It is also known as the African Mango commonly grown in Africa and South East Asia. Fruits from these trees are often called dika nuts which contain high amounts of mucilage, traditionally used as a thickening agent. The aromatic nuts are typically dried in the sun for preservation, and are sold whole or in powder form. Ground into a paste they are used as a thickening agent in traditional dishes. Studies have shown that Irvingia Gabonensis significantly reduces body fat in obese subjects versus placebo by activating leptin, a natural hormone in weight control. The soluble fibre found in the seed is similar to other fibres and works as a bulk-forming laxative which also suppresses the appetite. Due to it delaying the emptying of the stomach, it leads to a more gradual absorption of dietary sugar. This reduces the elevation of blood sugar levels that is typical after a meal.
