Research in humans suggests that mango seed fiber (Irvingia gabonensis) may help with weight loss, either alone or combined with other dietary supplements. Irvingia gabonensis has been shown to improve body weight and waist and hip circumference, as well as levels of blood sugar, cholesterol, and hormones such as leptin and adiponectin. However, more evidence is needed to make firm conclusions on potential benefits.
