WellTrim® iG (IGOB131®) African Mango (Irvingia gabonensis) Seed Extract: 300 mg
WellTrim iG is a clinically studied extract of African mango, also known as Irvingia gambogia. African mango trees grow throughout farms and tropical forests of Central and Western Africa. This botanical ingredient is a traditional West African culinary fruit kernel in which the mucilage (a glycoprotein) is used to make traditional soups, such as Ogbono. WellTrim® iG is the authentic, patented, clinically tested irvingia seed extract for weight loss and metabolic wellness. One of WellTrim iG’s mechanisms of action is supporting leptin sensitivity.*
Leptin is a hormone involved with hunger signals. Research has shown leptin levels to be elevated in those who are overweight. Irvingia gabonensis supports leptin in its ability to enter the brain and signal the stomach that it is full.*
Studies have shown Irvingia gabonensis also supports levels of the hormone adiponectin, a hormone closely related to glucose regulation/insulin sensitivity. Insulin helps the body store glucose correctly. This helps maintain normal blood sugar levels and insulin activity. Adiponectin has been associated with maintaining normal insulin sensitivity, which can support long-term metabolic health and overall weight loss. Adiponectin has also been shown to inhibit adipocytes (fat cells) from differentiating and multiplying, support fat burning and to support healthy endothelial function. Adiponectin levels are are generally related to body fat percentage; the greater the levels of adiponectin, the lower the percentage of fat.*
Additionally, the body’s fat cells store excess fat in a form that is easily packed away. Irvingia gabonensis acts upon one of the enzymes, glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, which helps form this stored fat. By supporting leptin sensitivity and healthy levels of adiponectin, Irvingia has the potential to help control hunger, help maintain normal blood sugar balance and promote thermogenesis–all important components of the metabolic rate. There are two published human clinical studies that have shown effects of Irvingia gabonensis for areas including appetite control, satiety, thermogenesis, weight management and metabolic wellness. Significant improvements in weight management and metabolic wellness variables occurred in both studies.*+
