    African Mango seed extract IGOB131 causes weight loss of 28 lbs in 2.5 months? I don’t believe it.

    A new study claims that a West African Mango seed extract called IGOB131 caused a weight loss of 28 lbs in 2.5 months without diet and exercise versus a weight loss of 1.5 pounds in the placebo group.

    I don't believe it.

    In the video, I show you exactly why I don't believe the study. REFERENCE

    Ngondi J, Etoundi B, Nyangono C, Mbofung C, Oben J. Igob131, a novel seed extract of the west african plant irvingia gabonensis, significantly reduces body weight and improves metabolic parameters in overweight humans in a randomized double-blind placebo controlled investigation. Lipids Health Dis. 2009, 8:7.

    I don't think anybody would pay to try and disprove a study like this.

    There is no financial incentive to do so.

    The mango seeds come from Cameroon, Africa -- the same place where the study was done.

    It seems possible to me that the people of Cameroon heard that the people in Southern Africa were making tons of money from Hoodia, and so they are trying to find something they can sell for weight loss that will bring them lots of money as well.
