Do African Mango Supplements Help with Weight Loss? ConsumerLab.com Investigates the Evidence

White Plains, New York— January 17, 2012 — African mango supplements are touted to help shed pounds, but do they really work? "Long-term weight loss with African mango has not been proven," said says Tod Cooperman, M.D., President of ConsumerLab.com which evaluated the claims and science for African mango. "The evidence for weight loss with African mango, so far, is only from short-term studies conducted by one group of researchers financed by the product's manufacturer," Dr. Cooperman added.

In its report about African mango supplements, ConsumerLab.com reviews the evidence, describes the specific extracts of African mango seed used in studies, and notes potential side effects with African mango. African mango seed extracts have not yet been characterized well enough for ConsumerLab.com to test and approve any product. However, ConsumerLab.com points out that a variety of African mango extracts are currently sold, including many from suppliers in China. Consumers should check a product's label to determine if it contains an extract like similar to what has been clinically tested.

The Review Article: African Mango (Seed Extract) Supplements for Weight Loss is now available to ConsumerLab.com members. Members have instant online access to the report and over 50 other major reports from ConsumerLab.com covering hundreds of popular supplements including multivitamins, probiotics, CoQ10, and fish oil supplements.
