Irvingia gabonensis is an African tree.

It produces the mango fruit, an extract that promotes satiety and healthy body weight.

Weight loss utilizing diet modification, supplements, hormones, or drugs usually functions via a single mechanism. Adipocytes (fat cells), on the other hand, possess numerous means to ensure their survival. 

Benefits of Irvingia extract 

Irvingia Extract has been shown to help maintain healthy body weight in four ways:

  • Reversing leptin resistance
  • Increasing adiponectin
  • Inhibiting the fat converting enzyme
  • Reducing carbohydrate absorption

Studies on Irvingia and weight loss

Several studies demonstrate the weight loss properties of Irvingia. In the largest placebo controlled human study, those taking Irvingia lost 28 pounds over a 10-week period compared to only up to 3 pounds in the placebo group. The study participants did not alter their diet.

A combination of Integra-Lean™ Irvingia, fucoxanthin, and pomegranate seed oil called SlimSignals™ provides 150 mg of Irvingia in each softgel capsule, plus fucoxanthin and pomegranate seed oil. 

Fucoxanthin functions to increase nonstimulating thermogenesis (fat burning) in adipocytes, while pomegranate seed oil reduces blood supply to adipocytes.

Irvingia operates via additional mechanisms to combat surplus fat storage, including inhibition of glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, an enzyme involved in the conversion of glucose and triglycerides into adipocyte fat storage.
