HISTORY OF AFRICAN MANGO/IRVINGIA GABONENSIS

 
What is the African Mango?

Irvingia gabonensis is a West African tree species known as the bush mango or wild mango. Although it has just become popular in western cultures its benefits have been known for more than two centuries in and around Africa.

The tree has always been valued for its yellow fruit called the dika nut which is similar to a mango. It is not the fruit though, but the seed which has gained the attention of researchers for the seed has been found to have large amounts of healthy fats and high quality fiber.

Irvingia Gabonensis has played an important role in the nutrition, economy and traditional medicine in western and southwestern tropical Africa from Nigeria to Angola. Through the help of the United Nations, a number of scientists have been made available to enhance the production and commercial use of Irvingia.

Irvingia's benefits helped keep the Benin Army fit through several wars during the early 1800s according to reports from Nigeria. The first official studies conducted on Irvingia's benefits as a weight loss aid were not completed until just a few years ago after researchers and scientists started realizing the possible benefits of this African tree. Since then, numerous studies have shown Irvingia to aid in weight loss, improve total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and blood glucose levels.
