decaffeinated).
African Mango Extract is also known as Irvingia Gabonesis. The description for African Mango Extra Strength With Green Tea says the product will decrease inches on the waist, increase the user’s metabolism and help them lose up to 28 pounds. In a search for benefits of Irvingia Gabonesis we found no such support.
Irvingia Gabonesis is a bush that bears fruit that looks like a mango. They are rich in fats and proteins, but they have no fat loss benefits. They are also a great source of fiber. The fiber content may help the dieter feel less hungry, especially when paired with the protein and fat. According to WebMD, there is some evidence that Irvingia Gabonesis may help breakdown fat cells. That is a positive, but the other ingredient in Genceutic Naturals African Mango Extra Strength may seal the deal on an ineffective supplement.
Green tea is a healthy addition to any weight loss supplement. One of the main functions of green tea is to increase heart rate just a bit. This increase, from the caffeine source in green tea, boosts metabolism. This supplement uses decaffeinated green tea. Though green tea is healthy in decaffeinated forms, it is not as effective as it would be if the caffeine were left in the supplement.
Genceutic Naturals African Mango Extra Strength sells for $39.99 per bottle.

Due to the clinical studies associated with African mango extract, we like the fact that fat breakdown may be increased. This increase will not be enough to cause 28 pounds of weight loss, however. If the green tea was included in caffeinated form, there would be an energy boost and a bit of fat burn that could boost weight loss, but that is not the case.
